Based on blockchain consortium R3’s open source blockchain platform Corda Enterprise, Finastra’s Fusion LenderComm reportedly enables banks to instantly share credit agreements, accrual balances and position data to lenders.
Cécile Bartenieff, Chief Operating Officer of Global Banking and Investor Solutions at Societe Generale, stated that the Fusion LenderComm initiative will bring more transparency and operational efficiency to the syndicated loan market, which is “an illustration of how blockchain can help banks optimize the entire flow of financial operations.”
Earlier today, popular Brazlian bank Banco Bradesco joined R3’s Marco Polo blockchain network for trade finance. Other member organizations include BNP Paribas, ING and the Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation.
Recently, Nordic private banking institution Nordea announced an expansion of its blockchain-powered trading platform we.trade to small and medium-sized business customers (SMEs). The platform intends to bring more trust in dealing with cross-border trades by SMEs.
