On 12 June 2017, Calastone announced the completion of the first phase of a proof-of-concept (PoC) to test the feasibility of using distributed ledger technology (blockchain) to further reduce the frictional cost of trading mutual funds across global markets.
This innovation initiative sets out a vision for a distributed market infrastructure, using blockchain, which could provide a common marketplace for the trading and settlement of mutual funds.
During the second phase of the distributed market infrastructure innovation programme, Calastone has engaged with a number of design partners drawn from different funds market participants, across geographies, to test the model infrastructure and understand wider business challenges from a market participant perspective.
Outside of our Design Partner programme, we welcome other interested parties to register interest in the programme by joining our Distributed Market Infrastructure - Special Interest Group.
As a member of the group, you will receive regular news and updates concerning the programme and occasionally may be asked to contribute to the programme through surveys where we may test concepts and ideas.
Please complete the form within this page to register, the group is open to clients and members of the funds community, we therefore ask that you register using your business email and contact details.
