NYSE claims position as top US exchange for ETFs in 2017


The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), a wholly owned subsidiary of Intercontinental Exchange, has published its results for 2017, claiming its position as the top US exchange for ETFs over the year, with USD2.8 trillion in assets under management, representing 83 per cent of US AUM and 22 per cent of US ETF trading volume.

The exchange writes that this strong trajectory is expected to continue in 2018 with a solid pipeline of innovative ETFs to come during the year.

The exchanges writes: “For the tenth consecutive year, NYSE Arca attracted the largest percentage and number of new ETF issuances, including 149 new listings valued at USD5.8 billion in AUM combined. Notably, this included the largest single-day issuance in more than five years, when Franklin Templeton launched 16 new ETFs in November. NYSE Arca also welcomed 13 first-time ETF issuers to its listed community.”

“2017 was another record breaking year for ETF growth, where we saw the industry hit a new record of USD3.4 trillion in AUM, representing 35 per cent growth over 2016. NYSE Arca is pleased to support the industry’s growth by enhancing the market structure and supporting our issuers’ ability to launch innovative new products,” says NYSE Head of Exchange Traded Funds, Douglas Yones.

NYSE Arca highlights include 149 new listings accounting for 54 per cent of all new issuances. As at 31 December 2017, 1,498 ETFs are listed on NYSE Arca.

NYSE traded more than two times the volume of the next largest exchange, with 22 per cent market share for all US ETFs, and claims the narrowest quoted bid/ask spreads of any ETF trading venue.

NYSE Arca welcomed 13 new ETF issuers – Advisor Asset Management, Brandometry, Change Finance, ClearShares, EntrepreneurShares, Fieldstone, GraniteShares, Inspire, Nationwide, Transamerica, SerenityShares, SL Advisors, and USAA, bringing the total number of ETF issuers on NYSE Arca to more than 80.
