Swiss fintech firm Amun has hired Mark Rodino as managing director and global head of distribution. The company is preparing to launch exchange-traded products (ETPs) in the cryptocurrency space.

Rodino joins the Switzerland firm as it works on a crypto-linked ETP on the Six Swiss Exchange.

Rodino has more than 25 years’ experience selling equities indices and ETFs for Morgan Stanley, UBS, HSBC and Deutsche Börse. In his new role he will be based in Zurich and responsible for sales to institutional investors, family offices, and online and app-based trading platforms.

“Amun has made incredible progress over the past 18 months in building the technological platform that underpins the launch of our first listed ETP,” said chief executive Hany Rashwan. “Mark’s experience and strategic vision will help us offer institutional and retail investors a very simple way to purchase crypto-currencies.”

Amun’s first ETP will track the price of a basket of the five most liquid cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, and Litecoin.
