Our Thinking

Thought Leadership: Deploying Blockchain

Commodity markets are fraught with process inefficiencies and risks of fraud and error. By moving the trading and settlement process onto the blockchain, participants could:

  • Slash costs of business by up to 30%
  • Reduce fraud risk and dispute resolutions
  • Benefit from greater market trust and liquidity

Clearly there is no shortage of hype surrounding this technology. We are working with industry leaders as part of the journey from promise to reality.

Imagining Commodity Smart Contracts

Smart Contracts: are often talked about in our markets. We took some time to sketch out what they could look like and what they could do. While their interfaces may look like just another web form, the new commercial constructs that sit behind them have far reaching implications for:

  • Counterparty on boarding and risk management
  • Automatic post trade dispute reconciliation
  • Streamlined price discovery processes
  • Real time, real world logistics integration

We think these simple front ends could unlock game changing process efficiencies and massively reduced transaction times. The benefits to markets could be huge but the challenges in standardisation and adoption are far from trivial. What do you think? Get in touch and let us know.
