Vanguard establishes global ETF research team in London


Vanguard has appointed Marco Corsi as Head of Vanguard’s Global ETF Research Centre, a newly established team based in London dedicated to the study of ETFs and ETF investors. 

Vanguard writes that under Corsi’s leadership, the team will develop ETF-related research, perspectives, and content that will inform and educate institutional investors, retail intermediaries, and self-directed investors. 

The firm explains that ETFs are the fastest growing investment product in the world, with February 2018, seeing assets held in ETFs crossing the USD5 trillion barrier for the first time. This follows four consecutive years of inflows into ETFs. As at 31 July 2018, Vanguard ETFs totalled USD968.1 billion.

Corsi joins Vanguard from BlackRock, where he was most recently a Director at iShares responsible for the EMEA product research and innovation team. 

Axel Lomholt (pictured), Head of International ETFs, says: “We are establishing a dedicated research team to address critical global ETF issues to produce perspective that will be topical and insightful to investors, regulators, and influencers. As a global ETF leader, Vanguard looks forward to producing world-class research on this widely adopted investment product and its use by various types of investors.”

The firm writes that the London-based research team will collaborate with Vanguard’s other research groups around the world. Vanguard Center for Investor Research, which examines the behaviour of individual investors, distributed earlier this year its publication, How America Saves.
