Clifford Chance, ISDA and R3 panel discussion: Smart Derivatives

ISDA, Clifford Chance, R3 and the Singapore Academy of Law, have recently published a joint white paper on the private international law aspects of smart derivatives contracts utilizing distributed ledger technology.

To mark the release of the paper, we are hosting a reception and panel discussion. The panel discussion will raise the specific private international law issues raised in the white paper when trading derivatives in a DLT environment and the recommendations on how these issues might be clarified or resolved. The panel will also highlight two different examples of derivatives transactions, both of which use ISDA documentation and are implemented on Corda, an open-source blockchain and smart contract platform developed by R3 LLC. The panel will be followed by a drinks reception.

In Conversation with Huw van Steenis

Clifford Chance is delighted to welcome Huw van Steenis. Huw's recent review of the future of the financial system for the Bank of England showed that he is one of the leading thinkers in the world on where the financial system goes next – from technology and data regulation to climate change and cyber attacks.

Clifford Chance partner Simon Gleeson will be in conversation with Huw, discussing topics such as the future of money and payments, whether the current bank business model is sustainable, how finance might be raised in the future, and how the interaction between the internet giants and the financial system might play out.
