TCS Powers World's First Cross-Border Securities Settlement

Posted On: 2019-04-10 13:07:00

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has announced the world's first successful cross-border securities settlement between two central securities depositories (CSDs) - Maroclear, the CSD of Morocco, and Kuwait Clearing Company, the CSD of Kuwait - using cash coins on the BaNCS Network, powered by Quartz Blockchain.

The BaNCS Network is a private permissioned blockchain ecosystem through which the 450 TCS BaNCS customers across banking, market infrastructure, custody and insurance domains, can collaborate by seamlessly connecting to a single ledger and accessing information and services on a real-time basis. This can open up access to new markets, services and business lines across geographical boundaries.

In tests run by the two CSDs, a set of equities and fixed income securities from both the Kuwaiti and Moroccan markets were created on the BaNCS Network implemented on Quartz Blockchain, along with segregated accounts to hold these securities. The cross-border settlement instructions for these securities were matched and settled instantaneously on the blockchain ledger using Quartz's Smart Solution for Cross-Border Settlements. The associated notifications on the status of transactions were published on the BaNCS Network and instantaneously made available to the respective CSDs. These transactions were settled using cash coins held in the Quartz Blockchain in a true delivery versus payment (DVP) settlement model.

"We have demonstrated that by using disruptive technologies like Btockchain, we can overcome limitations in prevailing business models and create new business opportunities for our customers. With our strategic vision of providing innovotive technology solutions to our finoncial markets, we have expanded our decade-long relationship with TCS alongside the capabitities of TCS BaNCS, the BINCS Network ond Quortz Blockchoin solutions in exploring new operationol opportunities to enable the cross-border settlements landscape in the Moroccan ond African markets," said Fathia Bennis, CEO, Maroclear.

Commenting on the success of this new approach to cross-border settlements, Khaldoun Aftabtabaie, CEO, Kuwait clearing company, said, "At KCC, we want to be at the forefront of innovation in Kuwait and the region, which is a key factor in fulfilling our ambitious strategy to develop the market. Along with managing and implementing the post trade morket transformation plans, we explored blockchain technology in order to introduce new services and operational efficiencies in the financial market. The seamless integration of the Market infrastructure solution from TCS BaNCS with Quartz Blockchain now opens up new opportunities for us to explore the usage of Blockchain in the Kuwaiti market."

R Vivekanand, Vice President and Co-Head, TCS Financialsolutions, soid, "The BaNCS Network has been created by TCS to leveroge the power of Blockchain to deliver exponential value from ecosystems, a part of TCS' Business 4.0 vision. We are pleased to see our TCS BaNCS customers, Maroclear and Kuwait Clearing Company, leverage this capability, vindicating our commitment to provide sustained long-term value and innovation to our customers. Real-time cross-border settlement with cash coins reduces risks, costs and has the potential to create enhanced liquidity in markets in Middle East and Africa."

Cash coins are a form of digital currency pegged to a fiat currency at a fixed market rate and are maintained on a private, permissioned blockchain network. Cash coins in a blockchain network enable seamless and real-time DVP settlement of cross-border securities transactions. Instantaneous settlement significantly reduces the currency risk associated with such transactions at present, arising out of exchange rate fluctuations during the time it takes to settle. This settlement model has the potential to significantly reduce liquidity requirements for participants, while also decreasing settlement risks.

They comprise the Quartz Smart Solutions, a set of 'Designed for Blockchain' business solutions for different industries, the Quartz DevKit, Smart Contract development kits to enable programming of high quality code on multiple Blockchain technologies, the Quartz Gateway, for the integration of existing solutions with blockchain ecosystems, and, the Quartz Command Center that can administer and monitor entire ecosystems.
