Maples and Calder has been named Europe’s best exchange-traded funds (ETF) law firm.

The international law firm was crowned Best ETF Law Firm in Europe at the 2016 Europe Awards in recognition of the firm’s status as “a huge player in the Ireland funds and ETF space”.

Peter Stapleton, partner and head of investment funds in Ireland, said: “We are delighted to accept this award which recognises the expertise of our Dublin-based investment funds lawyers across a broad legal, regulatory and tax framework affecting ETFs.

“The award is also a testament to the success of many of the world’s leading ETF providers who constantly challenge us to provide innovative and effective legal solutions to benefit their investors. We are proud to represent these clients.”

Ireland accounts for about 56 per cent of all European ETFs. In 2016, Irish ETFs had over €40 billion of net sales.
