DLT IN THE REAL WORLD podcast by The ValueExchange — STACS and Trade Processing

How is DLT really making an impact in the capital markets space today? Listen to the episode here.

Our inaugural joint podcast with The ValueExchange: DLT In the Real World — the facts & figures behind digitisation, as Barnaby Nelson, Chief Executive Officer at The ValueExchange and Nigel Lam, Product and Strategic Partnership Senior Manager at STACS break through the noise of the day and unravel the blockchain transformation of Trade Processing. In this episode, we discussed how our Real-Time Synchronised DLT Trade Processing platform, Mercury, can solve a USD800 million industry problem, and eliminate trade breaks by 96%, minimising costly risks and unlocking balance sheets and opportunities.

This podcast is part of The ValueExchange’s newest mini-series of the #vxInsight podcast — designed to give a clear picture of the real-life deliverables of DLT / blockchain deployments in our world. No hype or future tense — just real-life cases, facts, figures, and measurable impacts.

Mercury is a solution co-created with our partners BNP Paribas Securities Services and Eastspring Investments and has been successfully deployed live with leading global financial institutions since June 2020.

Nigel Lam explains how our technology solution is changing the trade processing space one step at a time — by providing a common infrastructure for asset managers, brokers, and middle offices to manage trades in an instantaneous, distributed, concurrent, and error-free process — Simultaneous instead of Sequential.
