Rushe said: “I am pleased to be joining HSBC as the ETF market continues to grow. HSBC’s global scale, market expertise, focus on leveraging new technologies and the breadth of products within our markets and securities services business, will help ensure we continue to be the partner of choice for ETF issuers.”
