Global X ETFs adds three to European business
Global X ETFs has added three new hires to its European business, including the key appointment of George Taylor who joins as Head of Capital Markets for Global X ETFs with responsibility for primary and secondary market structure as well as investor implementation in ETFs.
Prior to joining Global X, he was Head of ETF Capital Markets at HSBC Global Asset Management.
In addition, Magdalena Kowalik joins as a Capital Markets Analyst working alongside Taylor, joining from the London Stock Exchange, where she performed several roles in the Capital Markets team, while Hannah Waldron joins the UK Sales team responsible for distribution efforts within the UK joining from an analytics team at Sainsburys. Prior to that, she worked within the distribution teams at Artemis fund managers and Neptune investment management, covering UK wealth managers and discretionary fund managers.
These new roles complement the key hires announced in December, including Rob Oliver, who joined as Head of Business Development for Global X ETFs in Europe and Morgane Delledonne who has been hired as Director of Research for Europe.
The firm announced its formal entrance to European markets in December with the launch of the Global X Video Games & Esports UCITS ETF (HERU) and the Global X Telemedicine & Digital Health UCITS ETF (EDOC) on the London Stock Exchange.
“George’s knowledge and experience will be instrumental in developing our capital markets capability and increasing interest from institutional investors,” says Rob Oliver, Head of Business Development in Europe.“ We welcome George, Magdalena and Hannah to the team.”
“I have closely followed Global X’s growth in their thematic product offering and capability in the US, and see a substantial opportunity to make available their expertise and track record to a wide cross-section of investors in Europe,” said George Taylor, Head of Capital Markets. “Thematic investing is still at an early stage in Europe and has huge potential for growth.”
