Leading Financial Services Vendors
Juniper assessed 19 blockchain vendors; scoring their level of agility, presence and innovation, the complexity of their blockchain solutions and prospects in the field. It ranked the 5 leading vendors in the space as follows:
IBM remains the indisputable leader in the space; having attracted dozens of clients in financial institutions and developed mature blockchain products, including a trade finance platform and bespoke work on areas ranging from securities digitisation to derivatives. Meanwhile, Infosys Finacle continues to develop its blockchain-agnostic solutions through its Blockchain Framework and Finacle Trade Connect; gaining a strong customer base among banks.
Smart Contracts at the Core of Blockchain’s Offering
Juniper found that smart contracts will be key for financial institutions, particularly in the context of increasing accuracy and transparency. This is exemplified by JP Morgan Chase’s use of smart contracts to reduce compliance costs via the Quorum platform, a distributed ledger transaction network built on Ethereum.
The research cited continually rising compliance costs, particularly in North American and West European markets, as critical drivers behind bank spend on innovative solutions such as smart contracts.
