VIDEO | While post-trade processes where identified early on as a natural area for distributed ledger technology, it long seemed that real-life successes were yet to arrive – and unfinished regulation appeared to be part of the reason. 2022, however, has seen notable breakthroughs. In PostTrade 360° Helsinki, legal expert Hannah Meakin of Norton Rose Fulbright lined out where we are at on the decisive DLT regulation, and how we got here.

On digital assets, what will the path to a regulated playing field look like? Cutting through the technical details can be challenging, but with the broad post-trade pro audience in Helsinki, Hannah Meakin took on that challenge, to go for the broad strokes.

Tech folks show little doubt that DLT-based securities solutions will give us more efficient systems and open new markets. So far, however, institutional investors are among those who stay on the sideline until there is stable-enough regulation. So what will it look like, and how do we get there?
