Financial services firm Fidelity investment has launched a digital assets analytics platform for institutional investors.
Fidelity’s Sherlock To Guide Institutional Investors
Fidelity named the platform Sherlock, which is a digital assets analysis tool that will provide fundamental and technical analysis for fund managers and investors.
The platform will also research crypto-assets relying on quality institutional data providers coupled with the provision of unique analytics to guide investors.
Fidelity’s Sherlock is expected to provide much-needed competition against existing solutions produced by companies like Messari.
Other giant forces to be reckoned with in the provision of data and analytics are Dune Analytics, Glassnode, Skew, Coin Metrics, and Santiment.
Speaking on the new development, Kevin Vora, Vice president, Product Management, Fidelity Center for Applied Technology (FCAT), said Sherlock would deliver comprehensive data and deep analytics as clients will no longer face numerous irrelevant resources.
Fidelity Dominating the Crypto Space
Besides developing Sherlock to help institutional investors, Fidelity investment has been making significant contributions to the crypto space.
Earlier, Fidelity Charitable, the charitable arm of the mutual fund giant, reportedly raised $28 million in cryptocurrency donations.
The acceptance of cryptocurrencies as part of donations for the non-profit was a welcome development in the crypto space.
More importantly, the investment firm plans to launch its bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) for digital assets and virtual currency, per Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
While SEC is yet to approve any firm to date, Fidelity might be feeling lucky due to its track record in the traditional finance space.
Given the prevalence of existing data and analytics solutions for institutional investors, observers will be eager to see if the newly introduced Sherlock solution by Fidelity investment will also turn things around.
