European awards trophies 2024

European ETF awards’ winners for 2024 celebrated

This week saw the 14th outing for our European ETF awards with many of the winners gathering in central London to celebrate the increasing strength of the ETF industry in Europe and their individual roles in that growth.

It’s always good to see familiar faces and to meet new ones as our method of arriving at winners using peer voting throws up the latest most popular firms for service providers, while Trackinsight data for issuers reflects investment trends in our sector.

We like to emphasise that the firms with the most votes win – simple! We also like to emphasise that our awards are the oldest in Europe and not a pay to play event. If you win one of our awards you have received the most votes and can attend the event and collect your trophy for free, with the option of paying for further marketing support.

We will be publishing the Special Report within a week which will list all the winners in this year’s awards and feature interviews with many of them. Many congratulations to our winners – it’s such a pleasure to be working with you all.

We have two interviews this week, one with SS&C ALPS Advisors’ Laton Spahr and Paul Baiocchi on the growth of the ETF business at their firm. Spahr says that the most exciting story in ETFs is the rise of the active fund. “The macro backdrop has dominated and the emergence of the magnificent seven is the most consistent thing we have seen alongside this drumbeat of the growth in active ETFs,” he says.

Our second interview is with Hartford Funds’ Brian Kraus, SVP of Systematic ETFs at Hartford Funds, who explains that the firm has recently built out a dedicated sales team for its systematic ETFs, hiring 12 business developers who are geographically assigned across the country and engaging with advisers to explain the firm’s multi-factor and systematic ETFs.

“We are super excited about the runway we have for all our ETFs,” Kraus says.

This week also saw us launch our next awards schedule with service provider nominations open for the Canadian ETF awards.
