Compass and SESAMm Announce the Launch of the Crypto Sentiment Adaptative Index family

2 May 2024 | LAUSANNE, Switzerland – PARIS, France – NEW YORK, USA

In a strategic move to redefine the landscape of cryptocurrency investments, Compass, the leading independent index provider based in Switzerland and SESAMm, a frontrunner in AI-based data solutions for investment professionals, proudly unveil an innovative suite of crypto indexes, the Compass Sesamm Crypto Sentiment Adaptive Indices (CSA). This second collaboration is set to introduce a pioneering approach to cryptocurrency exposure, meticulously designed to mitigate drawdowns during market corrections, thereby offering a more stable investment pathway in the volatile crypto market.

The newly launched index suite emerges at a crucial time, as investors increasingly seek strategies to navigate the unpredictable swings of the cryptocurrency markets. By leveraging SESAMm’s advanced data analytics capabilities and Compass’s expertise in financial index structuring, the partnership aims to provide investors with a robust tool to achieve optimized exposure to cryptocurrencies, while significantly reducing the potential impacts of market downturns.

The index family comprises:

  • Compass SESAMm Crypto Sentiment Adaptive Bitcoin & Gold Index
  • Compass SESAMm Crypto Sentiment Adaptive Bitcoin & T-Bills Index

This second collaboration with SESAMm marks a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to enhance the accessibility and reliability of cryptocurrency investments,” said Edouard Mouton, Head of Research and co-Founder at Compass. “Understanding the inherent volatility of the crypto market, our primary goal with this index suite is to offer a safeguarded investment avenue that not only ensures exposure to the promising returns of cryptocurrencies but also diligently works to protect against the adverse effects of market corrections.

Powered by SESAMm’s sophisticated AI analytics, this innovative index suite aims to provide dynamic exposure to the crypto market. It does this by measuring market sentiment towards cryptocurrencies and reducing exposure during periods of negative sentiment. This approach combines sentiment analysis with financial optimisation, creating an adaptive risk exposure strategy tailored to the ever-evolving crypto environment.

Thomas Montagnon, SESAMm’s Director – Index & Data Solutions, expressed enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, “We are thrilled to continue our journey of innovation with Compass Financial Technologies and leverage their expertise in index construction. This collaboration introduces a powerful tool for investors to navigate the crypto market effectively. In the wake of the latest SEC approval, we recognize the need for continuous innovation to offer our clients meaningful and risk-adaptive solutions in this fast-paced crypto environment. AI and sentiment analysis are key concepts for achieving these goals.

The launch of the CSA “crypto sentiment adaptive” index suite is a testament to Compass and SESAMm’s commitment to innovation and their shared vision of making cryptocurrency investments more accessible, less intimidating, and substantially safer for investors around the globe. As the crypto market continues to evolve, this partnership is poised to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of digital asset investing, offering a beacon of stability in an otherwise turbulent sector.
