Enabling success through digital transformation in securitisation, credit, risk and funds management.
For the banking and financial services sector, today’s big challenges include: regulatory change, increasing cyber threats, expense management and the need to transition off expensive, high-risk legacy technology and manual spreadsheets. All these factors hinder financial institutions’ ability to scale efficiently, to reduce enterprise risk – and to grow.
Perpetual Digital is Perpetual Corporate Trust’s innovation company, leveraging more than 20 years of experience and a market leading position in Australian securitisation to deliver solutions to this sector. Our new digital solutions can enable your business to become more effective, efficient and achieve economies of scale, while reducing cyber risk and maintaining compliance through automation, workflow management and reporting.
We help our clients move away from legacy technology, manual processes and spreadsheets onto our cloud-based, Platform-as-a-Service which is integrated, evergreen and scalable. Together we can help accelerate your digital transformation strategy and enable your continued success.
Our innovative solutions
Since February 2020, Perpetual Corporate Trust (PCT) has been working with the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), Commonwealth Bank (CBA), National Australia Bank (NAB), ConsenSys Software (ConsenSys), on a collaborative project (Project Atom) to explore the potential use and implications of a wholesale form of central bank digital currency (CBDC) using distributed ledger technology (DLT) for the funding, settlement and repayment of a tokenised syndicated loan.
Perpetual Corporate Trust has been exploring blockchain and digital currencies since 2015, as we have seen a growing demand for digital finance to provide more efficient, cost-effective, transparent and secure payment and settlement solutions using blockchain technology. The RBA proof of concept research has demonstrated that significant operational efficiencies are possible, and we are further encouraged by this to deliver better outcomes to our clients and advance the industry in this area.
