ASFA Unpacks: Blockchain for super

Melbourne: 28 March | Sydney: 29 March

Speaker presentations

 Reflections by David Braga

 Smart Contracts by Scott Farrell

Info

This event lifts the lid on blockchain and its potential impact on the whole of the financial sector value chain.

At this point in time, we are only scratching the surface on the value and use of blockchain in superannuation, but given its impact elsewhere on the financial system, it’s only prudent for funds to start considering the potential impact that this distributed ledger technology may have on their business.

Over the last few years, the superannuation industry has invested heavily in its back office processes to become more efficient in dealing with its day-to-day transactions, processing and data storage. Yet, the implementation and ongoing compliance with SuperStream and Single Touch Payroll, plus the potential impact of the New Payments Platform that is being championed by the banks and other new technologies such as blockchain, will continue to challenge the industry.

Attendees will hear how this distributed ledger technology is being used within capital markets, how this impacts the significant roles that custodians play in our system and what role smart digital contracts will have along the way. The event will be rounded out by focusing on the potential impact of blockchain on recently implemented transaction networks.

This event is a must for those needing to understand and appreciate the emerging technology of blockchain.
