Spa ETF Europe, a provider of exchange traded funds (ETFs), has appointed three senior sales directors in a bid to accelerate the expansion of its European business.
Ahmed Tabaqchali, Antonio Ferrandi and Mark Oestergard, who are all executive sales directors for their respective areas, will provide sales and customer service support for Spa’s launch of fundamental enhanced ETFs across Europe.
Tabaqchali has over 15 years’ experience in the US financial markets. He will be responsible for sales in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands, as well as the Middle East. He joins Spa ETF Europe from Al Mal Capital, where he was a capital markets advisor and was responsible for creating the Al Mal FALCON series of indices and ETFs.
Ferrandi will be responsible for new business in south-west Europe (Italy, Spain and Portugal). Before this appointment he held senior sales positions at JPMorgan and Société Générale, advising Italian private banks on complex equity and structured product solutions.
Oestergaard, who will be directing the Scandinavian region, moves to Spa from Danish equity broker Gudme Raaschou, where he was head of institutional equity sales.
The first set of Spa’s fundamental enhanced ETFs will be launched in the UK in September.
