We exist to enable an open, trusted and enduring digital economy
R3 is leading the future of digital finance by powering multi-party solutions that deliver digital trust and unlock greater potential for regulated businesses everywhere.
Trust that ‘what you see is what I see’
In 2014, David E. Rutter, Todd McDonald and Jesse Edwards founded R3 with the belief that direct, digital collaboration was the future of financial services. The ‘what you see is what I see’ foundational principle has only grown in importance with the acceleration of not just digital finance, but of everything.
Less centralized, more connected
As financial services veterans, David and Todd knew first-hand that there was a lack of trust in how financial institutions collaborated and transacted with each other, and their customers. They believed that if these organizations were less centralized and more connected, financial markets—and other regulated industries—could run far more efficiently and effectively.
Passion to drive distributed ledger technology forward
The R3 team developed Corda—the world’s first native private, permissioned DLT platform that is not only secure and regulatory-compliant by design, but has facilitated hundreds of networks across financial services.
How the story unfolded
Our story today
R3 is a leading provider of enterprise technology and services that enable the secure exchange of value in regulated industries where trust is critical. Multi-party solutions developed on our platform Corda harness the “Power of 3″—R3’s distributed trust technology, connected networks and regulated markets expertise—to drive transformation in digital finance.
As one of the first companies to deliver a private, permissioned distributed ledger technology (DLT) application platform, R3’s Corda empowers regulated institutions to realize the full potential of direct digital collaboration. We maintain one of the largest DLT ecosystems in the world connecting over 400 institutions, including global systems integrators, cloud providers, technology firms, software vendors, corporates, regulators, and financial services firms from the public and private sectors.
