London Stock Exchange (LSE) has promoted Michael Stanley to head of ETFs after over decade at the group.

Based in London, Stanley (pictured) will be responsible for managing both the listings and trading business as the group looks to develop its offering.

He first joined the business in 2012 as a business support analyst, entering the financial services industry for the first time.

Stanley later became ETF product specialist at LSE, before head of exchange-traded product (ETP) product development and later director of ETP product development in March 2021.

A spokesperson for LSE said: “Michael has over 10 years ETP industry experience working closely with trading participants and issuers at London Stock Exchange.

“His role spans managing both the listings and trading business. Michael has significant experience and knowledge in ETP market structure and continues to develop London Stock Exchange’s ETP offering.”

His promotion comes roughly a month after LSE appointed Fiona Bassett as CEO of FTSE Russell from DWS. Based in New York, she replaces Arne Staal, who is moving to another role within LSEG having had two years in the role.
