Europe’s white label ETF issuer HANetf has reached over USD250 million in assets raised for its clients, representing growth of 377 per cent since the start of 2020.

HANetf has five asset management clients and seven ETFs, having launched its first ETF in the fourth quarter of 2018. The range of ETFs from the firm include emerging markets internet and e-commerce; cloud computing; Kuwait; medical marijuana and gold, through the Royal Mint.

Looking forward, HANetf says it is in discussion with over 50 other managers about entering the European UCITS ETF/ETP space. 

Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Hector McNeil says: “We’re proud of the company and the team to have reached the milestone of USD250 million in AUM in just over a year since our first ETF launch. In doing so, we have demonstrated the unique power of the HANetf platform to transform the way asset managers can enter and succeed in the European ETF market. Before HANetf existed, asset managers faced significant barriers to launching and distributing ETFs due to the cost and complexity of the market; but these barriers have been systematically removed by HANetf’s full-service regulatory, operational and distribution infrastructure.”

Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Nik Bienkowski (pictured), says: “The European ETF industry is growing rapidly at a time when investors are withdrawing money from traditional funds. Having an ETF offering to access this distribution revolution was challenging for many asset managers – until the arrival of HANetf. Our team is one of the most experienced in the market and we have built, and continue to grow, a formidable sales, distribution and marketing capability that gives our clients instant scale and reach, enabling them to compete, succeed and win in the high-growth, competitive European ETF market.

“Our clients come from a variety of countries and backgrounds including the U.S., Canada, Kuwait and Britain; some are new to the ETF world, while others have established ETF businesses and have used HANetf to gain fast and efficient market entry to Europe. The European ETF market is likely to reach $2 Trillion in AUM in the near future, offering a huge opportunity to new entrants to take advantage of the distribution power of ETFs. HANetf will continue to be an important part of this growth by providing unique, innovative ETFs for modern portfolios.”
