The first physical outing of the ETF Express US awards after two years of digital events due to Covid, saw the great and the good of the US ETF industry meeting at New York’s Metropolitan Club.
Discussion surrounded the difficulties of a volatile year – one which has seen down markets in both equities and bonds, but inflows into ETFs reaching on target to be the second highest ever.
The resilient ETF industry has again proved its adaptability in challenging market conditions and new launches this year have focused on active management, trying to profit from those tricky markets, and from a desire to create income.
Some firms have seen extraordinary growth over 2022 – Pacer ETFs was out in force on the evening of the awards, having won a number of awards, but also seen their assets grow exponentially over a difficult year.
The ETF Express awards, in the US and Europe, use a robust methodology to arrive at their winners which combines data from our data partner, Trackinsight, for the issuers’ categories, and a two-pronged approach for service providers, involving a nomination stage and then a peer vote stage.
A win in these awards reflects both the science bit and a popularity contest. This year we had the most votes in these awards that we have ever had.
This awards’ special report contains interviews with many of our winners, detailing why they think they won in 2022.
Many congratulations to all our winners.
