Since 2006, the renowned EDHEC-Risk European ETF and Smart Beta Survey has witnessed the evolution of European investors' ETF practices and continued to provide insight into the latest trends.

The rising demand for SRI/Ethical ETFs and significant interest in fixed-income Smart Beta solutions were two major recent trends examined in the 12th edition.
