About us

The original white-label innovators, providing new and innovative investment solutions.

HANetf is an independent ETF and ETC specialist. We work with asset managers from around the world to bring new and innovative investment solutions to Europe via our white-label platform.

Our Story

HANetf was founded by two of Europe’s leading ETF pioneers, Hector McNeil and Nik Bienkowski. Hector and Nik have been a dynamic force in the ETF industry for over 17 years, establishing and building successful companies including ETF Securities, Boost ETP and WisdomTree Europe.

In 2017, Hector and Nik started HANetf to provide a full white-label operational, regulatory, distribution, and marketing solution for asset managers looking to launch and manage UCITS ETFs and ETCs in Europe. HANetf has since launched a wide range of products including Europe’s first gold ETC sponsored by The Royal Mint, the first Bitcoin ETP on Deutsche Borse Xetra, and a range of thematic ETFs focusing on themes such as defence, uranium mining, emerging markets, and more.

Our Values

Our company has been built, in part, by doing what others may have considered impossible, or may never have imagined at all – a simple and transformative idea – to remove the barriers asset managers face when launching an ETF or ETC Europe.

Swift

At HANetf, we are always looking to pioneer new investment solutions. Our unparalleled speed to market has resulted in many firsts, including the first ever gold ETC sponsored by The Royal Mint, the first centrally cleared Bitcoin product on Deutsche Borse Xetra, and the first cloud technology ETF – to name a few.

Pioneering

Our expert product development team is always looking to stay ahead of the curve. With thorough market research, and exceptional due diligence, we partner with industry experts from around the globe to create disruptive investment solutions.

Responsible

We create innovative solutions that align with your values. Whether it’s responsibly sourced recycled gold, or ESG screens, or SFDR 8 and 9 classifications – investors no longer need to compromise on standards.

Our Leadership Team

Meet the team supporting our extraordinary vision. We are led by industry veterans, who have been pioneering exciting ETP solutions for decades.
