The pre-selection data for the issuer shortlists for our awards has been provided by Trackinsight since 2020. Candidates in all ETF asset class categories and groupings are determined on the basis of the following criteria.
All currently listed ETFs listed before specified dates in specified locations are included in the issuer universe.
For each category, all of an issuer’s ETFs in that specific asset class category or grouping are combined to give a total assets under management figure.
Within all categories, issuers with assets of below USD100 million are excluded (based on average assets during the period under review).
Shortlist nominations are based on the percentage change in the issuers’ assets under management in each category over a 12-month period within specified dates.
Where the sample size in specific asset class categories permits, issuers are also grouped by average asset thresholds such as: USD100 million – USD1billion; USD1billion -USD10 billion; USD5 billion – USD50billion and USD50 billion+.
