#dltledgers ?

Traditional Trade & Supply Chain processes struggle with a lack of transparency, visibility & adequate risk-monitoring, in-turn driving a financing gap between capital starved institutions and banks. Covid-19 has accelerated the widening of this inter-entreprise gap amidst a change in deep-tier financing demands from both institutions and banks.

#dltledgers is an integrated digital solution that delivers transparency, visibility & adequate risk-monitoring in real-time is the need of the hour to address financing disequilibria. An extended solution with regulatory participation will close the loop, significantly improving the ability to detect & prevent double financing & other fraudulent activities.

Headquartered out of Singapore, a global commodities trading hub, favourable government policy & the concentration of trade flows has enabled us to scale and grow across the APAC region. With a strong sales pipeline well into 2021, we are currently in the process of ramping up our sales, engineering & customer success teams. Lead by an experienced founder and a seasoned leadership team, we are looking to scale and expand globally.Since the first transaction went live in early 2018, over $3 billion worth of live trade finance transactions has been executed via the platform involving 400+ traders, 65+ banks and tertiary partners. A key driver to this success has been our ability to use technology to reduce trade execution times from 45+ days to a matter of hours reducing operational overhead and improving working capital lifecycle by 15-20%.Our clients are mainly large international trading firms, large corporates, supply chain firms and banks. A few of our growing set of key customers are Mitsui, Agrocorp, Shiseido, Wipro Unza, IFFCO and ANZ bank amongst others.

Our Board of Directors 

Our Board of directors is collectively responsible for our long-term success, and for ensuring that #dltledgers is led within a framework of effective controls. A company of our size along with its rapid growth must have strong governance, as well as leaders who understand our diverse consumers and global needs. The current composition of the Board reflects an appropriate mix of skill sets, experience, and qualifications that are relevant to the business and governance of the Company. 

The Board’s responsibilities are active, not passive, and include the responsibility to evaluate the strategic direction of #dltledgers, its management policies, and the effectiveness of the implementation of such by the management on a regular basis. It is the responsibility of the members of the Board to act in good faith and with due care, so as to exercise their business judgment on an informed basis, in a manner that they reasonably and honestly believe to be in the best interests of #dltledgers and its shareholders.
