Talking Tech: The EU Pilot Regime – unlocking the Digital Capital Markets

Innovation is an essential component of the financial markets. In recent years, one of the main focuses of innovation has been the use of distributed ledger technology (DLT), which is a revolutionary way of storing data. From 23 March 2023, for an initial three-year period, operators of DLT Market infrastructures will be given the opportunity to experiment with the use of DLT in issuance and post-trade processes under the EU Pilot Regime, free from certain regulatory constraints.

This is expected to increase the volume of issuances of financial instruments that are issued, recorded, transferred and stored using DLT in Europe. Who can benefit from the EU Pilot Regime? And how could it affect the digital capital markets?

Following our latest European Capital Markets Client Briefing on the EU Pilot Regime, podcast host and counsel Alexander Tollast will discuss these and many more questions together with Elise Soucie (Associate Director, AFME), Laurence Arnold (Head of Innovation Management and Strategic Initiatives, AXA Investment Managers) and Stéphane Blemus (Secretary General, Société Générale – FORGE; Post-doctoral Researcher, Copenhagen University) in this podcast episode.
