The ETF Express US Awards follow a clear and transparent process. 

For the issuer categories, the pre-selected shortlists are based on data provided by Bloomberg. 

For the service provider categories, the nominated firms are based on a widespread survey of more than 100 issuers and other key industry participants. 

Voting for all the eventual winners is then conducted via an exhaustive online poll of the entire ETF Express readership of over 10,000 subscribers, which is carried out over a period of several weeks.
