The aim of this study was to analyse the usage of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in investment management and to give a detailed account of the current perceptions and practices of European investors in ETFs. Responses were provided by 219 European investment decision-makers, 180 of which were ETF users. The survey respondents were from 25 different countries, with 41% of them being from the UK and Switzerland. A vast majority of survey respondents were Institutional managers (76%) and more than half of the respondents (51%) were asset managers.

For the third year running, in view of the considerable development in new forms of indices, as well as the increasing attention smart beta ETFs have received in the media in the recent years, part of the survey was dedicated to investment professionals’ practices and use of products tracking smart beta indices and on the importance of risk factors in alternative equity beta strategies. The present document is a focus on investor perceptions about smart beta ETFs, as reported by the survey.
