HANetf has announced the appointment of Faisal El-Hakim as Director, Business Development. El-Hakim’s duties will revolve around progressing the independent white-label ETF platform through Europe. To do so, El-Hakim will work on building relationships and partnering with asset managers which are interested in entering the ETF market through HANetf’s platform. Last week, the company collaborated with the asset manager GinsGlobal for the launch of its UCITS ETF.
With 16-years of experience, El-Hakim joins the company from Invesco where he was head of business development and sales for Asia-Pacific and Middle-East ETF markets. He also held similar positions for the likes of Source ETFs, HSBC, ABN AMRO and Bear Stearns.
Hector McNeil, co-Founder and co-CEO of HANetf said “The growth of ETFs in Europe has been unprecedented and more asset managers see ETFs as a critical part of their future growth strategy.
“Faisal’s global experience in ETFs will be a significant advantage to our international client base as they prepare their European ETF entry. Strengthening our relationships with established asset managers will enable HANetf to deliver a full platform of ETFs covering all asset classes.”
