HANetf has appointed Michael Srour as head of sales for French-speaking regions from First Trust.
In his new role, Srour will be responsible for driving growth across the white-label issuer’s range of exchange-traded products (ETPs).
He joins from First Trust where he was in the institutional ETF sales team for over a year, responsible for France, Switzerland and Monaco.
Commenting on the hire, Simon Dale, head of sales at HANetf: "We are delighted that Michael is joining the HANetf team as head of sales for French-speaking regions.
“Michael’s experience, enthusiasm and passion to deliver outcomes for clients makes him a great fit for HANetf.
“The French-speaking market is extremely important to HANetf and Michael will oversee our future growth in existing and new ETFs as our platform continues to grow.”
Srour added: “I am extremely excited to announce that I will be starting a new position as head of sales in charge of French-speaking Europe at HANetf.”
The appointment follows the firm’s decision to launch a defence ETF, the Future of Defence UCITS ETF (NATO), on the London Stock Exchange and Deutsche Boerse on 4 July.
It also cut fees on two ETFs, the HANetf S&P Global Clean Energy Select HANzero UCITS ETF (ZERO) and the Solar Energy UCITS ETF (TANN) on 1 June.
