The annual ETF Express US Awards recognise excellence among ETF issuers and service providers in the US across a wide range of categories.
Voting for the awards is conducted via an online poll of the entire ETF Express readership, where participants are asked to make their choice among the shortlisted firms in each category.
The issuer categories cover all major strategies and asset classes — including Equity, Fixed Income, Commodity, Multi-Asset, Smart Beta, Thematic, Active and ESG — while the service provider categories span all the key areas of the large and diverse US ETF ecosystem.
All winners are invited to attend an exclusive ceremony and networking event on Thursday 23rd September 2021 at 17.00 EST, with more details to come.
The results of the awards will also be covered — along with profiles of the winners — in an ETF Express US Awards Special Report that will be distributed globally.
Voting is now open.
The ETF Express US Awards follow a clear and transparent process.
For the issuer categories, the pre-selected shortlists are based on data provided by Bloomberg. For the full methodology, please click here.
For the service provider categories, the nominated firms are based on a widespread survey of more than 100 issuers and other key industry participants.
Voting for all the eventual winners is then conducted via an exhaustive online poll of the entire ETF Express readership, which is carried out over a period of several weeks.
