CSD on Distributed Ledger Technology

Our Central Securities Depository (CSD) runs on Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), which is the heart of the digital market infrastructure of the future. While drawing from elements seen in the crypto world, this system presents distinct nuances. It’s fully regulated by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA, and it operates on a private permissioned network and a need-to-know basis for its members, such as banks and securities firms. It also ensures backwards integration to the existing market infrastructure by SIX Group. So that syndicate banks together with their clients can issue native digital bonds based Swiss securities law that can also live in the traditional world. Digital bonds can settle against tokenized CHF on chain, where they are securely stored in cryptographic wallets for end investors.

Euro-Denominated Bonds

SDX is expanding its services to include euro-denominated bonds. This means that it will allow the issuance and listing of digital native bonds denominated in EUR on the platform and in the near future, will expand the offering to include existing EUR-denominated bonds that can be tokenized. This means that they can potentially tokenize almost any EUR-denominated bond that exists.

One notable advantage of digital bonds in the EUR-denominated bond market is the mitigation of settlement risks. In this market, trades are typically settled bilaterally without involving central counterparties. By leveraging the platform’s instant settlement capabilities, counterparties can trade bonds with each other, even if they are unknown to one another, without facing settlement risks. This is a significant improvement made possible by the technology and can bring greater efficiency and security to the market.
