CETFA Congratulates the Winners of the Inaugural Lipper ETF Awards

The Canadian ETF Association (CETFA) would like to congratulate all of the winners of the 2014 Lipper ETF Awards.

Canada is the first country in the world to receive ETF awards from Lipper. The Lipper Awards are one of the most well-known and prestigious investment fund awards in the world.

"Canada was the first country in the world to launch an ETF Industry association, the CETFA, so it's only natural that we are also the first jurisdiction in the world to have Lipper recognize us for ETF awards," said Howard Atkinson, the current chair of the CETFA.  "This is all a strong testament to the fact that ETFs are a vital part of the Canadian investment landscape"

The Lipper Awards are given to the ETFs in each Canadian Investment Funds Standard Committee (CIFSC).
