Problem Statement

Banks in the space of corporate risk sell down face several risks that can impact their operations, profitability, and reputation. One of the main risks is the possibility of significant losses due to credit defaults or market volatility.

Additionally, these banks may face legal and regulatory risks, including non-compliance with anti-money laundering and other financial regulations. There is also a risk of reputational damage due to negative publicity or customer dissatisfaction, which can lead to loss of business and market share.

Furthermore, banks in the space of corporate risk sell down may face operational risks such as errors in data processing or system failures. Overall, effective risk management strategies are critical for these banks to minimize these risks and ensure long-term success.


The International Commercial Bank implemented a blockchain-based solution that leverages a distributed ledger to digitize the process for risk distribution.

By implementing this solution, the bank was able to streamline the process and reduce the risk associated with traditional paper-based processes.

The distributed ledger allows for secure, transparent and tamper-proof record-keeping, which ensures that all parties have access to the same information, reducing the likelihood of errors and fraud. Additionally, the solution offers real-time monitoring of transactions, allowing for faster identification and resolution of potential issues.

Ultimately, the blockchain-based solution has helped the bank to improve its efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance its risk management capabilities.

We are freed by blockchain system. Risk sell down is all about managing trade risks on Letter of Credit confirmations with customers. This was a cumbersome process for three teams in three different locations working on excel and email. The dlt Platform helped with collaborative participation of various users both internal and external to the bank with a single source of truth and immutable audit trails.”
