Expanding this ability and focusing on key strategic partnerships is a key goal of our business and Peter is one of the most skilled and experienced people in the market to take this effort to the next level.

“I’m delighted that Matt Johnson is joining the team at Source at such an exciting time in the evolution of Europe’s asset management industry. Matt has an unparalleled level of experience in both ETFs and asset management and his appointment signals our core strategic drive to convert institutional, wholesale and consumer clients from traditional collectives to ETFs.”
