HANetf’s Appoints Tranche of Service Providers To Support On-Platform Fund Clients

  • HANetf further expands ecosystem of expert ETF service providers
  • Penserra and Vident to provide portfolio management service option to on-platform fund clients
  • HSBC added to list of market makers
  • Barriers to European ETF market lowered by Europe’s first independent white-label platform

London, 20 September 2018 – HANetf, Europe’s first independent ‘white-label’ UCITS ETF platform, is pleased to confirm a raft of new service provider appointments ahead of looming ETF launches. HSBC joins HANetf’s expanding list of APs and Penserra Capital Management LLC and Vident Investment Advisory, LLC, have been appointed to provide portfolio management services to funds on the HANetf white-label platform.

Vident and Penserra are both highly experienced in providing portfolio management and sub-advisory support to ETFs across asset classes and strategies, and bring deep knowledge in balancing the multiple objectives of maintaining low tracking error, tax efficiency and liquidity in diverse, global portfolios.

The companies were selected following an exhaustive due diligence process and further add to the ecosystem of world-class service partners supporting the HANetf platform which provides a full operational, regulatory and distribution for asset managers who want to successfully launch and manage UCITS ETFs. 

HANetf clients will be able to take advantage of this continually expanding expert ecosystem as they join and issue ETFs through the platform, rather than developing their own networks and relationships from scratch.

Nik Bienkowski, co-Founder and co-CEO at HANetf, said: “HANetf has brought a unique proposition to the European ETF market – enabling asset managers with no ETF experience or infrastructure to enter this high-growth industry though a full-service white-label solution. The appointment of Penserra and Vident adds to HANetf’s extensive network of expert service providers, giving asset managers confidence knowing that their UCITS ETFs will be supported by portfolio managers deeply familiar with the requirements of ETF issuers and investors.”

Dustin Lewellyn, Chief Investment Officer at Penserra said: “We are excited to partner with HANetf to help bring a best in class portfolio management solution to their platform.”

Denise Krisko, President of Vident Investment Advisory commented:  "Vident is pleased to be partnering with such a distinguished team of experts at HANetf.  We look forward to applying our ETF sub-advisory expertise to HANetf UCITS ETFs and providing highly effective service to HANetf clients."
