Source appoints head of investment content


Source, a provider of European exchange-traded products, has appointed Nicolas Samaran to head up its overall product offering.

Reporting to Peter Thompson, head of distribution and strategy, Samaran (pictured) will have responsibility for the search for and selection of new and innovative investment content from external providers.
Source offers a number of partnerships with asset managers and solution providers. These partnerships include Man GLG, PIMCO, Legal & General Investment Management, Nomura and J.P. Morgan. The ETFs offered through these partnerships include products providing exposure to volatility, fixed income, broad-based commodities and smart beta outperformance.
Samaran’s focus will be to identify differentiated content, implement those strategies and weave it into the fold of Source’s existing product range. He joins from Man Investments where he was a senior member of the product structuring and financing group in Switzerland.

Prior to joining Man, Samaran was an executive director in the fund derivative structuring group at UBS Investment Bank in London. Samaran started his career at Commerzbank Securities in London where he worked in the fund derivative structuring team and before that as a fund derivative trader.
Thompson says: “We are delighted to have Nicolas joining us in order to bring an enhanced focus and deeper expertise to the product development process at Source. He will enhance the dialogue we have with our partners and the ETP market in general. We see a real opportunity to continue building and growing our business through the delivery of differentiated content.”
