Solactive has appointed Fabian Colin as the company’s new head of sales.
Colin will be in charge of institutional sales and will support Solactive’s expansion into new regions and target groups.
The decision was taken in order to cover the increasing demand for Solactive’s services. Solactive calculates over 3,500 indices and serves more than 300 clients globally. As of January 2017, approximately 250 ETFs are linked to indices calculated by the company.
Steffen Scheuble (pictured), CEO of Solactive, says: “I am very happy we have gained an experienced businessman such as Fabian to lead our sales department. He will play a crucial role in expanding and responding to the growing demand for cost-efficient index solutions seen in the investment space. I am confident Fabian’s arrival marks a new chapter of growth and business opportunities for Solactive and our customers.”
Colin brings to the company more than a decade of sales experience in the financial sector. From 2006 to 2016, he worked at Deutsche Bank and managed a sales team for structured products. This experience enabled him to develop in-depth knowledge of the financial industry, sales strategies and customer management.
“In recent years Solactive has developed an excellent name in the financial industry and has been successful at winning and retaining many important customers. Considering the growing demand for passive investment products and the regulatory changes affecting the indexing industry, it is important to align our clients’ needs with the opportunities arising from these changes,” says Colin.
