Tradeweb ETF volume up 10 per cent in September


Trading volume executed on the Tradeweb European-listed exchange-traded fund (ETF) marketplace reached EUR8.82 billion in September, up 10 per cent from the previous month.

Adriano Pace, managing director for equity derivatives at Tradeweb, says: “In a month characterised by few market-moving catalysts and a general lack of investment direction, our platform continued to provide an efficient mechanism for transacting ETFs.
“September also saw the addition of the 14th liquidity provider posting axes to the platform, as the functionality is adopted across an increasingly wide range of ETF instruments.”
Overall activity in Q3 2016 amounted to EUR29.56 billion, the platform’s fourth strongest quarterly notional volume since its launch in October 2012.
Equity Europe, equity North America and equity emerging markets proved to be the most popular sectors during both the third quarter and September. Monthly ‘buys’ nearly mirrored ‘sells’ across equity and fixed income ETFs. Activity in the latter surged to 41 per cent, as a proportion of the overall traded volume, against a 12-month rolling average of 33 per cent.
In contrast, there was a clear buying trend in commodity-based ETFs, which saw their overall volume increase to 9 per cent, beating the previous 12-month rolling average by four percentage points.
September’s top 10 ETF list by traded volume was dominated by fixed income products, with the highest-ranking ones offering exposure to global emerging markets debt. In fourth place, the iShares Emerging Markets Local Government Bond UCITS ETF was also the most heavily-traded fund in the third quarter.
