Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 2,0, Grenoble Ecole de Management, language: English, abstract: 1AbstractAs the ETF industry has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, inves-tors and advisors are finding themselves with more options than ever before.

This trend however is only now beginning to change as institutions find that ETFs can help attain a variety of goals that many other investment vehicles simply cannot provide. A recent survey from Greenwich Associates (carried out in 2010) that polled 70 investment firms revealed that ETF use is rising sharply.
