Blockchain -


Could you define what your job role details and your day to day routine? 


In my role at LSEG I’m responsible for co-steering the Group’s technology strategy around blockchain, DLT, emerging tech and innovation. We work closely with the divisional business leaders to provide tech SME to build adoption through initiatives that either promote operational and internal efficiencies or the development of new products and services leveraging emerging tech. We also provide advisory and analysis of industry tech macro and micro trends as well as broad engagement with regulators, fintechs and institutions across the space.


How is your organisation applying blockchain?


LSEG is primary focused on commercial use cases of DLT across the capital markets value chain. Digital assets represent a key part of our focus and LSEG recognise the value of DLT in streamlining the end-to-end workflow of capital markets from issuance, to safekeeping, asset servicing, trading, clearing and settlement.


What were the biggest challenges in using this technology?


The technology broadly is still in it’s infancy but has grown and developed in maturity over the past 18 months and we see this trend continuing as more enterprise projects move out of the R&D and PoC phase and into full-scale commercialisation.



What can we expect from your team in the next 12 months?


We may have some interesting announcements to make in the coming months so do watch this space.



What are you most looking forward to at the show?


Continued engagement with fintech’s demonstrating innovative solutions leveraging emerging tech. Opportunities for networking and business development.
