ETF Express has recognised the achievements of ETF managers and service providers in the US for the very first time at the inaugural ETF Express US Awards.
The winners were presented with their awards in a ceremony at the Intercontinental in New York City on 24 October 2019 attended by over 50 of the most accomplished managers and service providers working in the US today.
ETF Express partnered with Algo-Chain to pre-select managers based on their performance over the previous 12 months. The winners were then decided via a rigorous reader-choice online poll carried out over ten weeks. The winners in all categories were those who attracted the most votes from ETF Express’ readers.
Overall, 1202 readers participated, of which 26 per cent were investors; 39 per cent were managers; and 35 per cent were service providers.
ETF Express would like to thank everyone who voted and offer congratulations to all the winners.
