EMQQ is the UCITS version of the Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce ETF listed in New York with $496 million in assets under management (AuM).[4] This marked the first time that HANetf brought a US-listed ETF to Europe -an innovative first step for HANetf’s white-label service.

Since then HANetf has turned approximately 10 US ETFs into Irish-domiciled UCITS ETFs. The white-label model allows US asset managers to enter the European market quickly and cost-effectively. The European ETF market has seen strong growth and is expected to reach $2.5 trillion AUM by 2025 -HANetf allows asset managers in the US to meet that demand.

Since the launch of EMQQ HANetf has launched 35 ETPs and has been first-to-market in Europe with 14 themes demonstrating the continued commitment to innovation and providing new and exciting opportunities to European investors.

Hector McNeil Co-CEO and Co-Founder of HANetf comments: “We are delighted to be celebrating the 5th anniversary of EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce UCITS ETF (ticker: EMQQ). EMQQ was the first UCITS ETF launched by HANetf and allowed us to demonstrate our white-label model’s ability to turn US-listed ETFs into Irish-domiciled UCITS ETFs quickly and cost-effectively -something we have now repeated numerous times.

“The ETF’s launch was an important milestone for HANetf and set the stage for 35 subsequent launches on our platform. We look forward to seeing the continuation of EMQQ’s growth in the coming years.”
