ETF pioneer and industry expert, Manooj Mistry, joins HANetf as Chief Operating Officer

Manooj Mistry is a senior leader, who is credited with the launch of Deutsche Bank’s Xtrackers ETP business in 2007

HANetf, Europe’s first ‘white label’ ETF issuer, is pleased to announce that Manooj Mistry has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer (COO) as part of the company’s continued expansion. He joins HANetf at the beginning of March 2021.

An ETF pioneer and industry veteran, Mistry brings over 25 years of leadership in asset management and ETF business development as former CEO of DWS Investments UK Limited and Head of Xtrackers ETFs and Index Investing at DWS.

Reporting to Co-CEO, Nik Bienkowski, Manooj will lead the product development, operational and regulatory aspects of the HANetf business.

Co-Founder and Co-CEO of HANetf, Nik Bienkowski, commented: “Manooj joins us at a time of rapid expansion for the HANetf’s full-service white-label platform and we are thrilled to have on-board his deep expertise and knowledge of building successful ETF businesses. Manooj launched the Xtrackers ETP business at Deutsche Bank in 2007 and during his time oversaw the launch of over 400 UCITS ETFs and ETCs, creating the number two ETP provider in Europe.

Manooj has developed and launched many firsts to market, and his wealth of experience will be intrinsic in helping lead the way as we take HANetf from high growth, new entrant in the ETF space, to an ETF issuer with a deep product offering –one which will be the first multi-manager ETF platform in the world. The long-term goal for HANetf is to build out a ‘periodic table’ of ETP offerings across ESG, thematic, smart beta, active and niche strategies, covering the asset classes of equities, bonds, commodities and alternatives. This hire clearly shows HANetf is developing into a formidable European ETF player.”

Manooj’s appointment comes at a time of rapid expansion for HANetf that has seen it exceed $2 billion assets under management last week, an increase of over 85% in eight weeks since the beginning of 2021.
