We have seen ETF assets grow four-fold since we re-established our presence in EMEA. We are committed to strengthening our ETF proposition, and Alexis’s appointment supports this strategy. He brings a wealth of experience and is a strong addition to the team.”
“The SPDR ETF business in EMEA is really gaining momentum now. It is currently second highest across Europe for inflows with nearly $2 billion year to date*.
