ETFmatic hires new regulation and legal chief

ETFmatic has strengthened its European ETF team with the appointment of Justinian Boghici as Head of Legal and Regulatory.

Formerly of law firm Clifford Chance, Justinian previously advised banks, financial institutions and investment firms on issues associated with the impact of the European Union’s financial services regulation, and regulatory capital requirements on securities and derivatives transactions in the financial sector.

He will be leading the Legal & Regulatory functions in his new role at ETFmatic, as the London based robo advisor has been consolidating and growing its team which now includes 15 people.

Luis Rivera, CEO of ETFmatic: said: “Justinian’s cross-border legal and regulatory experience, business acumen and understanding of the fintech space is a unique blend of skills in this fast and constantly developing robo-advice market. His appointment will enable ETFmatic to consolidate the regulatory side of our tech and regulatory stack, as we forge ahead with our aggressive growth plans this year.”

ETFmatic has had a strong year of growth and clocked up some meaningful milestones. Back in August it revealed its app had been downloaded more than 100,000 times, in July it announced a tie-up with the enormously popular banking challenger Revolut and also found time to slash its fees. Its fees are currently 0.48 per cent per year for portfolios with AUM up to GBP/EUR/USD 25,000, and 0.29 per cent for those with AUM of GBP/EUR/USD 25,000 and above.
