Trading & Risk Management: Blockchain & beyond

Tuesday, March 12

05:00 pm - 05:45 pm

Financial services provide clear cases of the effective use of blockchain to reduce costs, improve transparency, increase liquidity, and ultimately improve markets. Can blockchain do the same for energy trading in all its forms, and ultimately risk management? Can the industry work together to create secure platforms for deal validation, risk management, compliance monitoring? Can blockchain technology handle confirmation, trade reconciliation, and chain of custody documentation to transform global markets?
