Responding to growth in new products, Morningstar will launch a Digital Assets Morningstar Category in April 2022.

Digital assets are still in their early stages, yet the investment universe is ripe with innovation. Morningstar is taking steps to provide tools for tracking and analyzing the group of funds more uniformly. At the onset, the new category will act as a holding pen for the wide variety of digital-assets funds. As the category grows and asset managers become more specialized in their approaches, we expect that the category will evolve. Given that, the category will not be rated or ranked and will only capture U.S.-domiciled vehicles. It will feature several funds that invest in digital assets via the spectrum of access points—exchange-traded funds, mutual funds, hedge funds and trusts.
