Peter Thompson has rejoined Goldman Sachs as a managing director and head of Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s (GSAM) European ETF business. Thompson is based in London and reports to Michael Crinieri, global head of the GSAM ETF business.
Thompson brings more than 17 years of experience in the ETF industry and previously served as founder, president and interim chief executive officer of Source ETF, an independent asset management firm. In this role, he developed a suite of ETFs and established Source as a prominent ETF provider in Europe before its sale to Invesco in 2016. Prior to that, Peter spent over 10 years in various trading roles in the Goldman Sachs Securities Division.
GSAM has become one of the fastest growing ETF issuers since launching the US ETF business in 2015. We look forward to building on this success as we expand our footprint in Europe.
Nick Phillips, Head of the International Retail Client Business for Goldman Sachs Asset Management, says: “We see strong demand in this category and are excited to bring an innovative and cost-efficient suite of products to European clients. This offering will complement our global, broad and deep expertise across asset classes and builds on the success of our fast growing US ETF business. Peter brings decades of experience and has been a pioneer in the European ETF market.”
