Through blockchain technology, Finastra’s Treasury & Capital Markets customers can eliminate paper documents while reducing capital markets trading costs and risks

Finastra announced a collaboration with Fragmos Chain, a blockchain platform which digitalizes interactions between financial institutions, to provide Finastra customers with out-of-the-box integration with Finastra Summit, its over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market solution. The API-first integration, via FusionFabric.cloud, enables banks globally to digitalize their OTC derivatives products to reduce the costs and risks associated with manual processes.

Daniel Ivanier, CEO at Fragmos Chain said, “Our partnership with Finastra is transforming the way banks interoperate. By digitalizing the confirmation process of all derivatives, automating all post-trade processes and arduous documentation, such as for the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA), and eliminating paper, we are helping banks to streamline their operations, trade efficiently and securely, and reduce their risks, capital and costs. We are excited to collaborate with Finastra and bring a value-added service to banks using its industry-leading capital markets software.”
