This is a joint research project with Professor Kumiko Koens (Yamagata University). It includes a critique of intermediated securities holding systems under domestic law and in the context of cross-border holding patterns.
It argues that modern systems of information technology can play an important role in overcoming flaws, excessive risk, and inflexibility under current legal regimes and market structures.
In particular it proposes a new platform for reducing risks in intermediated holding systems that would incorporate distributed ledger (i.e., blockchain) technology and connect all relevant stakeholders in one system at the end of each settlement cycle. The event will be chaired by Professor Hugh Beale.
