OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ecofin is proud to announce that Ecofin Global Water ESG Fund (EBLU) was named ESG/Impact ETF of the Year at Fund Intelligence’s 2021 Mutual Fund Industry & ETF Awards Ceremony.
“We are thrilled to have won this award that not only speaks to the quality of our product, but the impact that capital investment is having on solving the global water crisis. Water is one of the most essential assets and the companies that manage, treat, and distribute water are critical to economic growth and social stability,” said Craig Fisher, Director – Strategic Relationships and Head of ETFs. “We look forward to growing our global sustainable water platform and continuing to facilitate positive change for clean water and the environment.”
EBLU tracks the Ecofin Global Water ESG IndexSM , which is comprised of companies that derive a majority of their revenues from water industry related activities and make conscientious efforts to positively impact the world environmentally, socially and with solid governance, and are poised to participate in and benefit from growth in the water industry.

Mutual Fund Industry & ETF Award Methodology
The shortlists and winners are comprised of individuals and firms who submit entries or are nominated via the online submission process, as well as through recommendations from leading market participants. Judges use the submitted application material, as well as any uploaded supplemental information, to determine which firm, individual or product they believe to be the most suitable and deserving winners for each category. Judges have the discretionary power to move nominations into alternative categories that they think may be more suitable.
The asset manager sales, marketing and leadership awards and the fund director awards are adjudicated by a panel of industry experts convened by the Fund Intelligence and Fund Directions editorial teams. The industry judges, who must declare any conflict, contribute their sector expertise to assess the shortlist of candidates and come to a decision on the winners. A separate panel of industry experts judge the ETF categories. Additional information may be obtained at https://www.mutualfundindustryawards.com/home.
