Celebrating 14 Years of ETF Growth

The final workshop of the event was focused on the history of ETFs and included Bob Tull and Kathleen Moriarty, two industry veterans that helped the first ETFs launch in America. We would also like to congratulate Bob Tull for receiving the life time achievement award. This panel gave insights into the early days of ETF trading and growth. The discussion was moderated by the Toronto Stock Exchange, which actually listed the first ETF in Canada before the launch of SPY, the first US ETF.

Finally, in celebration of the industry’s growth our own meta index was acknowledged, the TETF.Index. The ETF that tracks TETF.index received this year’s award for Most Innovative ETF. We are honored and excited to receive an award for innovation since we consistently sight innovation as a primary growth factor for the ETF industry. How is that for meta?
