Deborah Fuhr, Managing Partner & Co-founder of ETFGI, has been named as the 2014 William F Sharpe Indexing Lifetime Achievement Award winner.

 This distinguished award recognises the most accomplished innovators and practitioners in the indexing industry, and was  presented by The Journal of Index Investing.
Fuhr is considered one of the leading global experts on ETFs with over 20 years industry experience in financial products, 15 of which have focused on exchanged traded funds and exposures. Currently she is the managing partner and co-founder of ETFGI, an independent research and consultancy firm established in early 2012 to provide analysis on the global ETF and ETP industry. The firm is focused on providing thought leadership, publishing independent research on industry trends, the eco-system, institutional users, products, applications, and competitors, and providing education and assistance to investors on product comparison, asset allocation implementation, as well as offering customised research and consulting.
Prior to ETFGI, Fuhr was the Global Head of ETF Research and Implementation Strategy at BlackRock/Barclays Global Investors from 2008 to 2011, and was a Managing Director and Head of the Investment Strategies Group at Morgan Stanley for 11 years prior to that.
Fuhr commenced her career at Greenwich Associates and has lectured extensively on ETFs and other exchange traded exposures. She has served on several industry bodies and is a consultant to investors, promoters, distributors, stock exchanges, trading platforms and national- and supra-national regulatory bodies.
She was recently named as one of the Top 100 women in European Finance in 2014 by Financial News. She has an MBA from the JL Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, and Bachelor of Science from the University of Connecticut.
