Celebrating ETF Achievements

27 APRIL 2017 ● THE GHERKIN ● LONDON

ETF.com and Inside ETFs are proud to bring together the ETF community on 27 April 2017, at The Gherkin in London for the 3rd Annual ETF.com European Awards Dinner.

2016 turned out to be an amazing year for exchange-traded funds. The industry is on pace to set a new record for net inflows, with investors putting more than $280 billion to work in ETFs. New startups and established giants alike are flooding the zone with products, whether smart beta, alternative or active in nature. Amidst it all, the ability for investors to build better portfolios than ever continues to increase.

To recognize the people, companies and products moving this industry forward, Inside ETFs and ETF.com are teaming up once again to host the annual ETF.com Europe Awards. These editorially independent awards are the most coveted in the industry, and are widely seen as the most robust recognition of innovative success.

Please join us on 27 April 2017 in London for an evening to remember as we recognize those helping to build a better investment future for all.

Attendance is by invitation only. Please contact us if you are interested in attending or sponsoring a table.
