Vinter, the crypto index provider, announces that it has partnered with digital asset brokerage K33 to build regulated financial products for their portfolio of upcoming investment products. Vinter’s indexes will serve as the reference rates for these products, as K33 – formerly known as Arcane Crypto (“Arcane”) – seeks to provide a rule-based and transparent way for investors to track the value of their portfolios.

The partnership will commence with the launch of the K33 Vinter Quality Index. The index is an equal-weighted index of crypto assets that are qualitatively evaluated from an investor’s standpoint; offering high-quality assets with a small probability of permanent financial loss. The index is rebalanced quarterly. Although all assets from the crypto ecosystem are eligible for selection, they must pass through a quality filter consisting of five key criteria:

  1. Persistent network effects.
  2. Use.
  3. Regulatory risk.
  4. Ecosystem size and liveness.
  5. Inflation schedule and ownership concentration.

Torbjørn Bull Jenssen, CEO of K33 comments:

“Our goal is to provide investors access to the crypto ecosystem through products that are backed by our expertise and research in the industry. Vinter was a natural choice when looking for an index provider to help launch some of our investment products; they have an excellent track record in providing the most reliable and accurate data, and Jacob and his team are experts in their field. We look forward to working with them as we meet the growing demands of clients and fund managers and continue to strengthen our position in the EMEA.”

Jacob Lindberg, CEO of Vinter, adds:

“We are pleased to be partnering with K33 as their preferred index provider. Arcane – the precursor to K33 – is globally renowned for their high-quality research. I learn something new about crypto every time I speak with Torbjørn or read their research. As the index provider of choice, Vinter will help them leverage this research to offer investors interesting exposures. Our crypto quality index is the perfect way to start our partnership.”
