    Tradeweb Exchange-Traded Funds Update - January 2016

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

    ETF total traded volume
    Against a backdrop of collapsing commodity prices and soft economic data out of China, the Tradeweb European-listed ETF platform performed well during the month, with steady “hit rates” and total traded volume just shy of €11 billion.

    January also saw the launch of the Tradeweb U.S.-listed ETF marketplace, currently supported by 11 liquidity providers. The platform offers institutional investors a new level of transparency, flexibility and efficiency in the way they trade U.S.-listed ETFs.

    Volume by ETF asset class
    In January, “buys” for fixed income ETFs surpassed “sells” by three percentage points. In contrast, equity-based ETFs saw net selling with “sells” outstripping “buys” by 11 percentage points. Overall trading activity in the asset class beat the 12-month rolling average by eight percentage points.
