Asset-backed Securities and Fixed Income

Market Problem

Today’s market infrastructure is highly fragmented, with issuers, underwriters, custodians, transfer agents and investors relying on disparate data sources requiring constant reconciliation. This necessitates the use of multiple intermediaries to enable the primary issuance and secondary trading of financial assets. These layers add costs, reduce capital efficiency and slow settlement times.
