ACA Group (ACA) is honored to be recognized by the exchange-traded fund (ETF) industry for three awards during the 2022 ETF Express U.S. Awards. ACA received the awards recognition on October 27 at New York City’s Metropolitan Club when presented Best ETF Distributor, Best ETF Compliance Team for Mutual Fund to ETF conversions, and Best ETF Regulatory/Compliance Adviser. ACA Foreside delivers the firm’s registered product compliance and distribution solutions under a dedicated team for over 800 ETFs across more than 160 different managers, and is currently the largest distributor in the U.S.

Service Provider winners are selected through a robust methodology undergoing a two-step process including a widespread industry survey, where the top firms will make a shortlist, which then will go into another round of voting to select the winners for each category.

“ETFs have seen tremendous growth over the last decade plus, and we’re proud to have built a reputation over the last 15 years of being a firm’s ‘first call’ when looking to launch ETFs,” said Joseph Higgins, Associate Director at ACA Group. “This milestone is just a small testament to the partnership we share with our clients as well as our unwavering commitment to their success.”
