S&P Dow Jones Indices partners with Lukka to build crypto indexing capabilities

RELATED TOPICS​

Index provider S&P Dow Jones Indices is partnering with Lukka, a New York City-based crypto asset software and data company to launch global cryptocurrency asset indexes.S&P DJI will provide S&P DJI-branded and customised indexing and benchmarking solutions supported by Lukka’s proprietary crypto asset pricing data. 

As the market for cryptocurrency assets has evolved in recent years, investor interest in benchmarking and index-based solutions based on crypto and blockchain assets has grown and reinforced the need for reliable pricing data. S&P DJI is utilising a variety of Lukka’s aggregated data services including Lukka Reference Data and Lukka Prime, the world’s first Fair Market Value-focused pricing methodology for crypto assets. 

These new cryptocurrency index capabilities will make it easier for investors to access this emerging technology-driven asset class while potentially mitigating some of the common risks associated with this traditionally speculative market. S&P DJI’s well-established index governance and independence can provide diversified exposure from a series of branded and custom indices supported by Lukka’s institutional quality data.

“For more than a century, S&P Dow Jones Indices has been a pioneer in creating innovative and relevant indices and benchmarks that reflect the global market’s ongoing growth and evolution,” says Peter Roffman, Global Head of Innovation and Strategy at S&P Dow Jones Indices. “With digital assets such as cryptocurrencies becoming a rapidly emerging asset class, the time is right for independent, reliable and user-friendly benchmarks. We’re excited to work with Lukka, who has been at the forefront of digital asset data services, to promote more transparency in this nascent sector.”

“Our collaboration with S&P DJI is yet another milestone that bridges the gap between the crypto asset ecosystem and traditional financial services,” says Robert Materazzi, CEO of Lukka. “Customers with crypto data requirements will soon have access to the most trusted data in the industry underpinned by Lukka’s institutional-quality standards, such as AICPA SOC Controls. In a rapidly maturing industry, it is paramount to build to institutional standards when working with highly respected brands, such as S&P DJI. Lukka is thrilled to help drive ongoing innovation in collaboration with S&P DJI.”
