FTSE Global Digital Asset Index Series: A new standard of measurement for the digital asset universe

There is rising demand for indices and data tools that help investors navigate the digital asset universe. Increasingly we hear from our clients about the need for digital asset indices with capabilities that include screening of the market with a transparent, rules-based methodology, the same broad universe of criteria applied to both exchanges and digital assets and support for the development of best practice in the market.

In this paper, we demonstrate how we are meeting investors’ needs through the introduction of our new FTSE Global Digital Asset Index Series, consisting of multi-asset indices that cover the broad digital asset universe, launched in association with Digital Asset Research. This index series offers a dependable standard of measurement providing index benefits, such as:

  • Transparency
  • Inclusivity
  • Capitalisation-weighting
  • Rigorous vetting and monitoring
  • Accuracy and reliability
  • Circulating weight adjustment
  • Buffering to reduce turnover
  • Professional index governance
