ETF Express European Awards 2021

The team at ETF Express is very pleased to announce the winners of this year’s ETF Express European Awards, compiled in conjunction with Bloomberg.

The winners, in this 11th outing for the popular ETF Express European awards, represent the best in the European ETF industry, from issuers to service providers, covering all parts of the ETF ecosystem.

Our partners in the awards, Bloomberg, provided the shortlisted nominations for the top performing ETF issuers across a range of asset classes and these, along with the service provider categories, were then voted on by the industry.

This means that winning an ETF Express award constitutes a vote of recognition from your peers and a significant mark of achievement, particularly so in what was an extraordinary year.
