Use Crypto Holdings Data to Better Manage Risk.
Cryptocurrencies, despite their volatility, have become commonplace in the portfolios of both retail and institutional investors. More and more securities have crypto holdings. But do you fully understand how much exposure you really have to crypto?
A wide host of market participants rely on our crypto holdings data to better manage risk. Cryptocurrencies can be very volatile. So even if a fund or equity does not seem very volatile, due to its crypto holdings it may represent more risk than they realize.
Crypto Holdings and Price Correlation Data.
Built from a daily screening for securities that hold or track digital assets or futures we calculate the ratio and amount of digital asset holdings by security along with the level of price correlation between an exposed security and Bitcoin/Ethereum.
There are several steps in the process to create the final data set:
- Gathering of reference data on cryptos, crypto futures, crypto indices, and crypto-exposed equities
- Categorization of equities by “exposure type” in the crypto ecosystem (e.g. blockchain, mining, hardware, etc.)
- Qualitative weighting of equities’ exposure to the crypto ecosystem (e.g. minimal = 0.01, significant = 0.1, comprehensive = 1)
- Gathering holdings data for exposed securities (ETFs, ETNs, UITs, mutual funds, listed equities)
- Calculating weighted exposure for each holding and fund
We apply this process global securities, including:
- Exchange-traded funds (ETFs)
- Exchange-traded notes (ETNs)
- Unit investment trusts (UITs)
- Mutual funds
- Listed equities
