ETF Stream has revealed the winners for its inaugural ETF awards which took place on 2 December at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
With 16 carefully selected categories, the awards – hosted by ETF Stream’s founder and strategic adviser David Stevenson – act as a barometer of success for the ETF industry in Europe.
Following a rigorous assessment of the nominations, the editorial team at ETF Stream including editor Tom Eckett and strategic adviser David Stevenson selected the shortlist.
Subsequently, the judging panel of 10 external experts from across the European ETF market analysed the submissions and cast votes to determine who will be the winner of each award.
