A spokesman for Global X declined to comment on how Dillon's duties are being handled. And Dillon himself did not return a call for comment for this story.
At FTSE Russell, Dillon focuses specifically on the wealth advisory channel, working with FAs and RIAs.
"We work with all the major ETF providers. Their clients are FAs," so the wealth advisory channel team works to make sure key wealth management industry allies have tools and resources from FTSE Russell, Benedict tells MFWire
An alumnus of Ohio State University, Dillon held key mutual fund platform roles at Morgan Stanley and TD Ameritrade before joining
KraneShares (then Harvest Krane USA) in 2012 as a managing director of national key accounts and chief operating officer. He joined Global X a year ago, and he remains an equity owner in Krane Funds Advisors.
