You can have a say on highlighting the best of the ETF industry.
For 14 years, ETF.com has been the leading independent authority on indexes, index funds and exchange-traded funds. Over that time, we have enjoyed watching the amazing growth and innovation this industry has delivered. As a result of this innovation, investors today are fundamentally better off than they were when we started.
In an effort to recognize the forces that continue to support this growth, ETF.com annually recognizes the people, companies and products that are moving the industry forward and helping to create better outcomes for investors at its annual ETF.com Awards.
Nominations for the awards are now being accepted by clicking on this link. Details on how to submit nominations—as well as the categories, process and voting methodology for the awards—are listed below.
Winners in each category will be announced at the ETF.com Awards Dinner, taking place March 19, 2015, at Chelsea Piers, Pier 61, in New York. Winners will also be announced on the www.etf.com website on March 20, 2015, and in the April 2015 issue of ETF Report.
ETF.com Award winners are selected in a three-part process designed to leverage the insights and opinions of leaders throughout the ETF industry.
The awards process begins with an open nominations process, which starts Dec. 1 and closes Dec. 31. Interested parties are invited to submit nominations using this survey form. Self-nominations are accepted.
