LONDON, 13 September 2017 – ETF Stream (www.etfstream.com) launches new “go-to” news and educational ETF website.
Founded by leading ETF commentator, media entrepreneur and bestselling author David Stevenson*, ETF Stream will seek to educate both investors and industry participants on ETFs, as well as become a new ETF news and data resource across Europe and Asia/Australasia.
The launch comes at a time of rapid growth of ETFs, presenting opportunities and challenges for those navigating the market. A record 391.3 billion US dollars in net new assets was invested in global ETFs/ETPs in the first 7 months of 2017, surpassing the $390.4bn invested during the whole of 2016, according to data from ETFGI.
“Across the globe we are seeing a number of new firms come to market, including traditional asset managers, insurance companies and banks. There has also been an uptick in the number of mergers and acquisitions in the ETF space as firms seek to acquire assets, distribution capabilities and, most importantly, talent. We expect that trend to continue,” explained Claud Mitrache, Founder of Jobs in ETFs. “We are excited to welcome ETF Stream as a new player in the ETF ecosystem”.
David Stevenson of ETF Stream, commented: “Our international team of journalists cover all the new issues, highlighting people moves and tracking the industry’s rapid growth.” He added: “ETF Stream is also focused on educating the investor and advisor through the use of news features, analysis and data to help explain the passive investment industry to a wider audience.”
