DeAWM hires Dodd Kittsley to lead ETP strategy in the Americas


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) has appointed Dodd Kittsley as a managing director and head of exchange-traded product (ETP) strategy in the Americas.

Based in New York, Kittsley will report to Fiona Bassett, head of the passive business in the Americas, and Mick McLaughlin, head of passive distribution in the Americas.
In this newly-created position, Kittsley will be responsible for DeAWM’s ETP research in the Americas. He will also be responsible for generating new national account business and providing sophisticated, innovative solutions for both institutional and retail clients.
“We are very committed to the growth of our passive platform,” says Jerry Miller, head of DeAWM in the Americas. “As we expand our product offering in the US, we are focused on broadening our reach and strengthening our position as a thought leader in the passive industry.”
Kittsley is the latest strategic senior hire by DeAWM as it pushes to further expand its product offerings, increase outreach to current and future investors, and continue to build its market share in the Americas. Kittsley’s appointment also builds on the success of DeAWM’s China A-shares Fund, which has more than doubled in size since its November 2013 launch.
“We are thrilled to have Dodd on board,” says Bassett. “His deep relationships with national accounts will play a critical role in expanding our ETP platform in the Americas.”
Kittsley has more than 15 years of industry experience. Most recently, he was the global head of ETP research for BlackRock, providing insight on the global ETP marketplace through its monthly ETP Landscape newsletter and other regular and customized research. Kittsley was previously head of due diligence for iShares, a global provider of ETPs. Prior to joining BlackRock, Kittsley held research and fund due diligence positions at State Street Global Advisors and Morgan Stanley.
