FundsDLT: Natixis AM tests blockchain technology

16.06.2017

On June 16, Natixis Asset Management announced that it had started testing the FundsDLT blockchain1-powered platform for fund managers.

Announced in Luxembourg in December 2016, the FundsDLT concept is the result of collaboration between Fundsquare, InTech (subsidiary of POST Group) and KPMG Luxembourg. FundsDLT is the market infrastructure solution of the future that will meet the needs of both asset managers and international distributors, and streamline a range of fund administration and order-routing tasks by using blockchain to automate several processes in a secure manner. The platform will provide asset managers with a new distribution channel, while significantly reducing costs and the time to process transactions. FundsDLT will further facilitate the digital transformation of the funds distribution industry.

It has taken less than a year to build a scalable and resilient decentralized solution dedicated to the fund industry, using state-of-the-art technologies and a combination of blockchain and reactive platform.

Matthieu Duncan, CEO of Natixis Asset Management is enthusiastic about the project:
We are delighted to be among the first asset managers to test the FundsDLT platform. The initiative is truly unique and we see it as a natural development that will certainly impact our operational models and benefit our clients. Blockchain technology, which Natixis is looking into across several of its business lines, shows great opportunities in terms of enhancing distribution mechanisms in the asset management industry.
