HANetf appoints ETF sales chief for Italy

Borsa ItalianaHANetf has appointed Edoardo Passaretti to the newly-created role of sales director for exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in Italy.

In his role at the firm, which describes itself as Europe’s first independent white label ETF platform, Passaretti will oversee the distribution of funds on the HANetf platform to institutions, asset managers, wealth managers, banks, advisors and intermediary platforms throughout Italy.

He joins HANetf from ETF Securities where he spearheaded Italian sales of commodity, currency, strategic beta, thematic, short and leveraged products.

Passaretti will report to Hector McNeil, co-founder and co-chief executive of HANetf, who said “Italy is one of the most open ETF markets in Europe and has made significant strides both at the institutional and retail ends of the market.

“Edoardo brings an extensive network of Italian investors which we will leverage strongly following our first ETF listing on Borsa Italiana.”
