Frank Henze named head of SPDR exchange-traded funds, Asia Pacific


State Street Global Advisors has appointed Frank Henze to the newly-created role of head of exchange-traded funds, Asia Pacific.

Based in Hong Kong, Henze has oversight of SSgA’s regional ETF expansion strategy, with a focus on increasing the size and visibility of SSgA’s range of SPDR ETFs in Asia Pacific.

He reports to Bernard Reilly, head of SSgA’s business in Asia Pacific, and James Ross, senior managing director and global head of exchange-traded funds at State Street Global Advisors.

“Frank’s addition to the growing ETF team in the region is a significant sign of our dedication to expanding this business,” says Reilly. “His vast experience in strategic planning and product development will drive the expansion of our ETF team as well as our SPDR product footprint in Asia Pacific, and we’re excited to have him on-board.”

Henze joins SSgA from HSBC where he was responsible for global ETF product development. Prior to this experience, he spent five years with iShares in Europe, where he last served as European head of product development.
