SIX Swiss Exchange reports that the number of ETFs listed on SIX Swiss Exchange increased by 25 in the fourth quarter to a total of 1,696 as of 31 December 2022.
The main focus of the new listings still related to sustainability, the exchange writes. There were also two increases in specialty funds based on megatrends. In January 2023, the threshold of 1,700 ETFs was passed.
The asset classes of equities and bonds increased their turnover, while the asset class of commodities and the minor category of “other ETFs” reported slightly lower turnover. Equities remained the most popular category with a 66.2 per cent share of total turnover.
The most-traded ETFs in the 4th quarter were headed unchanged by ACWIU, ACWIS, and ACWIE. All three equity ETFs are based on the MSCI ACWI, which comprises large and medium-sized companies from 23 industrialised countries and 24 emerging countries. The best performance in CHF in the third quarter was achieved by the ETF HTRY from HSBC based on the MSCI Turkey, which posted an increase of 55.46 per cent.
