Be there

This year the Mutual Fund & ETF Awards are approaching a huge milestone - 30 years of celebrating the best in the industry! Throughout the last few decades, these awards have established a high level of interest and consistently received impressive entries from firms and individuals across the sector.

This has meant that being shortlisted or winning a category in these awards is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious and respected honors in the traditional asset management industry.

After another demanding but exciting year filled with innovation, creative thinking and great performance, we will be recognizing and celebrating those that are paving the way during a time of rapid change.

Be involved

Boost your firm’s profile

The Mutual Fund and ETF Awards have been running for 30 years and are widely acknowledged as the most distinguished and respected awards ceremony in the US asset management space.

Shortlisted and winning organisations will receive coverage of their achievements through With Intelligence’s channels, as well as being provided with marketing assets to use in their own collateral.

Catch the eye of new clients

As the asset management sector becomes increasingly competitive, winning one of our respected accolades will help ensure your firm truly stands out from the crowd in the eyes of new and existing clients.

Be judged by industry experts

The rigorous judging process, based on the views of a panel of leading allocators, ETF strategists, independent directors and consultants, ensures these awards remain the honor all big players really want to win.

Reward your team’s efforts

Winning a Mutual Fund and ETF Award in front of over 500 guests at our New York awards ceremony, is the perfect opportunity to celebrate and recognize all the hard work and success achieved by your team over the past year.
