When you trade ETFs, your capital is at risk.
Hector McNeil, co-founder and co-CEO at HANetf said “Most of the ETFs we are initially offering are firsts in the Swiss market and we have already seen significant demand from Swiss investors who have pushed us hard to bring these ETFs to the mass market.
With HANetf, asset managers can plug in to an extensive pre-existing distribution infrastructure, supported by on-the-ground sales teams which encompass all major ETF markets and platforms.
This significantly reduces the time, cost and complexity of developing these relationships on their own.
In addition, we see megatrend ETFs as being particularly well suited to the Swiss wealth management market as they are typically highly differentiated and target long-term social or technological trends that have seen high growth in recent years.”
