ICMA Future Leaders Fintech Working Group Podcast Series | Episode 3 | The challenges behind cash settlement of digital bond transactions


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. As part of the IFL working group’s activities, it has organised a series of podcasts with market experts focusing on digital ledger technology or DLT.

In this episode, IFL’s Sébastien Van Campenhoudt discusses with David Newns (Head of SDX) how securities settlement could be performed by CSDs in a DLT environment, with a specific focus on how the cash leg of the transaction can be processed.

Other episodes in the series:
Episode 1 | The business case for DLT in capital markets
Episode 2 | The European regulatory landscape, CMU and digitalisation
Episode 4 | The history and future of blockchain bonds
