Efficiency is key for ETF listing

Euronext’s recognition as the Best European Exchange for Listing ETFs can be attributed to several key factors. Silvia Bosoni, Group Head of ETFs, explains that ETP issuers appreciate the efficiency of Euronext’s markets and the significant exposure the platform provides for their products. “Euronext stands out for its rapid listing process, with a turnaround time of just 48 hours, making it the fastest in Europe”. The harmonised online platform further facilitates a seamless and quick listing process, contributing to the increasing number of offerings on Euronext markets. An annual turnover of EUR142.28 billion last year and a total of 3,114 listed ETPs by the end of 2023 underline Euronext’s prominence in the market.

Wide pan-European geographical coverage from a single entry point

Euronext’s geographical coverage plays a pivotal role in winning the award for Best European Exchange for Trading ETFs. Euronext handles a substantial portion of European ETF activity across all seven of its markets. Euronext also claims the top position by the total number of ETFs traded, solidifying its standing as a leading exchange. Furthermore, “all intermediaries have a single point of access to ETF liquidity on all Euronext trading venues through our trading platform”, says Bosoni.

Keeping up to date with innovative new products

The recognition for Best European Exchange for Listing Cryptocurrency ETPs can be attributed to Euronext’s forward-thinking approach in addressing the evolving landscape of cryptocurrency products. The Cryptocurrency ETPs issued on Euronext allow investors to gain exposure to this growing asset class, while benefiting from the security of trading on a regulated exchange.

ESG and cryptocurrency were the hottest trends in 2023

The past year has witnessed several trends in the ETF industry, with ESG and sustainability continuing to evolve, and cryptocurrency among the strongest, “particularly popular among retail investors”, says Bosoni. “Euronext listed 21 new cryptocurrency ETPs in 2023 for a total of 129 and this number will only continue to grow. The year 2023 also saw the listing of the first ETF on bitcoin, expanding the offering on Euronext markets”.

Looking ahead to 2024

The latest trend to hit the market comes with the change in decree by the French Treasury, and approval by the AMF, allowing active ETFs in France. This is expected to contribute to a significant surge in new listings, particularly in the ESG sector. “The impact of Active ETFs on the industry is still small in absolute terms, but the growth trend is strong and experts believe it will continue”, says Bosoni.

Bosoni believes thematic exposure remains a focal point for the ETF industry with ETPs based on diverse trends, such as AI, semiconductors, block chain, continuing to gain traction. Single-stock short and leveraged ETPs, catering to investors seeking heightened volatility, are appreciated by retail investors across the Euronext markets.

Unifying the investment landscape across the value chain

As the leading pan-European market infrastructure, Euronext is focusing on several key initiatives to strengthen its position. Its most recent expansion sees all Euronext markets moving to a single clearing house, Euronext Clearing. This further builds upon the entire value chain, offering a unified financial market and ecosystem which will greatly benefit the Exchange’s clients, part of Euronext’s aim to shape capital markets for future generations.
