Global X has hired Adam Sze as head of digital assets and crypto product from 21Shares.

Based in New York, Sze will be responsible for enhancing the firm’s digital assets initiatives globally.

Until May, Sze worked as director of ETP product at 21Shares, a role he held for four months after joining the firm last August to lead its ETP product team.

Prior to this, he spent more than 12 years at New York Life Investments including over five years as director of product development.

Sze will report to Alex Ashby, head of product development at Global X.

Ashby commented: “Adam brings over 15 years of experience in product development and product management to Global X, with in-depth knowledge of the rapidly evolving digital and cryptocurrency asset environment.”

Sze added: “Global X is extremely well-positioned to thoughtfully grow its involvement in the space, particularly as the firm looks to expand its lineup of products capturing the digital assets theme as well as its offering of physically-backed cryptocurrency ETPs in Europe.”

The firm’s last hire was Laura Kearny as EU head of legal from Arthur Cox in March. 

In the same month, it launched its first crypto ETPs in Europe, the Global X Bitcoin ETN (BT0X) and the Global X Ether ETN (ET0X).
