Blockchain high on agenda of capital markets players

Blockchain is one to watch, particularly when it comes to mission-critical tasks such as securing data and transactions

Capital markets is ahead of the disruptive tech curve with 51% of respondents to an Intertrust survey saying that the likes of Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain and robotics are already being adopted in their sector (sector average came out as 33%).

Looking ahead over the next five years, 76% said that AI is the technology with the most potential to disrupt things further. 72% believe blockchain could also have a significant impact

“AI is quickly becoming mainstream and early adopters are reaping the benefits of applying new technologies to business process, especially time-consuming manual tasks that can now be safely automated,” says Cliff Pearce, Global Head of Capital Markets at Intertrust.

“Looking ahead, there is no doubt that the industry has yet to realise the full potential of AI, however our research suggests that blockchain is also one to watch, particularly when it comes to mission-critical tasks such as securing data and transactions.”
