WisdomTree appoints Head of Research in Europe


WisdomTree, an exchange-traded fund (ETF) and exchange-traded product (ETP) sponsor, has appointed Christopher Gannatti as Head of Research for WisdomTree in Europe.

In his role Gannatti will lead a four-strong analyst team comprised of Nick Leung, Associate Director and Florian Ginez, Senior Quantitative Associate at WisdomTree responsible for macroeconomic analysis and formulating investment strategies and trade ideas, as well as Nitesh Shah, Director and Aneeka Gupta, Associate Director who have joined from ETF Securities.  He will ensure that clients receive up-to-date, expert insight into global macroeconomic and asset class specific developments, and will also support the UCITs platform globally. He will work closely with WisdomTree investors to educate on equity markets, commodities, foreign exchange, fixed income and ETPs generally, reinforcing WisdomTree’s position as a leader and innovator in the global ETP industry.
The move follows WisdomTree’s acquisition of ETF Securities’ European exchange-traded commodity, currency and short-and-leveraged business. Gannatti moves from WisdomTree’s headquarters in New York where he has worked since December 2010, initially as a Research Analyst, before being promoted to Associate Director in 2014. Prior to that he was a Regional Consultant at Lord Abbett for four and a half years.
David Abner, Head of WisdomTree Europe, says: “Gannatti is an exciting candidate for this role and his appointment reinforces our commitment to industry leading ETP research. This is a transformational time for WisdomTree as we add scale, diversification and profitability to our business in Europe with the acquisition of ETF Securities. We pride ourselves on providing clients with unique market insight to help educate and inform their investment decisions, and Christopher will play a pivotal role in enhancing our current research offering and overall strategy.”
Gannatti says: “I’m delighted to be joining WisdomTree in Europe at this exciting juncture. I look forward to ensuring we continue to provide our investors and partners with insightful, cutting edge research, and to deepening investors’ understanding of ETPs.”
