Hector McNeil, Co-CEO
London, Wednesday, 9 March 2016: WisdomTree, the exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) and exchange-traded product (“ETP”) sponsor, and the world’s largest currency-hedged ETF issuer has been voted ‘Best Smart Beta Provider’ and ‘Most Innovative European ETN Provider’ by etfexpress in their annual awards.
The awards recognise excellence among managers and service providers of exchanged traded funds around the world. WisdomTree has previously been named ‘Most Innovative European ETP Provider’ (2013 – 2015) as well as ‘Best Currency Manager’ etfexpress in 2015.
The awards are voted on by etfexpress readers including institutional and high net worth investors as well as managers and other industry professionals at fund administrators, brokers, custodians and advisers.
“We’re pleased to be recognised – especially when it comes from our industry peers and clients,” said Nizam Hamid, WisdomTree Europe Head of Sales. “A lot of people talk about the term ‘Smart Beta’ but we can really claim to be an innovator in this space. For almost the last ten years, we have been pioneering the concept of fundamentally weighted indices incorporated into an efficient ETF structure. Boost is widely recognised as a pioneering ETN issuer with leading short and leveraged ETPs”
WisdomTree’s physical ETFs typically track proprietary indices which are based on in-house research and structured by its own product development team. Boost ETPs are liquid, accessible and transparent and can be created and redeemed on a continuous basis by market makers, matching the tremendous liquidity of the underlying markets and can be traded by investors on a regulated exchange in the same way as any equity.
