Luxembourg-based financial services company Banking Circle has partnered with Ant Group to work on a new liquidity management project.


Specifically, Banking Circle has announced a collaboration with Ant Group to develop a liquidity management project focused on technology innovations related to tokenised deposits. The initiative aims to enhance the efficiency and speed of global fund settlements. 

The partnership utilises Banking Circle's infrastructure and Ant Group's blockchain platform to issue and distribute tokenised deposits. The blockchain platform is designed to facilitate cross-border payments and improve liquidity management. 

According to Banking Circle, in addition to the liquidity management advantages, the structure is Web3 compatible, offering potential cost-saving opportunities with the inclusion of foreign exchange (FX) and additional currencies in the near future. 

In the company press release, officials from Banking Circle expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, emphasising the companies' commitment to pioneering innovations in global treasury management. The collaboration is expected to continue, strengthening the relationship between the two entities on a global scale. 

Representatives from Ant Group highlighted the partnership's focus on technology innovations for tokenisation. They also outlined the joint effort's objective to enhance liquidity efficiency and corporate treasury management while supporting the development of scalable and sustainable FinTech solutions.
