ETF.com is a third-party organization which specializes in providing resources on Exchange Traded Funds. ETF.com Award winners are selected in a three-part process. The process begins with open nominations where interested parties were invited to submit nominations. Self-nominations were accepted. Then the ETF.com Awards Nominating Committee – made up of senior leaders at ETF.com, Inside ETFs, and senior members of the FactSet ETF Analytics team – selected up to five finalists in each category. The winners are selected from these finalists by a majority vote of the ETF.com Awards Selection Committee, which is a group of independent ETF experts. ETF.com is not affiliated with Newfound Research. There were no payments made in connection with the award. After winners were selected, Newfound Research purchased seats to attend the awards ceremony dinner. Newfound Research has not purchased any plaques, article reprints, or other similar indicia of the award. Ratings and awards may not be representative of any one client’s experience and are not indicative of Newfound Research’s future performance.
