Tabula Investment Management has appointed Mandy Chiu as its head of product after she left State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) in December.

Chiu (pictured) joins having spent six years at SSGA, most recently as head of EMEA and APAC ETF product.

In her new role, she will be responsible for building on the firm’s product growth over 2021 after it surpassed $650m in assets under management (AUM).

Chiu will work closely with Tabula CIO Jason Smith and Andy Baker who drive product and portfolio development, with a “strong pipeline of product launches” for 2022 in place.

During her time at SSGA, Chiu oversaw landmark moments since joining in 2016, including the launch of the $5.7bn SPDR Bloomberg SASB U.S. Corporate ESG UCITS ETF (SPPU) in October 2020, which has gone on to become the firm’s second-largest ETF available in Europe.

She was also head of ETF product for Europe and Asia as SSGA’s global assets under management (AUM) soared 23% over 2021.

Starting her career in ETFs at Taiwan’s largest security house and ETF provider, Yuanta Securities, Chiu spent a year as a financial advisor and stockbroker.

Following this, she spent three years as a capital markets and product analyst at ETF Securities, before moving to HSBC Asset Management to become associate director of ETF product structuring and research.

Her last role before SSGA was a return to ETF Securities between 2012 and 2016 as director of product strategy.

Commenting on the appointment, Michael John Lytle, CEO of Tabula, said: “We are delighted that Mandy has joined Tabula, she is a highly experienced ETF professional with a knowledge of building successful ETF businesses. With Mandy’s experience, we are building on our ability to bring new and innovative ETF solutions and exposures to investors.”
