February proved to be the third strongest month on record for the Tradeweb European ETF marketplace, with total traded volume reaching EUR64.4 billion. Approximately 81 per cent of transactions were processed via Tradeweb’s Automated Intelligent Execution (AiEX) tool.

Adam Gould, head of equities at Tradeweb, says: “February was another turbulent month across global markets. While the impact of the omicron variant softened, continued uncertainty around interest rate hikes and geopolitical tensions in Europe set the backdrop for investor concern. In the current fast markets, we believe the ability for clients to view multiple risk markets quickly and simultaneously, execute and move on, makes electronic RFQ platforms a great fit.”

Both equity and commodity ETFs saw net buying in February in contrast to their fixed income counterparts. Trading activity in bond-based products increased to 32 per cent of the overall platform flow, beating the previous 12-month rolling average by two percentage points. North America Equities was the most aggressively-traded ETF category during the month, with Europe Equities narrowly surpassing Global Equities to reclaim second place.

Total consolidated US ETF notional value traded in February 2022 amounted to USD44.2 billion, the platform’s second best performance since its launch in early 2016.
As a percentage of total notional value, equities accounted for 45 per cent and fixed income for 51 per cent, with the remainder comprising commodity and specialty ETFs.
