This programme has led to extensive research on indices and benchmarks in both the hedge fund universe and the more traditional investment classes. In 2006, EDHEC published a study of the quality of major stock market indices. Following up on this study, EDHEC is carrying out work that assesses the advantages and disadvantages of various new forms of equity indices. In view of the growth and development of ETFs in Europe, and in view of their growing popularity as investment media for both index management and the construction of benchmarks, it is only natural that EDHEC should devote significant resources to research into ETFs. In 2006, with the support of iShares, we published the first EDHEC European ETF survey. The present survey, an update and extension of the 2006 survey, sheds light on recent developments and trends in ETF investing.
