No sooner was the etfLIVE Europe digital summit over but one of the subjects that engaged the regulatory panel came to the fore, with the announcement from EFAMA that the appointment of a consolidated tape provider would further strengthen the ETF ecosystem in Europe. etfLIVE Europe panellist Brian Higgins, partner, Dillon Eustace, commented: “As EFAMA has highlighted, it is important to ensure that timely and good quality data is available to market participants at a reasonable cost.”

This week also saw evidence of demand for leveraged ETP products, with REX Shares announcing its eighth upsize so far this year in its Big Oil 3x ETN on the back of customer demand, while GraniteShares’ Will Rhind, etfLIVE Europe summit panellist, reported that assets in his three year old firm have gone up to over USD1 billion. GraniteShares offers leveraged and short single stock ETPs in London.

Finally, we have an interview with Nick Hooten of QS Investors, Legg Mason’s USD15 billion quant arm that finds ETFs ‘very valuable’ when constructing portfolios. Hooten will be speaking at etfLIVE’s US digital summit in October.
