The global value of exchange-traded funds traded in 2012 dropped by 31.6 per cent to USD7.3trn, according to data published by the World Federation of Exchanges.

Asia-Pacific was the only region to buck the downward global ETF trading trend with an increase of 1.8 per cent, while South Korea was the star performing country with a rise in turnover of 10.6 per cent.

The sharp global decrease was mainly due to the performance of the US ETF sector which represents 83 per cent of total global ETF turnover and finished the year down 33 per cent.

The World Federation of Exchanges’ data is based on the performance of 58 member exchanges around the world.
