Respected exchange traded fund analyst Deborah Fuhr has opened an independent research and consultancy company focusing on the global ETF business.

The new firm is ETF Global Insight.

Fuhr produced research for ETF manager BlackRock, and for Barclays Global Investors before it was acquired by BlackRock. Before that, she spent 11 years at Morgan Stanley.

“Having covered the ETF industry since 1997 when there were only 21 products and $21 billion in assets under management I believe that ETFs have been one of the most successful financial products of the past 25 years, bringing investors liquidity, diversification and low-cost access to a wide range of asset classes around the world,” Fuhr said in a press release.
