DLT ‘perfect solution’ to deliver real-time liquidity management

R3 believes distributed ledger technology (DLT) could be the answer to overhaul the necessary infrastructure.


Market participants are crying out for real-time visibility of their cash accounts, as the velocity of money in the financial system increases.

“There are a number of obstacles facing the treasurer looking for more efficient liquidity management, and they are not all to do with technology,” says Craig Ramsay, head of innovation for global liquidity and cash management at HSBC.
