The Best Active ETF Issuer Award Methodology: For each category, all of an issuer’s ETFs in that specific asset class category or grouping are combined to give a total assets under management figure. Shortlist nominations are based on the percentage change in the issuers’ assets under management in each category over a 12-month period within specified dates. Where the sample size in specific asset class categories permits, issuers are also grouped by average asset thresholds such as: USD100 million – USD1billion; USD1billion -USD10 billion; USD5 billion – USD50billion and USD50 billion+.
