Smart contracts are receiving significant attention — both for their cutting-edge technology and for their potential disruptive use in financial services and other industries. They have the potential to transform businesses and deliver significant cost savings by automating and streamlining processes.

Our briefing will focus on the application of smart contracts in financial services, the identification and development of use cases and the prospects for commercial use.

In addition, we will discuss the challenges faced by financial institutions in utilizing the technology under the existing regulatory framework and highlight the most recent guidance and comments from U.S. financial regulators.

Topics will include:

  • Mechanics of "smart contracts" and blockchain technology
