Dominik Schmaus


Growth of team in response to high demand for innovative ETF products and underpins European growth strategy

VanEck is expanding its European ETF business with the appointment of Dominik Schmaus as a new product manager. Schmaus will work with the team to develop innovative products and help to expand the range of products for European clients. He is joining VanEck from Deka Investment GmbH, where he gained numerous years of experience in developing and implementing exchanged-listed index funds as a member of the ETF product management team.

“Both institutional and retail investors remain very interested in ETFs, and we are observing increasing demand in all countries. In appointing Dominik Schmaus, we are reacting to the rising demand for innovations within this product class,” said Torsten Hunke, managing director at VanEck. “His many years of experience will be a great asset for our product management team. We will be able to build on his expertise, particularly in product development and implementation, and benefit from his relationships with market decision-makers, stock exchanges and trading desks.” By adding to the European ETF product management team, VanEck Europe aims to continually expand its product range with creative and intelligent solutions and realise its ongoing growth ambitions.

“I look forward to the new challenge at VanEck of expanding the ETF portfolio of a world leading ETF provider with client-focussed products,” added Schmaus. He has a bachelor's degree in business administration with a focus on finance from the Universities of Applied Sciences in Munich, Germany and Saimaa, Finland.
