BMO Global Asset Management launched its ETF range in Europe last year, building on its success as the fastest growing, and the second largest, provider of ETFs in Canada. Nine ETFs with an income generation focus, designed specifically for UK and European investors, were listed on the London Stock Exchange in November 2015. The equity suite of Income Leaders ETFs aims at delivering sustainable income, filtering companies for quality and dividend yield, thus reducing portfolio volatility. In the fixed income space, the global credit instruments aim at capturing yield in different maturity bands to enable precise portfolio positioning opportunities. Hedged instruments introduce additional protection from currency swings.
Rob Thorpe, Head of UK Intermediary at BMO Global Asset Management commented: “We are very proud of our track record of developing relevant, innovative and client-focused ETFs. Christine’s extensive ETF sales experience and understanding of investors’ requirements will be invaluable in supporting the ambitious growth plans we have for the business.”
