Hedgehog crypto platform collaborates with FTSE Russell


The Hedgehog crypto platform now features Stacks that aim to track the FTSE Russell Digital Asset Indexes. 

Hedgehog writes that it is proud to collaborate with FTSE Russell, part of LSEG (London Stock Exchange Group), enabling rigorous industry intelligence to investors worldwide. The Digital Asset Indexes unite TradFi reliability with crypto’s cutting-edge experimentation, the firm writes: “Hedgehog’s suite of portfolio management tools enables crypto investors to take advantage of FTSE Russell’s Indexes with just a few clicks with the reassurance they are underpinned by robust governance and comprehensive data.”

Colton Dillion, CEO at Hedgehog, says: “Savvy crypto consumers are clamouring for exposure to high quality asset baskets with a trustworthy selection methodology and low management overhead. Hedgehog is pleased to employ the golden standard set by the FTSE Russell indices and make these direct indexing products available to institutions and retail in the US.”

Kristen Mierzwa, Head of Digital Assets, at FTSE Russell, says: “It’s great to be working with Hedgehog and enabling their clients to add FTSE Digital Asset Indexes, in association with Digital Asset Research, to their investment portfolios. These flagship indices offer institutional quality, liquidity-screened exposure to digital assets, segmented by circulating weight. FTSE Russell has taken a measured approach to this frontier investment space and has built a rigorous and transparent framework, to meet investor needs.”
