Investor demand underpins further expansion at ETF Securities

Former Shaw and Partners investment advisor joins the growing ranks at ETF Securities as sector inflows surge

SYDNEY, April 29 – ETF Securities has responded to continuing growth in the sector by increasing staff numbers with the hiring of former Shaw and Partners investment advisor Andrew Duncan.

“The market for Exchange Traded Products has now topped $45 billion, representing annual growth of 26%. Our own dynamic growth as a company reflects our commitment to be a market leader and innovator” said ETF Securities Chief Executive Kris Walesby.

Mr Duncan joins ETF Securities as a Business Development Manager from Shaw and Partners where he assisted with the growth in FUM and revenue through client acquisition and developing new relationships across advisers, dealer groups and platforms.

“I am excited to be coming on board at ETF Securities at a significant time in its development” said Mr Duncan. “I will look to leverage my experience with a client base spanning Australia to bring extra energy and acumen to what is already a high-performing team.”

His start today at ETF Securities follows the arrival in late 2018 of former triple jump British Olympian and Commonwealth champion Larry Achike, who is also a key member of the Business Development team.

ETF Securities now has a product range featuring 14 funds and the firm boasts funds under management close to $1.2 billion.

“The business has increased staff numbers by 50% in the past 12 months alone. That’s because we know that acquiring and nurturing the right talent is what will keep us relevant to our clients in a rapidly evolving market” said Mr Walesby.
