Sam Ridley, Managing Director at ETF Stream, commented: "We are very proud to launch the 30 Index this year. We feel that it is hugely important to identify the hard work that our peers and colleagues are putting into the ETF Industry. The shift from active to passive is one of the long term structural changes in asset management and we are pleased to celebrate those driving the trend.

"Many of us can spend days, weeks and even months of the year with our heads down trying to make a difference for our industry, and sometimes we never actually take a moment to look back and reflect on what one has achieved. This is why we feel the 30 Index is an important initiative for the industry as it allows us to recognise the achievements of our colleagues.

"Well done to all that have made this year’s Index and thank you for making a difference to our industry."

Claud Mitrache, Jobs in ETFs’ CEO & founder, added: “It has become clear that, as much as any group of people can be, this is a very close community, a community that believes passionately that ETFs are better, fairer for investors.

“It is a passion that fuels the community to bigger achievements and exciting innovations year after year all with that end goal of making better outcomes for investors.

“There are hundreds of passionate men and women leading by example in ETFs and 30 Index only scratches the surface. Celebrating this 30 is just a start.”
