US ETF Distribution Awards winners announced


The winners of the first US ETF Distribution Awards at the Exchange conference, hosted by ETF Express and sponsored by ACA Foreside, were announced last night in the Glimmer ballroom at the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami.

The Exchange event was its usual lively self – did anyone mention drinks? – but packed with familiar faces from the ETF industry. Conversations circulated around the increased asset take in Europe, new structures for ETFs in the US and the inevitable discussion on the spot bitcoin ETFs, sealed by a drone display in the Florida night from Grayscale, featuring a giant golden bitcoin spinning on its own axis.

We will be publishing a series of interviews conducted at the event over the coming days.

The Awards were in-conference and sponsored by ACA Foreside which was named Best ETF Distributor/underwriter in last year’s ETF Express US ETF Awards. In 2023, ACA Foreside assisted with over half of the ETF launches in the US, now distributing over 1,000 ETFs across more than 275 managers.

The Distribution awards were designed to give the financial advisers attending the event a voice to choose their favourite ETFs and their issuers from attending firms.

The winners were announced by Chris Lanza, Partner and Co-head of Distribution at ACA Foreside. Many congratulations to all our winners.
