Tradeweb sees record-breaking ETF trading activity

RELATED TOPICS​

Tradeweb reports that trading activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF marketplace reached a record-breaking EUR17.744 billion in May, narrowly beating the platform’s previous strongest performance in March 2017.

Adriano Pace (pictured), managing director for equity derivatives at Tradeweb, says: “In May, more than 30 per cent of the platform’s total traded volume was executed in ETFs offering exposure to European equities, as the election result in France and speculation ahead of the UK general election dominated headlines. North America equities were also very active, but were heavily offered.”

Equity ETFs were the only asset class to see net selling during the month, Tradeweb reports, with ‘sells’ outstripping ‘buys’ by two percentage points. Activity in the products increased to 70 per cent of the overall notional volume, outperforming the 12-month rolling average by 11 percentage points.

Meanwhile, ‘buys’ in fixed income ETFs surpassed ‘sells’ by five percentage points, as a proportion of the entire platform flow. Corporate Bonds and Government Bonds were the most heavily-traded fixed income categories over the course of the month, with EUR1.185 billion and EUR1.135 billion in traded volume respectively.
