The transformation of the financial services industry is top-of-mind for everyone in the field. As digitization has “changed the game” for all industry sectors, distributed ledger technology, also known as blockchain, has emerged as a hot topic. But how can this technology help financial firms? This report from Deloitte and World Economic Forum takes a pragmatic approach to answering this question.

Our findings suggest this technology has the potential to “live-up to the hype” and reshape financial services, but requires careful collaboration from other emerging technologies, regulators, incumbents, and additional stakeholders to be successful.
