The partnership announcement marks that Santiago Stock Exchange being the first stock market in Latin America to integrate IBM blockchain solution within its short selling system for securities lending solution. The blockchain solution that is built by IBM and Chile’s Santiago Exchange, is designed to help reduce errors, possible fraud, and processing time for each transaction, while also improving transaction management and lowering costs, the announcement said.

Santiago Exchange is a pioneer in its industry, and the Blockchain adoption establishes a transformational precedent in the financial market, not just in Chile but in the region and the world,” Francisco Thiermann, IBM Chile General Manager, remarked.
