FRT Episode 31: Developments in Digital Assets

In this episode of FRT, we catch-up with Mark Wetjen, Managing Director, Head of Global Public Policy at The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) to discuss current trends in digital assets and take-aways from the recent IIF Digital Currency Roundtable. DTCC has a long history of leveraging technology to drive innovation in their business and brings a perspective from the center of the financial services ecosystem. 

The backdrop of this conversation was an IIF roundtable meeting which brought together central bank governors, commercial bank leaders, and experts from technology and law firms to discuss central bank digital currency, commercial bank coins, and regulatory frameworks for digital assets. This podcast shares views on the trajectory for digital assets, next generation market infrastructure, and the challenges of bringing innovative technology into a complex securities ecosystem with legacy legal and regulatory frameworks for the industry.
