ECMS: a game changer to access your central bank
Central banks play an important role in ensuring sufficient liquidity is available to financial markets. Historically, they have always acted as lenders of last resort by providing distressed institutions with liquidity, in addition to processing more routine operations, for example by providing credit to support settlement in central bank money. Perceptions around accessing central bank liquidity have been progressively changing and today using central bank credit has become a commonly used liquidity management tool for many financial institutions. This shift started as a result of the financial crisis of 2008.

DIGITAL ASSET WHITEPAPER

whitePaper | April 4, 2022

Decentralization, Scalability, or Security: Pick two. In brief, the Trilemma refers to the fact that networks in general (and distributed systems in particular) suffer from internal trust issues, proportionate to their size: The larger the size of any network, the greater the degrees of separation between its members and therefore the lower the level of trust. This problem can only be averted by either a) making it harder to join the network, reducing scalability; or b) delegating the responsibility (and associated privileges) of overseeing the network’s activities to a handful of specialized nodes, sacrificing the inherent appeal of decentralization.

Private equity secondaries investing

whitePaper | April 7, 2022

Private equity is an important source of capital for startups, young companies, firms in financial distress and companies that are seeking growth or buyout capital. As opposed to many other investment styles, private equity is an inherently activist asset class whereby the fund managers often exert significant influence over the underlying investments. Thus, investors in the asset class not only benefit from gaining exposure to otherwise inaccessible, unquoted/privately owned companies, but also from the skill-sets that fund managers bring to bear to improve a company’s long-term value.

Innovating through platforms and ecosystems

whitePaper | May 7, 2022

Many traditional financial services products are being commoditised. They are becoming irrelevant in the lives of customers. They are seen as table stakes. What customers really care about is value, convenience, and security. And what they want is a financial services ecosystem uniquely tailored to their specific needs. I am not particularly prone to making predictions. But – of this – I am fairly certain: in the next 15 years, all of the most successful financial services organisations will be platform players. The leaders will be defined by the ecosystems that gravitate around them. They will be measured by the incremental value they deliver their customers. And they will grow based on their ability to meet their customers’ needs.
