Welcome to The Banker’s Day 4 Programme for Sibos 2022: Thursday 13 October


10:45 BST: Should global trade finance go decentralised?

Permissionless access. No operator. No fiat assets. Records on distributed ledgers. Risk taking distributed to users with no central trust anchor. Is this a recipe for cost-efficient financial intermediation and the future of financial inclusion? Or could it lead to increased systemic risk and heightened liquidity, cybersecurity, anti-money laundering, counter-terrorist financing, and legal uncertainties? Join panellists for a lively, interactive session on one of the most widely debated topics in finance and socioeconomics. The panel will explore the potential ramifications of decentralised finance for global trade and the best way forward for facilitating access to financing for the real economy.
