The David vs. Goliath World of Indexing ETFs

At the ETF Boot Camp we sat down with Steffen Scheuble, CEO of Solactive, to check in on the indexing world.

Steffen explains some interesting dynamics within space and outlines the two types of indexing firms.

Since its creation in 2007, Solactive has become one of the key players in the indexing space. The German multi asset class provider is focusing on tailor-made indices; developing, calculating and distributing them worldwide. Offering to its clients a faster service, with great flexibility and at a reasonable cost has allowed Solactive to become one of the fastest growing index providers over the past few years.

Solactive now calculates indices for 175 clients in Europe, America and Asia. Approximately 25 billion USD are invested in products linked to indices calculated by Solactive globally, primarily via 170 ETFs. Solactive now ranks third in the US, in terms of ETFs linked to its indices.*

Managed by Steffen Scheuble, CEO, and Christian Grabbe, COO, Solactive is organized in two business units, Equity Indexing and Bond & Complex Indexing, headed respectively by Henning Kahre and Astrid Ludwig.

It’s David versus Goliath and Steffen believes David’s precision is only getting sharper with the proliferation of technology.
