Global banking giant HSBC will explore the use of blockchain for the issuance of fixed income securities in a joint trial with Singapore Exchange (SGX) and investment firm Temasek.
Financial institutions will test the benefits of distributed ledger technology for issuing and servicing fixed income securities, taking into account the characteristics of Asian bond markets.
HSBC noted that bond markets in Asia are growing rapidly, but their effectiveness is poor since there is no single platform for issuing securities and exchanging data between different organizations.
As part of the testing, it is planned to launch a private decentralized network for tokenizing bonds using smart contracts. It should significantly speed up the process, reduce the number of errors and costs for all parties involved.
Tony Cripps, CEO of the Singapore branch of HSBC Bank, said:
“Only by collaborating with market participants will we fully understand its actual viability.”
