FCA joins forces with global regulators to foster digital innovation with Project Guardian

We are partnering with regulators across the world as part of the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS) Project Guardian, a collaborative initiative with the financial industry that explores fund and asset tokenisation use cases, and decentralised finance.

The FCA joins MAS, Singapore’s central bank, the Financial Services Agency of Japan (FSA), and the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) as part of the project.

The project aims to share knowledge and examine the benefits, regulatory challenges, and commercial use cases of asset and fund tokenisation.

Sarah Pritchard, Executive Director of Markets and International at FCA, said: 'We are pleased to join Project Guardian. The UK’s asset management sector – which is the second largest in the world – sees significant potential in the use of distributed ledger technology to drive innovations, efficiencies, and enhanced value for customers.

'We look forward to working with our global partners to examine the market benefits, regulatory challenges, and industry use cases of asset and fund tokenisation.'
