Tuesday 05th March '19
WisdomTree, an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) and exchange-traded product (“ETP”) sponsor, is pleased to announce a partnership with Swissquote, Switzerland’s largest execution-only broker.
The partnership sees WisdomTree offer ten equity exchange traded funds (ETFs) with twenty-eight asset classes on the online execution-only platform. WisdomTree is one of the first ETP providers to partner with Swissquote in a bid to make ETPs more accessible to the Swiss retail market. Investors can trade each these ETFs for 9 Swiss Francs (CHF).
Commenting on the partnership, Frank Spiteri, Head of Distribution, WisdomTree said, “We are delighted to work with Swissquote. Retail appetite for ETPs has increased significantly in recent years, as investors seek highly liquid, cost-effective and transparent investment solutions. Furthermore, the recent changes in the regulatory environment have been supportive of ETP use.”
“We believe that our unique self-indexing methodologies and smart beta philosophy offers investors an improved approach to asset allocation. In each of the products available on Swissquote we seek to increase absolute and risk-adjusted returns relative to more traditional market cap-weighted ETF approaches. We continually push to build what we believe are better investments—those designed with smart engineering and thoughtful innovation—to meet the unique long- and short-term needs of Swiss investors.”
In addition to making of products available on the platform, WisdomTree will offer a range of educational material to investors who wish to trade ETPs. This includes the industry leading ETPedia, which provides investors with an unbiased reference to ETPs.
Enzo Piccolo, Head of Sales, Swiss DOTS & Platform, commented, “We are delighted to welcome WisdomTree as a new prime partner in Swissquote’s ETF Leader Section. By collaborating with WisdomTree we believe we’re providing an additional level of service to investors using our platform, helping them to achieve their investment goals in an increasingly complex global macro environment.”
