Last week, announced Jan van Eck as the winner of the 2024 Lifetime Achievement Award and Women in ETFs as the winner of the 2024 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Award. Two inspirational figures shaping the future of the ETF industry.

Jan van Eck’s relentless pursuit of innovation, driven by an understanding that financial markets mirror the complexities of the world, laid the foundational philosophy upon which MarketVector index solutions are built. His recognition fuels our dedication to focus on innovation and encourages us to relentlessly pursue excellence for all the global clients we serve. Our nomination for the Index Provider of the Year and our recent accomplishment of exceeding USD 40 billion in AUM showcases the perseverance Jan continuously inspires with the words: "Don’t give up."

MarketVector has always embraced the value of diversification, so it was rewarding to see Women in ETFs win in the DEI category and we celebrate their success and achievement as they cross their first decade in connecting, supporting, and inspiring a generation of talent in our industry. For Women in ETFs, we pass on the words: “Don’t give up,” and we extend our enthusiastic support for Women in ETFs as they embark on their next decade of transformative impact.

Our gratitude extends beyond personal milestones as we celebrate all the winners in their respective categories, and for all the nominees: “Don’t give up!”
