“We are delighted to have advised Roundhill in navigating the authorisation process, listing process and UCITS ETF ecosystem to bring its highly successful range of independent US ETF products to a European investor base through a UCITS compliant Irish Collective Asset-management Vehicle. We wish Roundhill continued success in growing its global business following its successful entry into the highly competitive European market.”
