XTF Global Asset Management, which specializes in actively managed asset allocation portfolios composed of exchange-traded funds, has appointed Melvin S Herman as its chief executive.

Herman, who has more than 30 years of experience in financial services, including 23 years with Oppenheimer & Co, will spearhead XTF’s continued growth in asset gathering, new product delivery and strategic partnerships.

‘Mel is absolutely the right person to lead our company forward,’ says Sander Gerber, XTF’s chairman and founder. ‘He has a demonstrated ability to work closely with clients, investors and third parties, manage strategic initiatives and grow businesses.

‘I’m confident that under his leadership, XTF will continue to enhance its unique market and leadership position, highlighted by its ETF ratings service, its lifecycle and lifestyle funds of ETFs and innovative products, such as its country and sector rotation portfolios.

‘Given the strength of our investment committee and my familiarity with XTF’s investment process and thesis, Mel will integrate seamlessly into our successful structure. Our performance continues to be strong as investors learn that the transparency and low-expenses associated with ETFs provides them with a better way to invest.’

Says Herman: ‘XTF is an innovative company in an exciting industry. The industry has grown in ways that we couldn’t have foreseen just a few years ago, such as using ETFs exclusively to build fully-diversified risk based and target date portfolios, as well as using ETFs in retirement planning and institutional products.’

Between 1977 to 1999, Herman served was managing director and treasurer, chairman of the management committee, and a member of the credit and operating committees at Oppenheimer, where he secured the capital and built a financial structure that was instrumental in the doubling of the firm’s revenues.

He was responsible for all of the firm’s domestic and international financing, securing short- and long-term capital to support the group’s business, managing the allocation of regulatory capital and liquidity to various production areas, and risk management.

Most recently, Herman was executive vice president and chief operating officer of Brean Murray, a full service broker-dealer, and BMI Capital, its investment advisor and asset management subsidiary, where he managed the daily administrative, sales and operational functions of the sales and trading, research, accounting, operations, legal and compliance, information technology, and human resources divisions.

XTF Global Asset Management, based in New York and founded in 2000, builds ETF portfolios designed to offer consistently strong risk-adjusted returns that outperform their benchmarks. The company also provides an ETF rating service to assist professional and individual investors in making investment decisions.
