Invesco Powershares appoints head of product development EMEA


Invesco PowerShares, a provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), has appointed Nicolas Samaran as head of product development EMEA.

Samaran’s appointment is part of the ongoing programme from the provider of Intelligent ETFs to expand its team within key markets in Europe.
In this newly created role, Samaran will work closely with Lorraine Wang, global head of ETF products and research, and Bryon Lake, head of Invesco PowerShares EMEA, to develop a range of ETFs for the European market.  His responsibilities will include product-line design such as researching, developing and project managing new product ideas and product line enhancements.

His expertise and specialist knowledge of the industry is a great asset to our team, and as the ETF market continues to expand in Europe, we are committed to developing our team to best support new and existing product development.”
