In September, VettaFi announced the acquisition of EQM Indexes and is now proud to have it as a part of VettaFi’s overall indexing capabilities. This acquisition became the second indexing firm VettaFi acquired this year after it brought in the ROBO Global Index suite in April.
To celebrate the acquisition of EQM Indexes, Jon Fee caught up with Jane Edmondson, co-founder and CEO of EQM Indexes and the new head of thematic strategy at VettaFi.
The pair opened the discussion highlighting Edmondson’s background and her journey in developing the index. Fee and Edmondson also discuss Edmondson’s pet peeves within the indexing industry. To close the conversation, Fee and Edmondson touched on several different reasons they are very excited about EQM Indexes joining the VettaFi family.
