2020-7-24 13:13

 

今天,渣打银行宣布在2月份签约成为其客户后,已投资于Cobalt外汇交易(FX)后交易平台。Cobalt使用分布式账本技术(DLT)。


6个月前,花旗开始在这个平台上运营,并于2016年进行了投资。其他主要投资者包括IHS Markit和新加坡交易所,德意志银行(Deutsche Bank)和盛宝银行(Saxo Bank)是重要的平台用户。

 

Cobalt的声明


外汇(FX)后贸易基础设施提供商Cobalt宣布扩大其银行投资者规模,渣打银行(Standard Chartered)是其最新的支持者。今年2月,渣打银行(Standard Chartered)签约成为Cobalt平台的客户,如今加入花旗(Citi)的行列,成为Cobalt不断扩张的网络的投资者。


通过创建交易的单一版本和实时核查信用,钴可以降低运营成本,降低信用、结算和运营风险。


目前市场上的信贷被过度分配,这意味着重大的系统性风险,而Cobalt解决方案允许在客户和交易对手之间动态分配信贷,从而完全符合《全球外汇代码》。


Cobalt将新技术引入交易后,提供了一个高可用性、高吞吐量的平台,实现了交易生命周期的完全自动化,而不需要额外的下游对账。


Cobalt的技术具有多重功能,能够为银行间、prime、买方和银行与客户的关系提供服务。由于信息安全标准与一级银行相当,Cobalt允许银行为自己的客户使用该技术。


渣打银行宏观首席运营官加雷斯·詹姆斯说:“我们认为Cobalt是我们外汇操作平台的核心部分,它使渣打银行能够通过自动化整个银行的手工流程来降低风险和成本,从而改善对客户的服务。这笔投资显示了我们对该平台的信心,我们期待继续发展与Cobalt的关系。”


Cobalt首席执行官Darren Coote:“过去几个月是金融市场动荡的时期,市场参与者迅速意识到,他们目前的基础设施不适合新常态。在此期间,Cobalt的解决方案继续让我们的网络轻松运营,并降低了至关重要的运营成本。”


“我们欢迎渣打银行成为我们最新的客户投资者,并期待在这一新领域继续与他们合作,以改善我们的服务并扩展我们的产品,尤其关注新兴市场。”

 

Today it was announced that Standard Chartered has invested in the Cobalt foreign exchange (FX) post-trade platform after signing up as a customer in February. Cobalt uses distributed ledger technology (DLT).

Six months ago, Citi went live on the platform, having invested back in 2016. Other major investors include IHS Markit and the Singapore Exchange, and significant platform users are Deutsche Bank and Saxo Bank.

Cobalt Announcement

The foreign exchange (FX) post-trade infrastructure provider Cobalt, has announced the expansion of its bank investors with Standard Chartered as its latest backer. Having signed as a client on Cobalt’s platform in February, Standard Chartered now joins Citi as an investor in Cobalt’s expanding network.

By creating a single version of a trade and checking credit in real-time Cobalt is able to cut operational costs and reduce credit, settlement and operational risk.

Credit is currently over-allocated in the market and represents significant systemic risk and the Cobalt solution allows for dynamic credit allocation across clients and counterparties to allow full compliance with the FX Global Code.

Bringing new technology into post-trade, Cobalt delivers a high availability, high throughput platform which enables full automation of the trade lifecycle, without the need for additional downstream reconciliation.

Cobalt’s technology has multiple lenses and is able to service interbank, prime, buy-side and bank-to-client relationships. With information security standards on par with a Tier 1 bank, Cobalt allows banks to brand the technology to use for their own clients.

Gareth James, Macro COO from Standard Chartered: “We see Cobalt as being a core part of our FX operating platform, enabling Standard Chartered to reduce risk and costs by automating manual processes across the bank and therefore improving services to our clients. This investment shows our confidence in the platform and we look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with Cobalt.”

Darren Coote, CEO at Cobalt: “The past few months have been a tumultuous time for the financial markets with market participants realising quickly that their current infrastructures were not fit for the new normal. During this period Cobalt’s solutions have continued to allow our network to operate at ease as well as reducing their all-important operating costs.”

“We welcome Standard Chartered as our latest client investor and look forward to continuing to work with them in this new capacity, to both improve our services and extend our offering, with a particular focus on the emerging markets.”
