Exchange-Traded Funds Quarterly Update - Q4 2013
The following data is derived from trading activity on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF platform from 1 October to 31 December 2013.
Volume by ETF asset class
Activity in equity-based ETFs on Tradeweb continued to move upwards in the last quarter of 2013, increasing by 8 percentage basis points in comparison with third quarter figures. Conversely, fixed income and commodity-based ETFs saw a decrease in volume by 5 and 3 percentage points respectively. The previous quarter’s strong buying trend endured for equities and fixed income. It was a different story for commodities, however, as “buys” in the asset class dropped by 3 percentage points to just 1 per cent.
