The Consequences of Atomic Settlement

Wednesday 6th December | 2 pm


| Dirk Bullmann ( Global Head of Public Policy, CLS)

In this session of the Payment Systes Broadcast, Dirk Bullman cuts through the noise to make sense of what atomic settlement means and the benefits and drawbacks it offers as we ask whether molecular settlement could provide a solution that balances speed and liquidity needs.
