DelphX is a technology and financial services company focused on optimizing fixed income markets. Its Cloud-based platform employs distributed ledger technology, actuarial science and reinsurance protocols to enable fixed income dealers to offer new Rule 144A securities that optimally diffuse credit risk. The new DelphX platform will be regulated by the SEC and enable dealers to competitively structure, sell and make markets in:
- Covered Put Options (CPOs) that provide secured default protection for underlying corporate, municipal and sovereign securities, with each CPO strike-price equaling the par value of its underlying security
- Covered Reference Notes (CRNs) that enable credit investors to take on the default exposure of a single underlying security or optionally participate in a pool of diversified risks that broadly diffuses the impact of credit events.
All CPOs and CRNs will be collateralized by investment grade assets held in custody by an independent custodian and transparently administered within DelphX’s immutable distributed ledger. A traditional book-entry record of each security will also be maintained in parallel by an independent issuing and paying agent to provide additional transparency and efficiency.
