The etfexpress Awards 2011 for excellence among managers and service providers of exchange-traded funds has reflected the rapid growth of the industry over the past year amid investment by a broader range of clients, institutional, corporate and individual, than ever before.

The awards, presented on 2 March by actress Cherie Lunghi at a lunch in Mayfair, were decided by the votes of etfexpress subscribers, who include investors as well as managers and other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, custodians, advisers and distributors.

The etfexpress Awards 2011 honour the firms that have contributed to the rapid development of an industry that saw assets increase by nearly 30 per cent last year and that is forecast to reach USD2trn in the course of 2012.
 
It also comes as the industry marks the 21st anniversary of its inception on 9 March 1990, when the first ETF, the Toronto 35 Index Participation Fund, was listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Today the sector has expanded to embrace other products such as exchange-traded notes and commodities traded on 50 exchanges around the world.
