HANetf Confirms Barclays Capital as Authorised Participant

London, July, 2019 HANetf, Europe’s first independent ‘white label’ UCITS ETF platform confirms that Barclays Capital has been appointed as Authorised Participant (AP) for its range of on-platform funds.

Barclays Capital joins an extensive network of leading global banks and market making firms with extensive track records supporting the trading needs of ETF investors.

HANetf continues to expand its range of APs to develop one of the most comprehensive AP and market making networks in the European ETF market. HANetf operates an open market making model, designed to promote deeper liquidity and competitive two-way pricing for on-platform ETFs.

HANetf’s asset management clients are able to take advantage of this extensive panel of APs and market makers as they join and issue ETFs on the platform. Asset managers who would otherwise set up their own ETF capability would face the time and cost impact of having to set up their own AP network from scratch.

Jason Griffin, Director of Business Development and Capital Markets at HANetf, commented on the appointment: “HANetf’s full-service proposition includes extensive capital markets, distribution and marketing support. We are very happy to welcome Barclays Capital to HANetf’s network of APs, promoting deeper liquidity across our fund range and helping investors benefit from greater market access. Prospective ETF issuers will take confidence that when they issue funds through HANetf, they benefit from an extensive and expanding ecosystem of liquidity providers with tremendous ETF experience.”

Founded by co-CEOs, Hector McNeil and Nik Bienkowski, HANetf provides a full service offering to prospective ETF issuers including ETF product development, support, operations, capital markets, sales, marketing and distribution. The HANetf platform removes the barriers to entry for new entrants to the European ETF market, making it faster, easier and more cost-efficient for asset managers to launch ETFs in Europe.
