HANetf Joins the $1billion AUM European ETF Club


21st December 2020, London

HANetf, Europe’s first full services ‘white label’ UCITS ETF issuer, is pleased to confirm that it has exceeded $1 billion AUM as of 17th December 2020.  This AUM milestone represents yet another achievement for the HANetf platform, which has increased its assets by over 14 fold since the beginning of the year[1]. 

Hector McNeil, Co-CEO of HANetf said “HANetf started the year with 5 ETFs and $67million assets under management and will finish the year with 12 funds and over a billion dollars in assets.  This is testament to themes that are capturing the imagination of European investors and a team that can deliver.  In recent weeks we have seen phenomenal growth in products such as our Bitcoin ETC and our Emerging Markets ETF.

HANetf is the fourth ETF brand that Nik and I have set up together and we have reached the $1bn barrier multiple times now.  However, this is the quickest, highest average TER and the most rewarding and exciting ETF business we have embarked on. We set out to partner with companies with world leading intellectual property and content and provide them with all the spades and shovels needed to research, develop, set up, list, market and raise assets. I really believe HANetf has the best investment ideas, content, team and we are very excited by the future.”

HANetf was set up by Hector McNeil and Nik Bienkowski in 2018 to crush the barriers to entry to the European ETF market, by providing a comprehensive ETF product and distribution platform with the ability to issue a new UCITS ETF within 10 weeks.  This includes product development, operational, regulatory, distribution and marketing solutions for asset managers and business who want to successfully launch and manage ETFs and ETPs to leverage their existing brands and expertise. In 2020, HANetf has launched 7 new products to market including the world’s first carbon avoidance solutions ETF[2], a landmark gold ETC with The Royal Mint, the world’s first central counterparty cleared, an exchange traded Bitcoin ETP[3], and a host of modern thematic ETFs.  These include medical cannabis, which is Europe’s first cannabis related ETF[4], Europe’s first 5G and digital infrastructure ETF[5], North American midstream energy and the World’s first Shariah compliant global equity active ETF[6].  Lots of firsts, but this is just the start.
