Crypto coins and judge hammer

The Financial Times has launched Cryptofinance, a new digital hub and weekly newsletter aimed at shining a light on the digital asset industry and how innovations are rippling into mainstream finance.

All FT crypto coverage will be found there, including long format profiles of crypto’s biggest players and opinion pieces from commentators navigating the uncharted waters of crypto policy and regulation.

Scott Chipolina will be the face of the weekly newsletter as FT’s digital assets correspondent and will be responsible to filter out the noise of the global cryptocurrency industry in order to focus on the most critical insight.

FT partnership with Wilshire continues

FT launched the Digital Assets Dashboard as part of an ongoing partnership with trading company Wilshire. In February, the collaboration resulted in new tools and content that range from ESG to “new digital financial instruments”.

The dedicated services and features include several indices, metrics, data sets, and analytics for investors, and follows the recent launch of the ETF Hub, also available on FT.com. The ETF Hub was developed in partnership with TrackInsight and covers the fast growing $8tn Exchange Traded Funds sector with news, data, and analytics.

Wilshire owns the renowned Wilshire 5000, the oldest measure of the total US equity market. Under the partnership with Financial Times, the index was enhanced, expanded, and relaunched as the FT Wilshire 5000 US Series.

The index industry grew 11% per annum between 2015 and 2019, into a $3.7 billion market in 2019, according to Wilshire. The industry is expected to see future growth driven from unique index designs and customized solutions into segments such as ESG and a greater focus on alternative asset classes and multi-asset products.
