HANetf completes second oversubscribed funding round
February 6, 2019

HANetf, Europe's first independent ‘white-label' UCITS ETF platform, says it has completed its second oversubscribed funding round, bringing on a number of experienced industry figures.

This latest fundraise brings on board ThirdStream Partners, whose team led the world's largest quantitative investment management firm, Barclays Global Investors (BGI)/iShares and includes BGI's ex-CEO Blake Grossman, founder of ETF.com Jim Wiandt, and Roger Hodenius, co-founder of liquidity provider Flow Traders.

These new investors will join existing shareholders Point72 Ventures, owned by Steve Cohen, and Elkstone, a leading family office based in Ireland.

Following the first successful fundraise in December 2017, this latest round is aimed at taking advantage of current growth prospects and to expedite the development and growth of HANetf's platform including sales, distribution, product management, marketing and PR. HANetf says it expects to increase staff numbers by nearly 50 percent in 2019 and add around 10-15 ETFs per annum.

2018 saw HANetf launch its first three ETFs (EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet and Ecommerce ETF, HAN-GINS Cloud Technology ETF and HAN-GINS Global Innovative Technology ETF) on three major markets in London, Italy and Germany. 

HANetf adds that it provides the complete technical, regulatory and distribution infrastructure needed to successfully launch and manage UCITS ETFs without asset managers having to develop in-house infrastructure or incur a substantial cost base.
