ICMA Future Leaders Fintech Working Group Podcast Series | Episode 1 | The business case for DLT in capital markets
ICMA Future Leaders (IFL) launched a Fintech working group earlier in 2021 to look into developments in Fintech including digital assets, blockchain transactions in capital markets, the evolution of securities technology, among others, to support ICMA’s overall role in this fast evolving area.
