Credit Suisse, Banco Best Processed Fund Transfer using Blockchain

Credit Suisse Asset Management and Banco Best, a Portuguese financial institution, successfully processed live end-to-end fund transactions on the blockchain-based decentralized platform, FundsDLT, according to a press release.

The Fund Transaction

The use of a blockchain based platform brings its obvious characteristics such as improved efficiency, scalability, security, transparency and faster processing. The processed transactions included all phases of the fund trade process from the real world that includes delivery of the order until the processing of the trade.

According to the announcement, Banco Best created a client-facing app and developed API integration with the FundsDLT platform to better understand the impact on overall client experience. The outcome was a substantial reduction in time between request and settlement order.

This proof of concept also makes Credit Suisse Fund Services (Luxembourg) SA one of the first asset servicing providers to process a full end-to-end fund transaction using blockchain, integrated within its core platforms.
