London Stock Exchange welcomes Rize ETF celebrating the launch of Rize Medical Cannabis and Life Sciences UCITS ETF and Rize Cybersecurity and Data Privacy UCITS ETF

Rize ETF was founded in 2019 by Stuart Forbes, Anthony Martin, Rahul Bhushan and Jason Kennard. The team of proven ETF experts bring over 30 years of combined ETF experience, having previously built and managed the ETF platform for Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) that was acquired from ETF Securities in March 2018.

The team at Rize ETF is committed to challenging orthodoxy and providing investors with access to the most ground-breaking megatrends shaping the planet. The team pioneered the approach of working with sector-specific experts to develop highly innovative themed-based exposures that can be wrapped into an ETF. They launched Europe’s first Robotics ETF in 2014 and, the following year, Europe’s first Cybersecurity ETF – each of which has attracted assets of over $1bn.

The Rize ETF team sees itself as appealing to a new generation of investors that have global perspectives and a less siloed approach to investing. Its focus on thematic ETFs will allow it to accelerate the launch of timely, relevant and accessible investment products.
