    Tradeweb European Exchange-Traded Funds Update - April 2018

    The following data is derived from trading activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF platform.

    ETF total traded volume
    Activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF marketplace remained strong in April. Total traded volume reached €16.7 billion, while 36.6% of transactions were processed via Tradeweb’s Automated Intelligent Execution tool (AiEX). The proportion of trade enquiries resulting in completed transactions remained high at 94%, a demonstration that institutional clients are receiving strong pricing.

    ETF volume breakdown
    All ETF asset classes saw net buying in April. Equity-based products accounted for 67% of the total platform flow, while activity in commodity ETFs also increased to 6%, as a proportion of the overall traded volume. Europe Equities narrowly beat its North America counterpart to emerge as the month’s most heavily-traded ETF category.

    Adriano Pace, managing director for equity derivatives at Tradeweb, said: “Against a backdrop of solid earnings results and higher oil prices, April saw the return of the equity ETF buyer, reversing the sell-off that took hold of the market in the two preceding months.”
