Rize up for thematic ETFs
Europe has its first self-styled specialist thematic ETF issuer, Rize ETF, launched by the team behind Canvas, that brought the first purpose-built thematic ETFs to Europe. Rize ETF will focus on thematic ETFs, offering investors exposure to emerging megatrends.
Rize ETF was founded in May 2019 by a veteran ETF team with 30 years of experience between them: Rahul Bhushan (pictured), Stuart Forbes, Anthony Martin and Jason Kennard. The team previously built and managed the ETF platform for Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) that was acquired from ETF Securities in March 2018.
