Flow Traders first quarter update shows resilient performance in slow market conditions


ETP marketmaker Flow Traders NV has published its unaudited first quarter update revealing that Flow Traders’ ETP Value Traded reached EUR174.8 billion, with growing momentum in the US.

The first quarter ETP Value Traded slightly outperformed the market in 1Q17 and showed strong growth Year-on-Year (+14 per cent) versus a declining market Year-on-Year (-19 per cent).
Q17 Net Trading Income (NTI) of EUR48.3 million reflects a resilient performance in slow market conditions, the firm writes and investor activity slowed down substantially, pushing market volatility (VIX) to its lowest point in over a decade and negatively impacting spreads.

1Q17 EBITDA margin at 38 per cent reflects expense development in line with expectations, the firm says. “Underlying growth drivers of the ETP market remained intact, as ETP Assets under Management (AuM) reached a new record once again of EUR3,610 billion.

Continued strong cash flows resulted in further growth of Flow Traders’ Regulatory Capital, and the firm had zero loss days in 1Q17, making it over 34 months without a trading loss day. The number of ETP listings Flow Traders is registered marketmaker for is approaching 5,000.
