There’s no question: the exchange traded fund (ETF) industry is growing by leaps and bounds. In the last year alone, assets surged nearly 50% and the number of funds swelled close to 800. That growth can only mean one thing…

It’s a law of employment physics: when an industry is growing, the number of available jobs grows right along with it. I saw it with my own eyes at the recent Inside ETFs Conference in Boca Raton, Florida, this month. Dozens of providers expressed to me how excited they are about the growth their industry has seen in recent years and they’re even more optimistic about the future.

I frequently receive calls from ETF providers who are looking to hire people with the right skills to give them the edge they need in an increasingly competitive market.

But it isn’t easy to hire new employees in the ETF world. As a relatively new financial product, job prospects may be lacking the experience a provider is looking for. And because ETFs are still growing, making the right hire is more critical than ever.

For that reason, we thought it was only right to start the ETF Trends Job Board to help match these growing companies with people like you: people who know, understand and love ETFs, people who may be looking for work in the financial industry. We hope it will become the go-to place for ETF industry jobs – where employers can go to find the best candidate for the position and where job seekers can go to find their ETF industry dream job.
