In 2021, DAR and Wilshire entered into a partnership to jointly develop DATS. With Wilshire’s 50 year history in supporting institutional investors to gain access and clarity into new asset classes, the partnership would ensure that DATS became the leading taxonomy standard for Digital Assets. With the broadest coverage of any digital taxonomy system in the industry, DATS classify over 1,300 digital assets into super sectors, sectors, sub sectors, and multisector themes, DATS is the clear choice for institutional investors to identify sector based opportunities and assess risks in this emerging digital asset class.

You need tounderstand how the assets are performing; you may wish to use a factor risk modellike Serenity to decompose into style factors; and very commonly you also wantthe sector lens to group assets and view performance and risk at that level.
