Tradeweb European ETF platform reports strong activity in April


Activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF marketplace remained strong in April with total traded volume of EUR16.7 billion, while 36.6 per cent of transactions were processed via Tradeweb’s Automated Intelligent Execution tool (AiEX).

Tradeweb reports that the proportion of trade enquiries resulting in completed transactions remained high at 94 per cent, a demonstration that institutional clients are receiving strong pricing.
All ETF asset classes saw net buying in April. Equity-based products accounted for 67 per cent of the total platform flow, while activity in commodity ETFs also increased to 6 per cent, as a proportion of the overall traded volume. Europe Equities narrowly beat its North America counterpart to emerge as the month’s most heavily-traded ETF category.
Adriano Pace (pictured), managing director for equity derivatives at Tradeweb, says: “Against a backdrop of solid earnings results and higher oil prices, April saw the return of the equity ETF buyer, reversing the sell-off that took hold of the market in the two preceding months.”
By traded volume, the Xtrackers MSCI World Swap UCITS ETF was the most actively-traded fund on the platform for the third consecutive month. In second place, the PIMCO Euro Short Maturity Source UCITS ETF returned to the top 10 after last holding the top spot in December 2017.
