It comes as the index provider looks to build on its European footprint following the acquisition of Moorgate Benchmarks last year.
Wright joins from Amundi, where she spent over three years as a senior salesperson in their ETF, index and smart beta team.
Prior to this, she spent a year and a half at Vanguard as a senior ETF sales specialist and also spent five years as a head of UK wealth and intermediaries at ETF Securities.
During her time at ETF Securities, she was responsible for educating and presenting the intermediary market to commodity exchange traded-products (ETPs) as an asset class and portfolio diversifier.
A Morningstar spokesperson said: “Liz joins Morningstar Indexes with a wealth of expertise in the European passive space, specifically the ETF market.
“We continue to make a very deliberate investment in our global footprint – with a special focus on Europe with our acquisition of Moorgate Benchmarks in 2021.”
