Who WE are

How can investors use DATS in their investment management operations?

Traditional and digital-native asset owners, product issuers, custodians and research service providers can license DATS for the same purposes as they would when adopting an equity or fixed income classification system:

Developing digital asset investment strategies and risk policies

Issuing index-linked products based on sector-themed indexes

Conducting performance attribution

Constructing custom digital asset portfolios


A robust sector taxonomy that covers the full universe of assets you are managing is essential for any institutional-grade risk system.
