Use Case: Custody & Safekeeping

Existing platforms create high
costs and systemic risk for the safekeepers of assets.

Many of today's custody systems have manual, time-intensive processes that result in a lack of transaction traceability. There are virtually no fully efficient workflows for managing end-client assets, requiring the shifting of assets across custodians, sub-custodians and other providers, and resulting in the lack of real-time, accurate information.
