STOXX Ltd., part of the ISS STOXX GmbH group of companies and a leading provider of benchmark and custom index solutions to global institutional investors, has licensed the STOXX Digital Asset Blue Chip Index to Valour Inc. The index, which marks STOXX’s entry into the digital asset space, will serve as an underlying for an exchange traded product (ETP) listed on Xetra, a leading trading venue for ETFs & ETPs in Europe. The index was developed in partnership with crypto-financial services provider Bitcoin Suisse.

“Investors are clearly allocating significantly more to alternative asset classes to diversify their portfolios,” said Axel Lomholt, General Manager at STOXX. “That’s why we are moving into an investment segment that’s increasingly gaining a foothold in portfolios. With Bitcoin Suisse, we do this with an established partner and with an index methodology designed to meet the robustness needs of today’s investors.”

The STOXX Digital Asset Blue Chip Index tracks a diversified and high-quality basket of assets, utilizing crypto-native metrics to select those which serve as a reflection of the crypto universe today. The list of eligible tokens is derived from all assets classified under the Bitcoin Suisse Global Crypto Taxonomy (GCT). Selection is based on a multi-step procedure which seeks to identify the strongest and most representative assets in each eligible sector. A market capitalization weighting scheme with a cap of 30 percent limits exposure to typically dominant tokens such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.

“With its maximum weighting limit of 30 percent for any individual crypto underlying, the new ETP is as unique vehicle to enter into the crypto world with just one position in your portfolio,” said Marco Infuso, Chief Sales Officer of Valour.

“With the launch of this unique blue chip crypto index in collaboration with STOXX, we are taking the next step in the development of our digital assets offering,” said Andrej Majcen, Chief Executive Officer at Bitcoin Suisse. “With its rule-based asset selection, the STOXX Digital Asset Blue Chip Index is Europe’s first investment alternative to pure top market cap crypto asset strategies. Bitcoin Suisse is proud to partner with STOXX to drive innovation further in the crypto- and traditional space.”
