Today, Bloomberg has partnered with a crypto investment firm, Grayscale, to launch an exchange-traded fund (ETF). This launch is a welcome development to Grayscale as it dives into the digital economy.
The ETF launched by Grayscale is called GFOF (Grayscale Future of Finance). It will help to track the performance of Bloomberg’s GFOF index. The fund was created because the organization believes in the digital economy. The digital economy will massively increase commerce worldwide, provide new capital opportunities, and remove the need for mediators.
The distributor of the ETFs will be Foreside and US Bank will perform administrative duties and service provision
Details Of The Partnership
According to a leader at Bloomberg, David Gedeon, they are happy to work with Grayscale and have the benchmark that would help the asset manager achieve its goal. This was made known in a press statement from Grayscale. Using the proprietary data from Grayscale and voluminous research from Bloomberg Intelligence, both companies want the Bloomberg GFOF index to become a standard in the ever-increasing digital economy.
Although ETH and BTC-based ETF began in Canada, crypto ETFs are currently making the waves in the United States. Crypto ETFs started gaining momentum after the approval of the United States of America Securities Exchange Commission on the Proshares ETF that is based on Bitcoin. This approval was given in October 2021.
Proshare’s ETF had the biggest exchange-traded fund in history. This result showed considerable anticipation of ETFs in the United States.
The Exchange-traded Funds composition of the top ten companies shows trading firms taking most of the ETF. Companies like PayPal, Coinbase, and Robinhood accounted for more than 24%. The index of Bloomberg is centered on organizations that represent the three pillars of “Future of Finance.”
The three pillars are; financial foundations, Technological solutions, and Infrastructure for digital assets.
According to the official in charge of ETF at Grayscale, David LaValle, the organization is happy to have launched their ETF, which will enable them to increase their investment portfolio and meet the demands of investors.
One ETF is trading at about $24 with net assets of about $3 million and 125,000 outstanding shares.
As of October 2021, Grayscale investment company had about $55 billion worth of AUM (Assets Under Management). This made Grayscale the largest digital investment manager in the world. Presently, the product suite of the investment firm covers 70% of the world’s digital assets.
