There are a lot of things I love about the redesign of IndexUniverse.com: the great look and feel, the improved functionality, the expanded content possibilities. But one of the things I’m most excited about is this blog.
My colleague Jim Wiandt and I spend our days researching, writing and talking about the ETF and index industries. We’re on the phone; we’re reading other sites; we’re analyzing data. We’re IM-ing each other all the time with thoughts, opinions and the occasional scoops. (Yes, we are indexing and ETF geeks, non pareil.)
This blog is a window into that world. It’s a chance for Jim and I to offer views on the industry, link out to well-written stories elsewhere on the Web (yes, they do exist), and really open up the dialogue on this site. We invite feedback – in fact, we covet it – so don’t hesitate to comment. Collective wisdom and insight is always best.
Some of what we learn makes it into articles on IndexUniverse.com, but not all of it. Sometimes, we might uncover one little piece of information that doesn’t merit a full-on story, but is still interesting and important. Other times, we’ll have an insight, or an opinion.
This blog is all about that…
