Tradeweb reports growing use of automated trading in ETFs


Tradeweb has published the data derived from trading activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF platform over November, revealing that notional volume executed on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF marketplace reached EUR14.18 billion in November, while the number of completed trades increased by 6 per cent on the previous month.

Adriano Pace, managing director for equity derivatives at Tradeweb, says: “Last month, more than 29 per cent of European ETF transactions on our platform were processed using our automated intelligent execution tool, significantly up from January’s 6 per cent figure. The growing use of automated trading by Tradeweb clients demonstrates the efficiency that the functionality brings to the market, as it begins to adopt new ways of trading amid regulatory change and resource pressures.”

November’s activity in equity ETFs mirrored the previous 12-month rolling average at 61 per cent of the total platform flow. Europe Equities was the most heavily-traded sector, and saw net selling unlike the majority of its stocks-based counterparts. Government Bonds was fixed income’s most active ETF sector with more than EUR1.33 billion in traded volume. ‘Buys’ in commodity ETFs surpassed ‘sells’ by two percentage points at 3 per cent.

There was an equal split between equity- and debt-based instruments occupying November’s top 10 ETF list by traded volume. The PIMCO Euro Short Maturity Source UCITS ETF returned to the top after last holding the spot in June 2017.
