In January, ClearRock was nominated for the 2017 ETF.com Awards category of ETF Investor of the Year Award. This distinction is awarded to a financial advisor, advisor team or institutional investor that is using ETFs to deliver high-quality portfolios in an innovative way. ClearRock was named one of five finalists out of a record turn-out of nominations.
We were honored to have made it to the “final round” in this category and look forward to building upon that distinction. To read more about the ETF.com annual awards, please click here.
Selection criteria: ETF.com award winners are selected through a three-part process designed to leverage the insights and opinions of leaders throughout the ETF industry.
Step 1 Public nominations opened on Dec. 4, 2017 and closed on Jan. 2, 2018. Only nominated people, firms and products are considered.
Step 2 Following the open nominations process, the ETF.com Awards Nominating committee—made up of senior leaders at ETF.com, Inside ETFs and the FactSet ETF team (whose data powers the ETF.com website and fund reports)—vote to select up to six finalists in each category.
Step 3 Winners among these finalists are selected by a majority vote of the ETF.com Awards Selection committee, a group of independent ETF experts from throughout the ETF community. Committee members will recuse themselves from voting in any category in which they or their firms appear as finalists. Ties are decided where possible with head-to-head runoff votes.
