ETF Stream Awards Ads 2023 ARTICLE Shortlist revealed

ETF Stream has revealed the shortlist for this year’s ETF awards which is set to take place on 30 November, in partnership with Morningstar Indexes.

This year, ETF Stream has added five categories – Active ETF Of The Year, Commodity ETF Of The Year, RFQ Platform Of The Year, ETF PR Firm Of The Year and Ticker Of The Year – which takes the total number of awards to 25.

Following a rigorous assessment of the nominations, the editorial team at ETF Stream including editor Tom Eckett and founder and strategic adviser David Stevenson selected the shortlist.

Subsequently, the judging panel of nine external experts from across the European ETF market will analyse the submissions and cast votes to determine who will be the winner of each award.

The nine judges are:

  • Liz Wright, head of EMEA index sales, Morningstar Indexes

  • Wayne Nutland, fund manager, Premier Miton

  • Veronique Morel-Kane, senior wealth manager and branch principal, Raymond James

  • John Leiper, CIO, Titan Asset Management

This year, four ETF buyers – Caps, Leiper, Morel-Kane, Nutland – and Morningstar’s Wright will select the winners of 12 awards including ETF Issuer Of The Year and ETF Of The Year.

Meanwhile, five ETF industry experts will judge the other nine awards including Index Provider Of The Year and Liquidity Provider Of The Year.

Four awards – Outstanding Contribution To ETFs, ETF Buyer Of The Year, Ticker Of The Year and ETF PR Firm Of The Year – will be selected by ETF Stream’s editorial team.

“A record number of entries this year made selecting the shortlist an even bigger challenge,” Eckett said.
