Back in the blockchain heyday of 2016-18 there was no shortage of schemes to apply the technology to primary market issuance, bond market trading, and post-trade settlement and financing. Some of the ideas of that burst of creativity are now coming to market. Join the Future of Finance webinar on Blockchain in the Bond Markets on Wednesday 30 June to find out how blockchain is being applied to:

– Bond issuance on to distributed networks
– The on-chain trading of bonds between market participants
– The financing of bond market transactions in an on-chain repo market
– The use of bonds as collateral to secure commercial and central bank money
– Settlement of bond transactions on and off chain
