Tradeweb reports second strongest month in ETFs in May

RELATED TOPICS​

Tradeweb reports its second strongest month in trading activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF platform in May since its launch in October 2012.

Total traded volume amounted to EUR22.38 billion, while the proportion of transactions processed via Tradeweb’s Automated Intelligent Execution tool (AiEX) remained high at 33.2 per cent.
 
Adriano Pace (pictured), head of equities (Europe) at Tradeweb, says: “As the month drew to a close, platform activity accelerated amid heightened market volatility driven by political developments in Italy and Spain. More than EUR6 billion was executed in the last three days of May alone, which translates into 27 per cent of the entire monthly flow.”

Fixed income ETFs saw net selling for the first time since December 2017. Activity in the asset class increased to 38 per cent of the overall notional volume, beating the previous 12-month rolling average by seven percentage points. In contrast, ‘buys’ in commodity and equity-based ETFs outstripped ‘sells’. However, activity in both asset classes lagged the previous 12-month rolling average by one and six percentage points respectively.

May’s list of the 10 most heavily-traded ETFs was dominated by fixed income products, with the iShares Corporate Bond UCITS ranked first. The fund, which aims to track the performance of the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Investment Grade Index, last appeared in the top 10 in January 2018.
