MSCI names new ETF vice president
MSCI has hired Tim Bradbury as vice president of ETF Client Coverage in Australia.
Based in Sydney, he reports to Michael Anderson, Executive Director and head of Client Coverage in Australia and New Zealand. In this new role, Bradbury will be responsible for driving visibility, awareness and usage of the MSCI indexes within the fast growing ETF market in Australia, with a special focus on retail distribution networks and SMSFs .
Before joining MSCI, Bradbury was managing director at ETF Consulting and ETF Portfolio Solutions, which he founded in 2010. Prior to that he was head of Investor Solutions at Barclays Capital in Australia, where he implemented and drove activity across structured products and asset management services.
Between 2000 and 2009, he held several senior positions at Barclays Global Investors (BGI) Australia Ltd., including head of BGI’s Retail, Multi Manager and Intermediary Business, and Co-head of iShares Australia.
In this latter role he was responsible for bringing the iShares brand to Australia and launching the first international ETFs on the ASX. Bradbury’s earlier career was at Macquarie Bank focusing on equity-based investment products.
“We are thrilled that someone of Tim’s caliber and experience in the ETF industry has joined MSCI in Australia,” said Anderson. “This appointment marks our continued commitment to service client investment process needs across a very broad number of client segments, including asset managers, sovereign wealth funds, superannuation funds, pension consultants, broker dealers and now retail channels.”
“MSCI is very committed to the ETF market in Australia, whether onshore or offshore,” added Theodore Niggli, Head of MSCI Indexes in Asia Pacific. “Over the last 15 years Tim has gained deep expertise of the ETF market in Australia so he is very well placed to help expand MSCI’s index franchise in this fast growing market.”
