New York-based Digital Asset Holdings, a developer of distributed ledger technology (aka blockchain), has teamed up with Accenture, Broadridge and PwC.

Digital Asset says it has entered into non-exclusive strategic business relationships with the companies, and Blythe Masters, CEO of Digital Asset, says the alliances will “accelerate innovation” and “drive growth”.

The Accenture relationship will provide consulting and systems integration services for clients through collaboration on blockchain-related work at global financial institutions.

Broadridge will provide the resources to identify, develop and drive adoption of “innovative” business use cases. Digital Asset will be able to use Broadridge’s post-trade managed services, infrastructure and cyber security capabilities.

With the PwC partnership, it will focus on taking PwC’s recently released blockchain portfolio and align the services around Digital Asset’s solutions and delivery model.

Owen Jelf, MD of Accenture’s global capital markets practice, says: “Developing and implementing the technology on an industrial scale is the next step.”

Haskell Garfinkel, partner, fintech co-leader at PwC, says blockchain can “solve the most complex problems businesses face at speeds and costs not yet imagined”.
