Ultumus and ETF Stream announce strategic partnership to popularise cutting edge data and commentary

Leading data vendor Ultumus is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with the innovative news and events service ETF Stream, which launched today.

Ultumus will be supplying cutting edge data and analysis of key ETF trends to ETF Stream on a regular basis. In particular Ultumus and ETF Stream will be working closely on the daily Global ETF service which tracks new issues and cross listings as well as other corporate actions. ETF Stream will also be taking – and analysing – the monthly trends analysis by Ultumus and founder Bernie Thurston will also be penning a monthly column for the news based website.

According to Ultumus founder and CEO Bernie Thurston, “We’re delighted to be working so closely with the team at ETF Stream. We both share the objective of building a world class reputation for definitive analysis of the fast-growing ETF space globally.  What’s needed now is comprehensive data and analysis which allows investors to make more informed judgements. ETF Stream’s high quality comment and analysis will be a perfect addition to our data and we look forward to working with ETF Stream as it rolls its news and events out globally”.

ETF Stream – available online now at www.etfstream.com – launches today.

Focussed on the fast-growing index funds industry, ETF Stream will initially report on the latest news, analysis and opinion from Europe and Asia Pacific, with a dedicated Australasian service launching later this year.

ETF Stream will also provide a gateway to the latest debates within asset allocation and portfolio management via its Investor Focus content. Over time, the website intends to build this as the definitive place for third party issuer (and index firm) research about key investment trends – aided by its own extensive library of background papers, educational articles and guides.

To help build this focus on asset allocation ETF Stream will also be launching a regular bi weekly radio podcast called The Big Call which will examine in detail the key asset allocation trends. The launch programme is out this week and looks at what might happen next for bonds – it features experts from ETF Securities, Parala and IG.

The Big Call will also be sponsored by Ultumus.

While giving investors the best stories from Europe and Asia-Pac, ETF Stream will also be building a strong events franchise, built around The Big Call brand – with its first summit kicking off in Sydney, Australia in April 2018.

Founder of ETF Stream David Stevenson comments: “Passive investing is massive – it’s growing at a phenomenal rate. Our international team of journalists will cover all the new issues, people moves, best practice and latest developments, to track the industry’s continuing rise.

“We’re also dedicated to educating the investor and advisor – our guides, features, analysis and data will help explain the passive investment industry to a wider audience, providing as much information as possible.

“We want ETF Stream to be the “go to” source for everything related to ETFs in Europe and Asia/Australasia.”
