HANetf hires sales director
ETF white labelling firm HANetf has appointed David Patterson as Director, UK & Ireland Sales in the latest in a series of hires by the firm.
The firm writes that reporting to Hector McNeil (pictured), co-CEO of HANetf, David will be responsible for selling funds on the HANetf platform to UK and Irish clients as part of its comprehensive distribution and marketing solution.
Patterson brings over 30 years of industry experience, with 10 years dedicated to ETF distribution. He joins HANetf from Deutsche Asset Management where he held the position of Head of UK Wholesale Distribution, developing the UK coverage of Exchange Traded Products and Strategic Beta funds.
McNeil says: “HANetf is putting in place a formidable distribution team, which David will significantly enhance. The UK and Ireland will be core markets for HANetf as asset managers, financial advisers, wealth managers, private banks and brokerages across the region increase their adoption and use of ETFs.
“David’s considerable knowledge of the marketplace and understanding of investor needs adds to HANetf’s already powerful offering, reinforcing our unique proposition which combines a best-in-class ETF white-label platform with sophisticated distribution, sales and marketing services for clients.”
