WisdomTree appoints head of compliance in Europe


Exchange traded fund (ETF) and exchange traded product (ETP) provider WisdomTree has appointed Altaf Cassam in the newly-created head of compliance role at WisdomTree in Europe.

Cassam joins WisdomTree from Aberdeen Asset Management where he was a MiFID II consultant.
He brings almost 15 years’ experience in the financial services industry, with 10 years’ experience specifically in regulation and compliance. Cassam has held senior positions at Ernst & Young, Pioneer, Threadneedle and Natixis.
Cassam will be based in London and responsible for all European compliance operations. He will report to Bryan Governey, WisdomTree general counsel in Europe.
Dave Abner, head of WisdomTree in Europe, says: “Altaf is an excellent addition to our company, and we’re very pleased to welcome him to WisdomTree. Regulation and compliance are core to how we do business, and – as we continue our expansion across Europe – is increasingly important in ensuring we meet our investors’ needs.” 
Cassam says: “I’m delighted to join a company that views compliance as an integral function that contributes to business success. WisdomTree has a fantastic culture with a clear ambition, and I look forward to bolstering the company’s robust framework and collaborating with international colleagues to ensure we’re well positioned to respond to a shifting regulatory environment.”
