ETF Trends and ETF Database has announced that Todd Rosenbluth is to join them as Head of Research.
Rosenbluth will be responsible for overseeing the firm’s research into ETFs, product trends, and adviser behaviour. His joining will strengthen the firm’s position as the foremost industry source for ETF and adviser data, the firm says.
“Todd is a leading authority on ETFs and is well respected in the industry. Adding his expertise and prominence will further deepen our ETF research platform,” says Tom Lydon, CEO of ETF Trends and Database. “Todd’s insights are considered a go-to resource by advisors, index providers and ETF issuers alike.”
Current Director of Research and ETF pioneer Dave Nadig will be transitioning to a newly created role focused on emerging trends that will shape the future of the ETF industry, the firm says. As the firm’s Financial Futurist, Dave will partner with both investors and the asset management community to provide thought leadership on important financial services trends, product innovations and navigating global markets.
“As ETFs continue to hit record levels of inflows, investors are increasingly eager to learn about the growing number of products available to support their portfolio goals,” says Rosenbluth, a 25-year ETF and equity investments veteran. “Along with changing market conditions, it’s more important than ever to empower advisors with information on how to navigate this environment. Vehicles such as ETFs can help them do that.”
Rosenbluth most recently served as Head of ETF & Mutual Fund Research at CFRA, where he helped grow the business and provide expert analysis for five years. Prior to joining CFRA, he served in a similar funds leadership capacity and was head of a stock research team at S&P Global. Rosenbluth started his professional career as a financial adviser. He is widely cited by the media and institutions as a key independent voice in the field, the firm says.
“The modern financial adviser has shifted to learning about ETFs digitally, and we have a unique ability to connect ETF practitioners with the latest education and strategies in the asset management community,” says Tom Hendrickson, President of ETF Trends and ETF Database. “We look forward to deepening our research offerings and continuing to expand our digital footprint. With the combined firepower of Todd as our new Head of Research and Dave as the firm’s first Financial Futurist, we are now able to provide greater insights through our educational programs, data & analytics, and thought leadership.”
