Zero-Minute Bond Market Settlements With Digital $A

Must Read

In a revolutionary move, Australia’s payments giant Digital $A aims to completely revolutionize the bond market by slashing settlement times to zero. With a market size of over $1.5 trillion, this will have massive implications for banks and investors alike.

The new initiative seeks to compress the time it typically takes to settle trades in the bond market from two days to an impressive zero-day window. This bold move effectively removes settlement risks for those involved, reducing costs for banks and investors.

Imperium Markets is taking a significant step to revolutionize the bond market by joining Australia’s Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) pilot program. With its tier 2 financial markets license granted in 2017 by ASIC, Imperium looks set to be at the forefront of modernizing global capital flows through digital currency technology.

Imperium Markets chief executive Stu Burns said, “We will achieve atomic settlement of the issuance and trading of deposits, certificates of deposit, and floating rate notes.”

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has teamed up with Imperium Markets to prove that bonds and deposits, the primary sources of economic funding, can be traded and settled instantly. This is a significant breakthrough in financial efficiency, access to funds, and superb customer service.

The new initiative from Digital $A and Imperium Markets will dramatically improve current processes in the bond market that can see bonds held in escrow accounts for up to two days after the trade. This could cause major delays, requiring payment and title reconciliation between banking, accounting, and technology systems.

Banks and investors will benefit from significantly lower costs thanks to reduced interest rate risk associated with holding bonds until the settlement is complete.

The banking sector is gearing up for one of the most momentous changes in finance history since its inception centuries ago.
