Electronic (Paperless) Trading-Update to E-TITLE-Cancellation of R3 ownership

26 May 2022 No.22-002

E-TITLE retains ownership

Members are referred to our Circular No.21-008 dated 24 September 2021.


The Club had previously notified Members of the change in ownership of E-TITLE electronic trading system and its underlying legal framework to R3. Members were also notified of the following:


  • the change in trading name of the E-TITLE electronic trading system to Corda eBL; and
  • how the Corda eBL software was to operate.


The agreement between R3 and E-TITLE has dissolved, and ownership of the legal framework has reverted back to E-TITLE. In accordance with this change, the trading name will also revert back from Corda eBL to E-TITLE electronic trading system.


For the avoidance of doubt, the product which had been renamed Corda eBL has reverted to its original name, e-Title™ and therefore going forward anything named Corda eBL is no longer an approved system.


E-TITLE approved entity status retained

E-TITLE retains its approved status within the International Group. For further information on the system offered by E-TITLE, Members are referred to Circular No.15-010 dated 27 October 2015.


All clubs in the International Group have issued a similar circular.
