Deutsche, bank, Singapore, Hashstacs, PoC, digital assets, Smart ContractsDeutsche Bank Securities Services and Hashstacs (STACS) have collaborated to explore a proof-of-concept related to the technological and practical feasibility of digital assets interoperability, liquidity, cross-border connectivity, and smart contract templates, including the support of sustainability-themed digital bonds.

STACS, in collaboration with Deutsche Bank Securities Services, was awarded the Proof-of-Concept (POC) grant on 29 October 2020, which provides funding support for experimentation, development and dissemination of nascent innovative technologies in the financial services sector. The POC grant is part of the Financial Sector Technology and Innovation (FSTI) scheme under the Financial Sector Development Fund administered by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

Singapore-based STACS is a FinTech development company providing transformative technology to the financial services sector. STACS is focused on capital markets use cases, such as the trade lifecycle management of bonds, Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) FinTech, structured products and exchange-traded derivatives (ETDs).

Jeslyn Tan, Global Head of Product Management, Securities Services at Deutsche Bank enunciated, “As the sponsor of the project, we are proud to partner with STACS on the MAS FSTI funding scheme. Investors will increasingly need to custodize their digital assets, ensure settlement finality, and have confidence in their safekeeping and security with the support of a bank’s institutional infrastructure. As a result, we see a clear place for an integrated platform that can service cross-border issuer-investor needs in Singapore and around the world.”

Benjamin Soh, Managing Director at STACS enthused, “We are thrilled to collaborate with Deutsche Bank on this transformative technological project, and further the expansion of our work in green fintech and ESG. We hope that our technology will be the infrastructure rails that empower global markets connectivity and sustainability. More broadly, we hope to support Singapore’s position as a world’s financial network and hub for innovation and technological transformation.”
