Bloomberg and Grayscale Launch Future of Finance Index

Bloomberg and Grayscale Investments today announced the launch of the Bloomberg Grayscale Future of Finance Index, tracking the rapidly evolving digital economy – specifically the confluence of technology, finance, and digital assets.

The index is built using Bloomberg Intelligence’s proprietary theme basket methodology, coupling a rigorous data-driven and transparent build process with the market expertise of Bloomberg and Grayscale. It includes companies that Bloomberg Intelligence analysts have projected will contribute significantly to the growth of the digital economy and its overall revenue within the next two years. Companies that represent the “Future of Finance” in the final basket are categorized by three key pillars: financial foundations, digital asset infrastructure, and technology solutions. Concretely, this may include payments, exchange, asset management, hardware, blockchain/tech, or miners.

"As transformative technologies continue to develop and revolutionize financial markets, we expect investor interest in those innovations will increase rapidly,"

said Dave Gedeon, Global Head of Multi-Asset Indices at Bloomberg.

"With the launch of the Bloomberg Grayscale Future of Finance Index, investors now have a best-in-class benchmark to measure the performance of their current and potential investments in the space."

The index currently tracks 22 companies and will be rebalanced quarterly. Bloomberg clients can access the index using the ticker BGFOF Index and access historical data through December 2020.

"The Bloomberg Grayscale Future of Finance Index was uniquely designed as the first structure leveraging analyst oversight to track companies and technologies shaping the future of financial services,"

said Michael Sonnenshein, CEO of Grayscale.

"We're excited to partner with Bloomberg for the launch of this future-forward index, offering investors a seamless way to track the advancements of companies that are building the infrastructure underpinning our digital economy."
