In January they launched the first-ever index that tracks AI innovators and selects its constituents based on an AI algorithm. They followed this up by launching first a range of LDI bond indices in April and then, in May, their EURO STOXX Multi Premia Index, that complements a suite of factor and multi factor strategies. Over the summer they expanded their thematics suite with indices covering blockchain, fintech and B.R.AI.N (biotechnology, robotics, AI and nanotechnology).
