Global Custodian has teamed up with The ValueExchange and the International Securities Services Association (ISSA) to launch a survey on how distributed ledger technology (DLT) is being adopted through the investment lifecycle. 

 This report is designed to provide hype-free clarity into DLTproviding statistical data on who is driving the technology, its intended applications, benefits and insights around its deployment.

Global Custodian subscribers will be given early access to the results, aimed at providing meaningful, statistical benchmarks on where DLT really is being used.

Blockchain/DLT are no longer new technologies,” said Barnaby Nelson, founder and CEO of The ValueExchange. “After years of study and development, these much-heralded technologies are now making their way into mainstream usage: providing financial organisations with opportunities for transformational growth. 

Today we are in between two important phases of adoption: conceptual validation has happened but we have not reached large scale adoption. We have no shortage of industry specialists who see the potential applications of these technologies in our ecosystem: yet we also face large numbers of professionals who are sceptical about how they could ever be used ‘in anger’. In a heavily mediatised space, it is therefore hard for industry participants to know where they stand. 

The report is supported by Digital Asset and Accenture.

This survey will enable market participants to be able to source actionable, industry benchmarks on where they are in their own innovation-journey: how they compare with their peers, what their competitors are focused on and what their customers are expecting.
