Invesco has strengthened its London-based ETF Business Development team with the appointment of Hamid Asseffar. Hamid reports to Ravinder Azad at Invesco and will focus on growing Invesco’s ETF business with UK asset managers and family offices.
Hamid joins Invesco from Amundi where he was a Sales & Marketing Associate within the ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta team. Prior to this role, he worked in the trading strategy team at Credit Suisse in London. Hamid holds a Masters in Financial Economics and Investment Management from EDHEC Business School.
Invesco has continued to expand its London – based ETF team across 2018. Most recently, the firm strengthened its ETF portfolio management team in September with two hires, Wayne Parker and Deepak Bharti, to help meet strong investor demand for fixed income ETFs.
Kate Dwyer, Head of UK ETF Business Development at Invesco, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Hamid to the ETF business development team. We are seeing strong, continued demand among our UK institutional clients, including asset managers and family offices, for our suite of low-cost ETFs and it is vital that we have the right people and capability to service this demand.”
