Securitize; a digital asset security firm said in a blog post that it has partnered with S&P Dow Jones Indices to tokenize two of its investing indices, the Cryptocurrency Large Cap-Ex-MegaCap Index and the Kensho New Economies Composite Index.

The newly released products will be available only to authorized investors through Securitize Capital, Securitize’s digital asset management arm. Securitize claimed in a news statement on Wednesday that it employed Algorand; a Proof-of-Stake blockchain, as the underlying network for tokenizing the money. 

Jamie Finn, co-founder, and president of Securitize explained why the company opted to start on Algorand:

“We have a great relationship with Algorand and issued the largest-ever Reg A+ capital raise on their chain, so when we decided to launch these exclusive funds tracking two of S&P’s most innovative indices; Algorand was the natural choice due to its speed and cost-efficiency.”

Securitize is the first fully-regulated investment product that tracks S&P index funds and is available as a token. Tokenized indexes already exist in the crypto sector, but they operate outside of governmental supervision. 

This is the most recent launch; which might pave the way for a wave of more tokenized funds in the future.
