ETP activity comes back as markets return from lunar New Year break


On exchange activity in the Asia-Pacific region increased as most of the markets came fully back from the Lunar New Year break. Total ETP weekly turnover was up by 72% as compared to the previous week, totalling USD4.4bn, a bit lower (-8%) than last year’s weekly average, although still suggesting a significant increase in activity considering that China (the most active market by turnover) was closed for two days. Equity ETPs activity rose by 76%, totalling USD4.3bn.


With the Chinese mainland market partially open for the week, the Hong Kong market took the first place with a weekly turnover total of USD1.9bn, followed by the Chinese with USD760m.

Mixed market sentiment in the region and a rising US dollar shaved USD1.2bn in assets at the bottom line, shrinking the industry AUM by 1.4%. On a week over week basis, this week’s assets sat at USD84.1bn vs USD85.3bn in the previous week. Year to date, assets are practically flat, just USD76m below last year’s close.

There were no new listings in the Asia-Pac ETP markets in the past week. Total ETPs available in the region stand at 294, with 85% represented by equity products, and the remaining 15% distributed, mainly between Commodity and Fixed Income products.
