Alpha FMC launches dedicated ETF & Indexing Practice


Alpha FMC (Alpha), a specialist in asset and wealth management consulting, has launched a dedicated ETF & Indexing Practice. Marc Knowles has joined as a Director to lead the practice, which will focus on servicing Alpha’s clients across the industry. 

Alpha already plays a central role in helping its clients transform their business models and respond to ever-changing client demands and technical innovations. The ETF & Indexing Practice has been formed to help Alpha’s clients develop and implement winning strategies to benefit from the increase of assets flowing into index strategies and ETFs.
Knowles started his career at Blackrock iShares where he was one of the first hires into the European ETF business in 2001. Over the next 13 years Marc held senior positions across the product, operations, capital markets and distribution functions. Knowles went on to lead the launch of BMO GAM’s ETF platform in Europe. Marc joins Alpha from KPMG where he led the ETF dedicated management consulting practice.
The launch of a dedicated ETF & Indexing Practice represents a key milestone in Alpha’s expansion strategy. Since its inception over 15 years ago, Alpha has grown rapidly; the firm has dedicated practices covering the full Asset and Wealth Management value chain and is now the leading global consulting firm to the industry.
Euan Fraser, Alpha FMC UK Chief Executive Officer, says: “We are very excited about the launch of our ETF & Indexing Practice. Exchange Traded Funds and index strategies are increasingly being adopted by asset managers looking to position their businesses for success in the next critical chapter for the industry. Marc has a fantastic reputation in the industry and is a great fit for Alpha. We expect to see strong demand in this space.”
Marc Knowles, Director and Head of ETF & Indexing Practice says: “I am very excited to join Alpha at this pivotal time for the asset management industry. Investors continue to allocate assets to low cost index strategies and ETFs that deliver transparency and value for money. Asset managers recognise this and are enhancing their product ranges to deliver their investment insights through lower cost index strategies and ETFs. I believe Alpha is uniquely placed to help its clients realise their ambitions in this space.”
