Yewno Partners With STOXX to Launch Blockchain Index


Yewno, Inc., a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence solutions in
the Financial sector, today announces the launch of the iSTOXX Yewno
Developed Markets Blockchain Index together with STOXX, Deutsche Börse
Group's index provider. This is the second index based on Yewno's unique
algorithm launched by STOXX, following the STOXX® AI Global Artificial
Intelligence Index introduced January this year. This new Index
leverages Yewno's intelligent framework and extracts a portfolio of
companies from a wide range of industries that are highly exposed in the
development of technologies related to blockchain. These companies are
therefore considered to be well-positioned to benefit from the increased
adoption of blockchain.

The iSTOXX Yewno Developed Markets Blockchain Index methodology involves
an underlying dynamic knowledge graph which aggregates a large volume of
structured and unstructured data in order to find companies that are
exposed to Blockchain technology and research. The selection of
companies can span multiple sectors and industries, and each component
is selected based on the highest exposure to the target theme. The
approach leverages advanced techniques typically applied within the
fields of complex systems, computational linguistics and artificial

This particular index includes companies selected from the STOXX®
Developed Markets Total Market Index which are found to have exposure to
Blockchain. The Index will serve as underlying strategy for an
exchange-traded fund to be listed on the Canadian market in coming weeks.

"Yewno continues its journey in the creation of unique instruments able
to surface hidden relationships across billions of increasingly
fragmented, structured and unstructured data points leveraging our
proprietary dynamic knowledge graph and Inference Engine. Once again, we
are proud to strengthen our relationship with key partners such as STOXX
in order to build solutions that readily capture emerging signals from a
multitude of information sources," said Yewno CEO Ruggero Gramatica.

"Blockchain is one of the most disruptive megatrends of our times and
will play a major role in the transition towards a digital, highly
technological world. We are excited to team up again with award-winning
AI company Yewno. Their advanced approach, identifying the constituents
for this index in a fully automated way is complementing STOXX's
approach to offer rules-based and transparent investment strategies,"
said Matteo Andreetto, CEO of STOXX.

"With STOXX Thematic Indices we target investment exposure to modern
megatrends, and provide solutions to make that exposure precise and
reliable," said Roberto Lazzarotto, Global Head of Sales at STOXX. "The
iSTOXX Yewno Developed Markets Blockchain Index fulfills both goals,
offering a unique strategy geared to a fascinating technological
evolution of our times."
