ETFS Capital, the ETF investment company chaired by ETF industry veteran Graham Tuckwell, has acquired the business of ETF.com from Cboe Global Markets (Cboe).
ETF.com was founded in 2001 to publish and comment on ETFs and was acquired by Cboe, previously Bats, in 2016.
Graham Tuckwel (pictured)l, Chairman, ETFS Capital, says: “The ongoing record growth of the global ETF industry is an incredible opportunity for an industry-leading resource like ETF.com. All participants want more effective and innovative ways to share, analyse and understand the evolution of the global ETF industry, so we are acquiring and further investing in ETF.com to make this a reality.”
Laura Morrison, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Listings, Cboe Global Markets, says: “We are thrilled to have ETF.com join the ETFS Capital group. Cboe is a passionate champion for the global ETF industry and we believe the innovative thinking, deep experience and planned investment from ETFS Capital in the business and people of ETF.com will not only grow this journalistic enterprise into a global media brand, but also benefit the ETF industry as a whole. Cboe plans to continue offering ETF.com’s excellent resources and marketing services to our listings and trading clients as its global footprint broadens.” Morrison added: “This deal also creates the opportunity for related collaboration between Cboe and ETFS Capital over time.”
