White-label ETF issuer HANetf has expanded its presence in Spain by passporting another 19 ETFs to cater to investor demand in the region.

Among those being passported are some of HANetf’s longer-standing products including the EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce UCITS ETF (EMQQ), HAN-GINS Tech Megatrend Equal Weight UCITS ETF (ITEK) and the iClima Global Decarbonisation Enablers UCITS ETF (CLMA).

Others include ETFs targeting electric vehicle charging infrastructure, medical cannabis, the space industry, solar energy and the metaverse.

The new registrations take the total number of HANetf products passported to Spain to 35, with The Royal Mint Responsibly Sourced Physical Gold ETC (RMAU) and SparkChange Physical Carbon EUA ETC (CO2) part of the initial cohort of 16 strategies.

Hector McNeil, co-CEO and co-founder of HANetf, said: “Spanish investors increasingly want access to thematic ETFs. Spain is a vital and growing market that no pan-European ETF issuer can afford to ignore.

McNeil told ETF Stream: “We have had multiple requests from large Spanish platforms including Santander and La Caixa to passport. There was no drive for local listings but passporting instead.”

The firm’s ETF range now spans over 40 products listed in the UK, Germany, Italy and France – and registered to other regions such as Spain.

Last week, it launched a new product platform to offer clients a ‘one-stop-shop’ for crypto exchange-traded products (ETPs), from product build phase to regulatory approvals, seed capital, exchange listing, fund management, trading providing trading networks and distribution.
