iShares hires EMEA head of product development


iShares, the exchange-traded funds platform of BlackRock, has appointed Tom Fekete as head of product development in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) effective immediately.

Based in London, Fekete will report to Joe Linhares, head of iShares EMEA.
Fekete will be responsible for driving the expansion of iShares’ product range. He joins from Barclays Wealth where he was EMEA head of investment products and global head of FX advisory, a role he held from 2009 onwards. Fekete previously headed the structured solutions team at UBS preceding his promotion to lead the products and services distribution arm of the Swiss bank.
Linhares says: “Tom brings with him considerable industry knowledge and skill, paired with vast experience delivering solutions to a diverse range of clients. He joins the firm at a time when the exchange traded products industry, and the adoption of these products, is growing significantly in Europe with users including IFAs, insurance companies and pension funds. Developing and creating high quality, innovative products is key to supporting this growth.”
