HQLAX is a financial technology innovation firm that leverages R3’s distributed ledger technology, Corda, to deliver liquidity management and collateral management solutions for institutional clients in the global securities lending and repo markets. In March 2018, Deutsche Börse Group and HQLAX announced their collaboration in developing an innovative blockchain solution for collateral swaps in the securities lending market. The joint operating model aims to improve collateral mobility across a fragmented securities settlement ecosystem. Unlike in traditional settlement, there will be no actual movement of securities between custody accounts on the HQLAX target operating model. Instead, tokens will be transferred while the underlying securities will be kept off-blockchain and remain static. This helps market participants to manage collateral more efficiently by improving collateral fluidity across systems and locations. The platform will be accessed via Deutsche Börse’s Eurex Repo trading system. A trusted third party layer will be the interface between the distributed ledger technology (DLT) and legacy securities infrastructure, leveraging well-established triparty collateral management services.

Whether you will be reporting via IHS Markit/Pirum and Equilend/ Trax or another leading third party provider with whom we have full interoperability, whether you will adopt a delegated reporting model, prefer to be hands-on with your TR, or even a combination of all three, we have the technology and tools to support you all the way from submission to compliance.
