Tradeweb reports fifth month of high ETF volumes


May saw total traded volume on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF marketplace surpass EUR10 billion for the fifth consecutive month. “This was despite reduced market volatility and heightened market concerns over a potential ‘Brexit’ and a further interest rate hike in the US,” says Adriano Pace, managing director for equity derivatives at Tradeweb.

 Activity in equity-based ETFs increased by two percentage points to 66 per cent against the 12-month rolling average. ‘Sells’ in the asset class outstripped ‘buys’ by two percentage points as a proportion of the overall traded volume.
Funds investing in the European equity market saw their traded volume reach EUR2.35 billion, of which 58 per cent was attributed to ‘sells’. In contrast, fixed income and commodity-based products saw net buying during the month. Government bond ETFs were the most heavily-traded fixed income instruments with a notional of more than EUR820 million. Meanwhile, overall activity in commodity ETFs outperformed the 12-month rolling average by three percentage points.
