RDC: A First-of-Its-Kind Depositary Receipts Platform

Since 1927, depositary receipts (DRs) have evolved to enable foreign equities, debt and commodities to transact, clear and settle just like domestic securities. Today, we’re using DRs to enable institutions to own digital and alternative assets just as easily.
