European exchange-traded fund turnover rose by 120 per cent in the 12 months to 30 April 2009, according to research by iShares.

As a proportion of total trading activity, ETFs have risen from 2.8 per cent to 10.8 per cent during the same period, while trading volumes for underlying equities and futures have declined significantly.

Nizam Hamid, head of sales strategy for iShares Europe, says: "Our findings show ETFs now feature as a consistently higher proportion of total trading activity in Europe. This sustained growth in turnover against a backdrop of weak market conditions and generally lower trading levels in cash equities and futures shows a strong indication of investors’ preference for ETFs."
