WisdomTree has appointed a new head of UK and Nordic sales and has made two hires to its UK sales team.
Ravinder Azad joined WisdomTree as head of UK and Nordic sales on Monday (13 January), having spent the past 12 years as UK ETF business development director at Invesco ETFs.
In his new role, he will be responsible for driving WisdomTree's sales and business development efforts across the UK and Nordics, which includes strategic planning, strengthening existing relationships and broadening its investor base.
At Invesco ETFs, Azad was behind the building and development of the Invesco PowerShares business in the UK and its alternative weighted index strategies. Prior to that, he was part of the Invesco Perpetual investment trust sales team.
WisdomTree also announced the appointments of Sam Coppell and Cameron Trundle in sales support roles, effective 13 January, as it strengthens its UK sales team.
Coppell joins from BlackRock where he was an asset reconciliation analyst and Trundle was previously a sales manager at Last Word Media.
Alexis Marinof, head of WisdomTree Europe said: "We are delighted to have Ravi join our team. This is an important hire for us, as we increase our sales coverage across the UK and Nordics.
"He brings deep knowledge of the UK investment management industry, particularly within the ETF market and across a wide range of traditional and smart-beta ETP strategies."
Marinof added: "This wealth of experience allows Ravi to tackle varying investor challenges, enhancing our European sales capabilities."
