Tradeweb platform sees third strongest month since launch


The data drawn from trading activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF platform shows that October was its third strongest since its launch three years ago. Monthly total traded volume surpassed EUR10 billion for the fifth time this year, reaching EUR10.568 billion on October 30. 

The firm writes that October also saw the arrival of the 22nd marketmaker on the platform, as well as the addition of yield and duration metrics for certain fixed income ETF instruments.
All ETF asset classes saw net buying in October, with ‘buys’ outstripping ‘sells’ by 12 percentage points in total. The trend was particularly strong in fixed income products, where nearly 63 per cent of trades were ‘buys’. Meanwhile, overall trading activity in equity-based ETFs outperformed the 12-month rolling average by five percentage points.
By traded volume the top ten ETFs included four fixed income, including two instruments offering exposure to global emerging markets debt. However, the iShares Euro High Yield Corporate Bond UCITS ETF was ranked first: the fund re-entered the top ten after featuring in tenth place in April 2015.
