Dave Nadig

Managing Director

Previously, Dave was director of ETFs at FactSet Research Systems, a position he took when ETF.com divested itself of the ETF data business. Dave returned to ETF.com in November 2016, picking up after first joining the firm in 2008. He has been involved in researching, reporting and analyzing the investment management industry for more than 20 years, and recently co-authored a definitive book on ETFs, “A Comprehensive Guide To Exchange Traded Funds” for the CFA Institute.

As a managing director at Barclays Global Investors, Dave helped design and market some of the first ETFs. With partner Don Luskin, he went on to found MetaMarkets.com, a revolutionary transparent mutual fund company that pushed fund disclosure to the top of the SEC agenda. As co-founder at Cerulli Associates in the early '90s, Dave conducted some of the earliest research on fee-only financial advisors and the rise of indexing. He is widely quoted in the financial press, a regular speaker at finance conferences, and publishes a widely read blog at ETF.com. Dave has an MBA in finance from Boston University.
