The Role of a Phuture Index

How Phuture supports the growth of index products.

Index investing is a cornerstone of traditional asset management and the top index providers have accumulated trillion-dollar AUMs. It is estimated that nearly 50% of the value in the U.S. stock market is held by index funds.

With crypto markets developing it is highly probable that asset and strategy allocation will begin to converge with traditional finance. Phuture’s index platform stands to benefit from this influx of capital and its user friendly design will appease both crypto natives as well as users completely new to decentralised finance.

As the token economy expands and becomes more diverse, participants will want products that can provide them with diversified exposure to these different sectors. Sector specific indices will become the schelling point for benchmarking performance. Phuture's index creation tools allows its portfolio of indices to grow with the market, easily supporting new sectors as they are defined.

However, token economies are unlike their traditional counterparts in the sense that token holders take a more active role in the decision making process. In line with this ideology, Phuture will support active participation in the governance of the tokens it custodies. Additionally, Phuture will minimise opportunity cost by leveraging off-platform yield optimisers.
