The fintech, distributed ledger technology (DLT) and cryptoassets markets continued to develop extremely rapidly in 2021 and this looks set to continue.
Moving into 2022, the main themes that we see in these markets so far as they relate to derivatives and structured products are:
Further development of the use of DLT and new technologies in financial market infrastructures and markets more broadly. We are seeing the launch or expansion of DLT-based platforms out of test environments and into production, including across the securities, repo, securities lending and derivatives markets. These are supported by novel infrastructure arrangements relying on tokenised cash and securities. We are also seeing these technologies support new ESG-related products, amongst other rapidly developing markets.
As part of Linklaters’ “Year to Come and Year in Review” series, our global fintech team has published its Fintech Global Year to Come 2022 and Year in Review 2021 publication, which has further detail on what we look forward to in 2022 in the fintech space and a summary of the key legal and regulatory developments in 2021.
