Gary DeWaal, special counsel in the Financial Markets and Funds practice, will participate in "Current State of Play of Digital Ledger Technology in Financial Transactions from a Global Perspective" at 11:30 a.m. (ET) on Tuesday, September 22. Panelists will discuss how Digital Ledger Technology (DLT), which has a wide variety of applications across a plethora of industries, particularly in financial services, has the potential to become a handy tool in the finance world after COVID-19 has brought to light many of the inefficiencies in financial transactions across a variety of asset classes and product types — from foreign exchange settlement and documentary collections to custody arrangements to consumer payments — but the technology faces headwinds from a patchwork of international regulatory landscapes.
