ETF.com and Inside ETFs are pleased to announce the finalists for the 2017 ETF.com awards. These annual awards are designed to recognize the people, companies and products driving the ETF industry forward and delivering new value to investors.
Winners in each category will be announced at the ETF.com Awards Dinner, taking place March 22, 2018, at Chelsea Piers, Pier 61, in New York. Winners will also be announced on the ETF.com website on March 23, 2018, and in the April 2018 issue of ETF Report. For information on attending the dinner, please email [email protected].
As a reminder, the ETF.com Award winners are selected through a three-part process designed to leverage the insights and opinions of leaders throughout the ETF industry.
Public nominations opened on Dec. 4, 2017 and closed on Jan. 2, 2018. As with any rational awards process, only nominated people, firms and products are considered. We received a record number of nominations this year, so thank you to everyone who contributed your thoughts to the process.
Following the open nominations process, the ETF.com Awards Nominating committee—made up of senior leaders at ETF.com, Inside ETFs and the FactSet ETF team (whose data powers the ETF.com website and fund reports)—voted to select up to six finalists in each category.
Winners among these finalists will be selected by a majority vote of the ETF.com Awards Selection committee, a group of independent ETF experts from throughout the ETF community. Committee members will recuse themselves from voting in any category in which they or their firms appear as finalists. Ties will be decided where possible with head-to-head runoff votes.
