Case studies

Aligning sustainable investment objectives across asset classes

As a signatory to the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a leading asset owner engaged FTSE Russell to create custom SDG-aligned benchmarks for their equity and fixed income portfolios, aligning their sustainable investment objectives across asset classes.

Collaborating on the development of Digital Asset indices

FTSE Russell developed three new custom digital asset indices to meet our client’s needs, providing a bespoke methodology tailored to their tradeability parameters.
