LSE lists 1000th ETP


More than 1,000 Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) are now listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Since the launch of London’s first ETF in 2000, its range of products has grown to include 644 ETFs, 316 ETCs and 46 ETNs. The 1,006 products are offered by 17 separate issuers.

The milestone was reached on Thursday as UBS listed 64 new ETFs on LSE, the largest number ever admitted to trading in a single day. The range of products offers investors exposure to a wide range of indices, including those licensed by FTSE, MSCI, Standard&Poor’s, Markit iBoxx and Euro STOXX. The indices track European, American, Asian and emerging market equities; as well as fixed income and commodity markets.

This month, the total value of ETPs traded on LSE since their launch surpassed GBP500 billion.

So far this year, 74 ETFs and 14 ETCs have admitted to the London market.

Across its markets in London and Milan, LSE Group now sees the highest ETP trading volume of any European exchange.
Pietro Poletto (pictured), Head of ETPs at London Stock Exchange Group, says: "When we look at Exchange Traded Products over the last twelve years we see a fantastic story of growth and diversification. There are now over a thousand products traded on LSE, offering investors instant, flexible exposure to a vast range of underlyings including benchmark indices, emerging markets, equities, bonds, oil, metals, livestock and currencies.

"UBS’s new funds further strengthen London’s vibrant ETP marketplace, the most diversified of its kind in Europe."
