新加坡交易所、淡马锡成立数字资产合资企业

2021-1-24 16:08

 

新加坡交易所(SGX)和政府支持的投资基金淡马锡(Temasek)宣布成立一家合资公司,以解决数字资产领域的问题。该解决方案将利用区块链、通证化和智能合约的工作流程,首先解决高摩擦的债券市场部门。基金和可持续金融等新兴资产类别也可能出现。


该平台已经非常先进,去年8月曾为农业企业奥兰(Olam)发行了4亿新元(合3.01亿美元)的债券,汇丰(HSBC)提供了链上结算。这是总计超过10亿新元(7.53亿美元)的四次发行之一。


新加坡交易所高级董事总经理Lee Beng Hong表示:“我们将共同利用继续塑造全球资本市场的数字化趋势,并推动亚洲资本市场基础设施的发展。”


虽然许多数字资产平台的目标是端到端,但值得注意的是,该平台寻求与可以利用新加坡交易所交易后和资产服务基础设施的固定收益发行平台合作。这似乎是一个明智的策略,因为它有潜力创建一个更大的生态系统。


这两家公司都是另一家专注于亚洲的数字资产平台iSTOX的投资者,该平台昨日宣布获得日本政府支持企业的支持。泰国证券交易所计划在2021年下半年推出数字资产平台。


淡马锡对区块链还有不少其他兴趣。它是摩根大通-星展银行合资企业的参与者,在新加坡使用摩根大通硬币技术提供批发多货币支付基础设施。它还是Diem的成员,Diem的前身是Libra,还有其他投资,比如数字身份初创公司Affinidi。

 

The Singapore Exchange (SGX) and state-backed investment fund Temasek announced the creation of a joint venture to address the digital assets space. The solution will leverage blockchain, tokenization and smart contracts for workflows, initially addressing the high friction bond market sector. Funds and emerging asset classes such as sustainable finance are also on the cards.

The platform is already far advanced and was used in August last year to issue a S$400 million ($301m) bond for agribusiness Olam with HSBC providing on-chain settlement. This was one of four issuances that have totaled more than S$1 billion ($753m).

“Together, we will capitalise on digitalisation trends that continue to shape global capital markets, and advance the development of capital markets infrastructure in Asia,” said Lee Beng Hong, Senior Managing Director, SGX.

While many digital asset platforms aim to be end-to-end, it’s notable that this one seeks to partner with fixed income issuance platforms that can leverage SGX’s post-trade and asset servicing infrastructure. That seems like a smart strategy because it has the potential to create a larger ecosystem.

Both companies are investors in another Asian focused digital asset platform, iSTOX, which yesterday announced backing from Japanese government-backed firms. The Stock Exchange of Thailand is planning to launch a digital assets platform in the second half of 2021.

Temasek has quite a few other blockchain interests. It is a participant in the JP Morgan – DBS Bank venture to provide a wholesale multi-currency payments infrastructure in Singapore using JPM Coin technology. It’s also a member of Diem, formerly Libra and has other investments, such as in digital identity startup Affinidi.
