Fourth etfexpress Awards honour industry in record-breaking year


The fourth edition of the etfexpress Awards for excellence among managers and service providers of exchange-traded funds has honoured firms that have particularly contributed to a year of significant growth in assets for the sector.

The awards, presented today at a ceremony and lunch in Mayfair, London, sponsored by Lyxor Asset Management, were decided by the votes of etfexpress readers, who include both investors and managers as well as other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, custodians, accountants and auditors, law firms, consultants and distributors.
This year’s etfexpress Awards mirror the continuing dynamism of the industry and its success in appealing to a broader range than ever before of institutional, corporate and individual clients.
The global exchange-traded product industry attracted record-breaking annual flows of USD262.7bn in 2012, eclipsing the previous annual record of USD259.7bn set in 2008.

Fixed income and emerging markets equity ETPs were key differentiators in 2012 with both categories setting new annual flows records at USD70.0bn and USD54.8bn, respectively.

Assets ended the year at USD1.9 trillion, 27 per cent higher than a year earlier, and have subsequently crossed the USD2 trillion milestone.
