Tradeweb’s European ETF marketplace recorded €43.65 billion in notional volume trading activity during Q2 2017.

“Against a backdrop of improving macroeconomic data and increasing speculation of monetary stimulus recalibration in Europe, notional volume executed on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF marketplace reached €12.15 billion in June,” said Adriano Pace, managing director for equity derivatives at Tradeweb.

Equity ETFs saw net selling for the third consecutive month this year, as ‘sells’ outstripped ‘buys’ by three percentage points. Activity in the products decreased to 63% of the overall notional volume but still outperformed the 12-month rolling average by three percentage points. Europe and North America equities were the two most active categories during the month, capturing 31.5% of the entire platform flow.

The PIMCO Euro Short Maturity Source UCITS ETF (PJS1), which invests primarily in an actively managed diversified portfolio of euro-denominated fixed income securities, was the most heavily traded product in June as well as Q2 2017. The fund has AUM of €2.3 billion and a TER of 0.35%.
