YOUR TRUSTED TECHNOLOGY PARTNER FOR PERMISSIONED POST-TRADE NETWORKS

VISION & MISSION

RISE was created with a focused vision to bring the best of De-Centralised Ledger Technology (DLT) to the post-trade services market. Creating a foundational solution for this industry started by taking the best of what was offered by DLT and leveraging an experienced group of post-trade industry experts. We identified  shortcomings in existing DLT solutions that created high hurdles for adoption in the post-trade services market.

 

Deep business insights combined with the RISE acquisition of a pioneering distributed technology team, enabled RISE to build a solution that would meet all the requirements for the post-trade industry. To gain further insight into what has been designed as the premier solution for post-trade services, contact us for a copy of our architecture paper.

 

Today, RISE is an independent firm based in London that is a market leader in the provision of DLT solutions for post-trade services. Its mission is to enable regulated financial institutions to move into the new world of shared and distributed ledgers - with conviction in scalability and confidentiality of the solution to which they are entrusting their assets today and their future growth.

 

The RISE solution allows its clients to efficiently issue, settle, and record-keep assets, both traditional instruments and emerging crypto assets. The benefits realised by adopting our DLT solution are substantial and go far beyond compelling cost savings. However, as we realise that cost savings are a crucial factor for a client’s business case and ROI, we have conducted a buy-side sponsored in-depth bottom-up cost analysis. Savings of 26% to 44% per annum are available on settlement activities alone. As part of our solution design engagement we can tailor this cost analysis to any client’s individual situation.

" The post-trade industry is

a data management and trust business involving many legitimate parties that perform different regulated functions and manage different risks - That is why distributed ledgers bring substantial benefits "

 

POST-TRADE INFRASTRUCTURE

RISE fully understands clients’ needs and preferences differ, so we have created a flexible gated engagement model to accommodate these needs, as well as to help you control your entry risks and costs. This model is a combination of advisory services and technology on offer built from best practices learned thus far across all our DLT engagements.
