Fnality International has been founded to create a network of decentralised Financial Market Infrastructures (dFMIs) to deliver the means of payment-on-chain in tomorrow’s wholesale banking markets.

Fnality, backed by a consortium of Financial Institutions, including many of the Globally Systemically Important Banks (GSIBs), who sponsored the “USC Project” believe that there will be widespread adoption of tokenisation, both for new and for existing assets, creating new Value Chains. A means of payment is an essential need for those Value Chains.

The shareholders of Fnality comprise: Banco Santander, Bank of New York Mellon, Barclays, CIBC, Commerzbank, Credit Suisse, ING, KBC Group, Lloyds Banking Group, Mizuho Bank, MUFG Group, Nasdaq, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, State Street Bank & Trust, and UBS. Clearmatics continues in its role as the technology partner to Fnality.
