GFF Podcast episode 3: Central bank digital currencies & digital transformation in the finance industry
In this episode we welcome Steve Jacoby, Banking Finance and Capital Market Partner at Clifford Chance to speak about the changing digital infrastructure in finance and the challenges that the industry faces.
We discuss the use of securities (collateral) and cash (digital currencies) in a distributed ledger technology (DLT) environment. New technologies such as blockchain and DLT continue to be in the focus of financial marketplaces as well as central banks. This episode analyses the challenges we are currently facing in regard to central bank digital currencies, and the advances in digital issuance, tokenisation, DLT collateral management and settlement systems.
