Last week, Morgan Stanley published a research report on the growth of crypto exchange-traded products (ETPs). The report noted that there are now more than 180 crypto ETPs and trust products globally and predicted the number of these products will continue to grow.
Morgan Stanley’s research team also noted that the current crypto winter “hasn’t deterred asset managers and financial companies from launching ways for their clients to get access to digital assets.''
In addition to the report supporting our belief that crypto investment products will continue to become a more permanent fixture in investment portfolios, it also highlighted Hashdex as a top crypto ETP provider, a list that included crypto-native firms as well as traditional asset managers like Fidelity, Invesco, and VanEck. The report showed that Hashdex is the 12th largest crypto ETP provider in the world, with the fifth-most product offerings available to global investors.
Morgan Stanley also highlighted that the Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index ETF (HASH11), which trades on Brazil’s B3 exchange, has seen the third-most inflows for crypto ETPs in 2022.
Despite bear market conditions, this year has been an important one for the development of crypto investment products. In the first half of 2022, Hashdex led our peers in raising assets for multi-asset crypto ETPs and we remain optimistic that this demand will persist even as the environment for risk assets remains challenging.
Morgan Stanley’s report is both a sign of the ongoing institutional interest in crypto and a recognition of the growing demand from investors regulated crypto investment products. We’re proud of the trust investors across the globe have placed in us, and remain committed to providing innovative investors simple and secure access to the rapidly developing crypto ecosystem.

It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Exposure to an asset class represented by an index is available through investable instruments based on that index. The Issuer makes no assurance that investment products based on the index will accurately track index performance or provide positive investment returns. The Issuer is not an investment advisor and makes no representation regarding the advisability of investing in any such investment product or other investment vehicle. A decision to invest in any such investment product or other investment vehicle should not be made in reliance on any of the statements set forth on this website. Prospective investors are advised to make an investment in any such product or other vehicle only after carefully considering the risks associated with investing in such products, as detailed in an offering memorandum or similar document that is prepared by or on behalf of the issuer of the investment product or other investment vehicle. The Issuer is not a tax advisor. A tax advisor should be consulted to evaluate the impact and consequences of making any particular investment decision. Inclusion of any assets within an index is not a recommendation by the Issuer to buy, sell, or hold such security, nor is it considered to be investment advice.

Investments into crypto currencies and/or digital assets are subject to material and high risk including the risk of total loss. The calculated prices may not be achieved by investors as the calculated price is based on prices from different trading platforms. Furthermore, an investment into crypto currencies and/or digital assets may become illiquid depending on the trading platform or investment product used for the specific investment. Investors should carefully review all risk factors disclosed by the relevant trading platform or in the product documents of relevant investment products.
Charts and graphs are provided for illustrative purposes. Past performance is not an indication or guarantee of future results. The charts and graphs may reflect hypothetical historical performance. All information presented prior to the launch date is back-tested (simulated past performance). Back-tested performance is not actual performance, but is hypothetical. The back-test calculations are based on the same methodology that was in effect when the index(es) was officially launched. It is not possible to invest directly in any index. Prospective application of the methodology used to construct the index(es) as well as revisions to economic data may not result in performance commensurate with the back-test returns shown. The back-test period does not necessarily correspond to the entire available history of the index(es). Another limitation of using back-tested information is that the back-tested calculation is generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. Back-tested data and/or information reflects the application of the index methodology and selection of index constituents in hindsight. No hypothetical record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, there are numerous factors related to the equities, fixed income, or commodities markets in general which cannot be, and have not been accounted for in the preparation of the index information set forth, all of which can affect actual performance. The index returns shown do not represent the results of actual trading of investable assets.
