Jim Wiandt is the founder of ETF.com.


He founded ETF.com in 2001 with a vision of creating the central hub for information and analysis on indexes, index funds and ETFs. That year, Wiandt acquired Indexes: The Journal of Index Issues from Dow Jones, and transformed the publication into a fully independent journal with broad support from the index industry. He made an early move into ETFs, purchasing the Exchange-Traded Funds Report (the longest-running ETF newsletter in the world) in 2003.


Wiandt subsequently joined forces with Steven Schoenfeld to work on Schoenfeld's landmark Wiley Finance book "Active Index Investing." The two later developed IndexUniverse.com as a broadly scoped, independent website focused on indexes and ETFs. Now with ETF.com, the company has since expanded into conferences, where it runs, among other events, the world's largest ETF conference (Inside ETFs).


Previously, Wiandt was publisher of IndexFunds.com. He is also the author of "Exchange Traded Funds," a book published by John Wiley & Sons in 2001. Wiandt has served as an editor and writer for Compton's Encyclopedia, and worked as a contract journalist in West Africa, after serving in the Peace Corps in Niger. He is a 1991 graduate of Tufts University.
