White-label ETF provider HANetf appoints compliance firm

Regulation, compliance HANetf, described as Europe’s first independent white label platform for ETFs, has appointed Carne Group to provide compliance services.

Carne’s remit spans compliance-related activities including designated persons, global registration and anti-money laundering services.

Nik Bienkowski and Hector McNeil founded HANetf to allow asset managers and other players that faced high barriers to entry to launch Ucits-regulated ETFs in Europe.

HANetf’s Irish-domiciled platform for new issuers includes help with product development, capital markets, sales and marketing, and distribution.

The firm announced a number of hires this year including Jason Griffin, previously of Source. 

In January it announced BNY Mellon would be its custodian.
