WisdomTree Europe celebrates 1st anniversary of European UCITS ETF platform launch

WisdomTree, the exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) and exchange-traded product (“ETP”) sponsor celebrates the one-year anniversary of the launch of its European UCITS ETFs platform with assets under management having grown by almost 300%1. In an industrious year of accomplishments, the firm listed products on five major exchanges across Europe and deepened its distribution capabilities through important hires in sales, product development, operations and capital markets.

WisdomTree Europe has launched its unique range of smart beta WisdomTree UCITS ETFs across the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany and Switzerland. Most of these ETFs are dividend-weighted, high-yield strategies that may be beneficial from a portfolio construction perspective in today’s low interest rate environment. The UCITS ETFs range also includes a number of currency-hedged share classes, based on WisdomTree’s flagship US-listed strategies.

The company also continues to grow the Boost ETP product range, offering differentiated short and leverage products in equities, fixed income, currencies and commodities. During the course of the year, Boost has grown to achieve the No. 1 value-traded (turnover) market share in short and leveraged exchange-traded notes (“ETNs”) on Borsa Italiana, further establishing the company’s credentials in creating innovative and successful solutions for clients. In Europe AUM and trading volumes in Boost products are rising faster than any other European short and leverage provider.

WisdomTree Europe now boasts a leadership team with ETF and asset management experience from some of the largest asset managers in Europe.

Hector McNeil, Co-CEO of WisdomTree Europe comments:
“WisdomTree Europe’s first year has been truly momentous. The success of WisdomTree over the past year has demonstrated the benefits of bringing differentiated ETP strategies to Europe. We have also listened closely to our clients and this has helped us build uniquely innovative solutions that deliver value to our growing Pan-European investor base. It is a testament to the quality of the firm’s product development, research, marketing, and distribution expertise that we have been able to successfully launch and grow such a wide range of ETFs and ETPs over the course of the past year.

With the work that has been done, we believe we have laid a solid foundation and are well-positioned for future growth. We will continue to focus on strengthening our position in the ETP industry”.
