Grayscale Investments, the world’s largest digital currency asset manager, announced its first European ETF, Grayscale Future of Finance UCITS ETF (ticker: GFOF), which will list on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), Borsa Italiana and Deutsche Börse Xetra. GFOF will also be passported for sale across Europe.

GFOF tracks the investment performance of the Bloomberg Grayscale Future of Finance Index and seeks to offer investors exposure to companies at the intersection of finance, technology, and digital assets – companies that are building the digital economy – all through the familiar ETF wrapper. In February 2022, Grayscale listed an ETF in the United States that tracks the investment performance of the Bloomberg Grayscale Future of Finance Index.

The Bloomberg Grayscale Future of Finance Index comprises companies representing three “Future of Finance” pillars: 

Financial Foundations – asset managers, exchanges, brokerages, and wealth managers involved in the enablement of the digital economy
Technology Solutions – organizations providing the technology to facilitate the digital economy through data and processing
Digital Asset Infrastructure – includes companies directly involved in mining, energy management, and activities that power the digital asset ecosystem

We announced our first ETF earlier this year in partnership with Bloomberg as part of the expansion of our business. With growing global demand from both institutional and individual investors for Grayscale products, we’re thrilled to be expanding our offering in Europe through the UCITS wrapper,” said Grayscale Investments CEO Michael Sonnenshein. “This product draws upon our historical strengths, while furthering our evolution as an asset manager that helps investors build portfolios that can stand the test of time. GFOF is the natural next step in our global strategic journey.
