This Conference has languished relatively unchanged for many years, but the digitalisation revolution is accelerating and the drain on time and resources caused by antique securities settlement infrastructure is becoming more and more obvious. Banks, technology companies, issuers and regulators are working swiftly on improving the settlement architecture across asset classes.

The flagship conference brings together key financial market actors, regulators and multilateral institutions to explore the benefits and risks of the application of new technologies, such as distributed ledger technology, to financial assets and capital market infrastructures.

The conference marks the launch. The report includes a survey of public sector funding teams on their plans for and expectations of digital assets. Digital Monetary Institute partners will have the opportunity to contribute their expertise and thought leadership both within the report and at the conference.

Topics of discussion:

• Review of the process to digitalise the bond issuance process.
• Examination of the advantages of potential improvements to trading infrastructure (includes automated market-making and liquidity provision, tokenisation of non-blockchain native instruments and payment flows)
• Exploration of the degree to which blockchain has been adopted as cap table tracking software
• Investigation into the impact of digitalisation on capital markets (e.g. improving participation in local currencies and digitalisation for FX)
• Consideration of how technology is generating improvements in liquidity management
• Examination of the potential of a use case for blockchain to improve the governance and oversight of both green finance instruments, including green bonds, social bonds and sustainability-linked bonds.

Building on the success of the inaugural central banks and digital currencies symposium, OMFIF’s DMI is uniquely positioned to bring key stakeholders together to move the modernisation effort forward.
