Press Release | HANetf exceeds $2billion assets under management as AUM grows by over 85% since the start of 2021
HANetf, Europe’s first full
services ‘white label’ UCITS ETF issuer, is delighted to confirm that it has
exceeded $2 billion assets under management (AUM) as of 19thth February 2020. HANetf has now reached £2.22billion AUM, an
increase of over 85% in eight weeks since the beginning of 2021.
On the spectacular AUM growth,
Co-CEO of HANetf, Hector McNeil, said: “With increased
volatility in Bitcoin, we have seen phenomenal demand for BTCE, our exchange
traded Bitcoin ETC which has just surpassed $1billion assets under management. Institutional investors are now taking
Bitcoin seriously and seeing it as a safe haven and rushing to products like
BTCE that offer access to Bitcoin with all the regulatory protections of an
exchange trade product. Global investors
are flocking to Bitcoin ETFs like BTCE as other Bitcoin access instruments such as US Trusts and
futures can often trade at significant premiums.
We have also seen increased flows across the board into
our thematic ETFs such as the HAN-GINS Tech Megatrend Equal Weight UCITS ETF ITEK, an ETF that offers equal weight
across 8 mega trend, disruptive tech categories from future cars to digital
entertainment which recently hit $100m AUM.
Our recently launched iClimaGlobal Decarbonsiations Enablers ETF is seeing flows as investors
push towards ESG products and with political power in the US now in Democratic hands, the path is now clear
for further cannabis reform in the US, resulting in demand for CBDX, TheMedical Cannabis and Wellness UCITS ETF that we launched in January
2020. CBDX became the first European cannabis ETF to break through the $50m AUM
"What is most exciting is that we have 10+ ETFs that we
expect to launch in the first half of the year. Some are global and European
firsts. We set out to be the ‘valued added ETF issuer’ offering differentiated
products with a view to offering market leading asset managers, brands with
great intellectual property to gain time and cost efficient entry to the UCITS
ETF market. This landmark proves the tyres have been well and truly kicked on
the model. Our end vision of being the World’s first multi manager ETF platform
is well underway.”
