    ETF total traded volume
    Activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF marketplace showed no signs of slowing down in June, as notional volume surpassed €23 billion for the second time on record. The month also marked the end of the platform’s second best-performing quarter since launch, with more than €62 billion executed in the April-June period.

    Adriano Pace, head of equities (Europe) at Tradeweb, said: “Institutional trading of ETFs continues to grow on Tradeweb, as demonstrated by the 101% increase in European ETF average daily volumes year-over-year. Platform features such as automated trading, which now accounts for one third of our total flow in Europe, help clients reduce operational risk and focus on larger sized trades.”
