Engineering a smarter financial world

Tokenovate is a UK-based financial services technology company providing distributed financial market infrastructure, including tokenisation and blockchain-powered smart contracts, enabling post-trade lifecycle event management of workflows for OTC and exchange traded derivatives.
What we do

Distributed financial market infrastructure

Derivatives are used for price and risk management of physical and cash settled assets. These assets often flow within their individual supply chains and novate through multiple contractual, technical and commercial states, resulting in fragmented data and workflow siloes. Tokenovate combines programmable software that controls all events and responses with a highly scalable and cost efficient distributed ledger technology (DLT) to unify and automate the end-to-end derivative trade events lifecycle. Tokenovate builds on ISDA® CDM™ and accelerates the digitisation and automation of smart digital contracts.
Tokenovate is building the next generation distributed financial market infrastructure, optimised for asset class agnostic derivatives. We are designing, developing and delivering a secure and scalable cloud-based software platform that upgrades and automates the 
management of trading lifecycle events through tokenisation and blockchain-powered smart contracts, from asset sourcing, custody and settlement to asset servicing and reporting.
The Platform
Our platform is a secure, scalable and modular multi-tenant cloud-based software solution that integrates with existing infrastructure to deliver continuous improvements.

How we do it

Driving innovation, not disruption

The transformation journey to upgrade current financial market infrastructure is not about disrupting the existing model - it’s about continuous and iterative innovation. And during this process, it’s essential to fully respect the legal and economic contexts and fuse them with smart technology.

At Tokenovate, we support this journey by combining four key components:
Smart Contracts
Script-based conditional logic statements that execute automatically, reducing errors drastically.
Embedding industry standards through CDM, to ensure consistency & compliance.
DLT will become critical infrastructure, increasing transparency and operational efficiency.
Modular architecture delivers performance, robust security and scalable solutions.
