Subscribe to our newsletter

UBS and a global Asian bank have successfully executed the first cross-border intraday repo transaction on Broadridge Financial Solutions’ blockchain-enabled Distributed Ledger Repo (DLR) platform. This milestone marks the launch of the next phase in the rollout of Broadridge’s DLR platform, a significant step towards a more efficient means of intraday liquidity management, building on the initial success of the platform and its growing expansion across the global repo community.

The DLR platform allows market participants to agree, execute, and settle repo transactions with flexible settlement cycles based on counterparties’ needs. By increasing settlement velocity and collateral mobility, the platform enables intraday transactions and reduces the operating cost and risk associated with all repo activity, including overnight and term repos.
