Forefront launches global ETF strategies business


Forefront Advisory, a trading and advisory firm headquartered in New York, has launched an exchange-traded funds investment advisory service.

The announcement reflects Forefront’s move to capitalize on the growth in the ETF space over the last year, showing 44 per cent growth in value since October 2008.

Dan Faucetta and Dan Weiskopf have joined Forefront Advisory to lead this business. They come to Forefront from UBS, where they have managed ETF-focused portfolios since 2004. They are actively seeking to market the Forefront Advisory global ETF strategies business more widely.

Brad Reifler, chief executive of Forefront Advisory, says: “We are delighted to have attracted two such experienced and knowledgeable strategists to join Forefront Advisory. ETFs are an important foundation stone of the Forefront offering, and Dan Faucetta and Dan Weiskopf will be integral members of our team, bringing their years of experience and understanding of ETFs, to the benefit of the entire Forefront community. This is an ever-growing space and we will aggressively seek to develop this business in the coming months and years.”

The team will advise clients who are active investors such as Forefront instividuals, hedge fund managers and institutional traders. They will be seeking to grow their business, targeting investors and fiduciaries involved in endowments/foundations, family offices and 401Ks seeking third party independent analysis of differing structures and fund families.
