ETF provider definition

An ETF provider is a company that makes exchange traded funds (ETFs). Some of the major ETF providers include iShares by BlackRock and Vanguard.

The first ETF provider was State Street Global Advisors, who introduced the ETF in 1993. It was designed to track the performance of the S&P 500. Now, there are 1000s of different ETFs available from a wide variety of ETF providers.

ETF providers use authorised participants to supply the constituent securities for the ETFs that they create.
