NEW YORK, June 14, 2018 /CNW/ -- DelphX Capital Markets Inc. (DELX.V) ("DelphX") is pleased to report that it is receiving overwhelmingly positive responses from fixed income investors following the unveiling of its new risk-mitigating securities and coming Alternative Trading system ("ATS") at the Fixed Income Leaders Summit conference in Boston last week. At that premier event, more than 800 credit market professionals were offered an exclusive preview of the unique DelphX ATS and its privately-placed Quantem™ securities.
"In an industry where change is measured in small increments, attendees describing our new securities as a 'breakthrough' exceeded even our greatest expectations," declared DelphX CEO, Larry Fondren. "We were delighted to demonstrate the advantages of our CDS-alternative solution to some of the world's foremost credit investors. Our entire team would also like to thank the many conference attendees who took the time to learn our story and make this event such a success."
The Summit enabled DelphX to create awareness at every level of the credit market community, including among potential platform partners.
"DelphX could be a real game changer for the credit markets and give trading desks the ability to adroitly hedge risk once again," observed Steven Roe, CEO of West Highland Support Services, the leading provider of data services to buyside and sellside firms for over 20 years.
DelphX is a technology company focused on optimizing fixed income markets around the world by transforming the way credit capital is secured. It is developing a blockchain-powered solution employing proprietary distributed ledger technology and actuarial science to facilitate broad diffusion of credit default risks. The new DelphX alternative trading system ("ATS") market will be regulated by the SEC and operated by DelphX Services Corporation, a FINRA member firm, to facilitate the negotiation, purchase and trading of two new forms of Smart Contract securities:
Covered Put Option (CPO) securities that provide secured default protection for U.S. dollar-denominated corporate, municipal and sovereign securities, with each CPO strike-price equaling the par value of its underlying security; and
Covered Reference Note (CRN) securities that allow investors to take on exposure to the default risk of a single underlying security or to participate in a pool of diverse risks that broadly diffuses the impact of credit events among all participants.
All CPO and CRN securities will be issued by Quantem Capital Corporation Ltd.("Quantem"), a Bermuda-domiciled subsidiary of DelphX, and transparently administered within Quantem's immutable Distributed Ledger. A traditional book-entry record of each security will also be maintained in parallel by Quantem's issuing and paying agent to provide additional transparency and efficiency.
DelphX is headquartered in the U.S., with locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and its development operations are located in the Kitchener-Waterloo ("Silicon Valley North") region of Canada.
