LGIM hires capital markets head for ETF business


Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) has appointed Annacarla Dellepiane as Head of ETF Capital Markets.

Dellepiane will be responsible for managing the implementation and execution of trades across LGIM’s ETF range on behalf of clients, partnering with market markets, broker-dealers, trading venues and data providers. Dellepiane will work closely with LGIM’s ETF portfolio management and distribution teams as the business seeks to grow its ETF business following the acquisition of Canvas – the European Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) platform formerly owned by ETF Securities – in March 2018. LGIM offers 29 ETFs, which are available to asset managers, and intermediary clients in the UK and Europe.
Dellepiane joins from State Street Global Advisors, where she was a lead relationship manager in the SPDR Capital Markets team. Prior to joining in 2016, Dellepiane worked in iShares EMEA capital markets division. During her career, Dellepiane has worked closely with various market participants on enhancing the performance and trading volumes of ETFs to ensure they trade efficiently, and ultimately ensure they are cost efficient. She has also worked closely with product strategy teams to support new fund launches and cross listings across different markets in Europe.
In this newly created role, Dellepiane will be based in London and will report to Simon Hynes, Head of Retail Distribution EMEA.
Hynes says: “Investor demand for ETFs is showing no sign of abating, and with this demand trading volumes are set to increase. Dellepiane brings an in-depth amount of knowledge which will be invaluable in helping our clients to trade our products efficiently to build portfolios which help them to achieve their investment goals.”
Dellepiane says: “LGIM’s move into the ETF market comes at an exciting time for the industry as more and more investors seek low-cost investment solutions. I’ve been thoroughly impressed by the team at LGIM and am excited to work with them to further build out the ETF business.”
