NYSE Arca, NYSE Group’s marketplace for exchange-traded funds, listed 35 of the top 50 new ETFs by assets under management in 2016. The group also reaffirmed its position as the leading US ETF listings exchange for the ninth consecutive year with over 92% of total US ETF AUM. The total US ETF market grew by approximately $417 billion, or nearly 20%, during 2016, and ETP volume now accounts for nearly 30% of all dollar volume trading in US stocks.

NYSE Arca, NYSE’s marketplace for ETFs, lists 1,510 ETFs with $2.4 trillion in AUM.

NYSE Arca also maintained its position as the greatest provider of liquidity for the trading of ETF securities with nearly 2.5 times the trading volume of the next closest venue. Approximately 250 new ETFs were listed during 2016, with 113 listing on NYSE Arca.

Douglas Yones, NYSE’s Head of Exchange Traded Products said: “For the ninth consecutive year, NYSE Arca has mirrored the strong growth trajectory of the US ETF market, and in doing so, has rounded out another year as the premier ETF listing exchange. We worked closely with a range of issuers to bring 113 new listings to market, and deep liquidity drove our continued leadership in share of ETF trading. In 2016, we expanded our team and enhanced our service to issuers. From product development and launch to data, ongoing marketing and distribution, we are fully aligned with supporting the success of our clients.”

Tom Farley, NYSE Group President added: “We are proud to support the growth of the ETF market again in 2016, which brings cost-efficient, liquid products for retail and institutional investors alike. We are highly engaged with issuers throughout their product lifecycle to bring successful products to market in a competitive industry, as well as evolving the market structure to support ongoing growth. And our results demonstrate that our issuer-focused value proposition across product development, trading and visibility is delivering these strong results.”

In June, NYSE Arca received regulatory approval to streamline the listing process for certain actively managed ETFs(See: “SEC approves streamlining of active ETF listings“).  To date, eight issuers have launched 11 new products using the streamlined process. “As an exchange, we are committed to being a champion for our issuers in driving changes that enhance market performance and remove barriers to entry. Our efforts in 2016 have ensured our markets are in a far stronger position than ever before,” said Yones.

NYSE Arca hosts 1,510 ETFs with nearly $2.4 trillion in AUM.
