花旗和芝商所携手利用区块链技术提高运营效率

上周五,花旗集团(Citi)与芝加哥商品交易所集团(CME Group)联合宣布,将推出一个区块链平台,帮助两个集团减少后勤相关成本、加快融资时间。对于那些因清算而不得不将抵押资金搁置一边的银行来说,此举可能解放出数十亿美元的抵押资金。

这两家金融巨头期望利用这一体系提高效率,实现抵押品实时监控以及清算所交易即时确认。

花旗期货、结算及抵押品业务主管Stephen Marx解释了这个平台的优点,称区块链技术可减少人工成本、降低电邮流量、避免登入多个端口,并为用户提高效率。

应用程序界面(API)由结算服务商Baton Systems提供。该公司CEO Arjun Jayaram解释了区块链系统如何与现有科技结合以提供交互兼容性:、

这一实时支付平台可以迅速拓展到任何一个金融机构、交易所或清算中心,大幅提高经营及成本节约的效率。其优点是简约、且可发挥区块链的最有利长处,同时引入互操作性、可扩展性,以轻松契合现有的科技。

据了解,芝商所清算业务总裁Sunil Cutinho说,芝商所很愿意支持类似技术的研发工作,希望借此为客户提高资本效率。

 

On December 15, 2017, Citi and CME Group revealed the implementation of a blockchain-inspired platform to cut costs associated with back-office operations while simultaneously accelerating funding timeframes on margins. It could free up billions in collateral that banks waiting for settlement would otherwise put aside.

Both financial giants expect to achieve greater levels of efficiency using the system, which will enable real-time monitoring of collateral and technology-agnostic instant clearing house transaction acknowledgment.

Stephen Marx, Head of Futures, Clearing, and Collateral Operations at Citi, explained the platform's advantages. "This technology allows us to eliminate manual touch points, reduce email traffic, and avoid logging into multiple portals," said Marx. "The capabilities in the funding and collateral space create efficiency and improve productivity for our clients."

The API was created by settlement provider Baton Systems. Arjun Jayaram, CEO, described how selective use of blockchain systems intermingle with existing tech to provide cross-compatibility:

"This innovative real-time payments platform is immediately scalable across any financial institution, exchange or clearing house to deliver sizeable operational and cost efficiencies. Its beauty is its simplicity, leveraging the most useful elements of blockchain, while introducing interoperability and extensibility to easily fit with existing technology 'rails' and business processes."

In addition to the immediate benefits of the platform, Baton Systems is looking at other ways to leverage the system's API to tackle collateral substitutions.

According to Sunil Cutinho, President of CME Clearing, the financial house is "pleased to support technologies like these, which aim to provide capital efficiencies to customers."
