Adriano Pace, head of equities (Europe) at Tradeweb, said:

“September marked the end of our strongest quarter yet, with total traded volume reaching EUR 102.5 billion, up EUR 18.2 billion from Q2 2019. Last month, we also announced our collaboration with EuroCCP to facilitate central clearing for European ETFs and, subsequently, help clients minimise settlement fails and enhance their trading workflows.”

Volume breakdown

In contrast to their fixed income and commodity-based counterparts, equity ETFs saw net buying in September, with ‘buys’ in the asset class outperforming ‘sells’ by 16 percentage points.

Combined trading activity in North America and European Equity ETFs accounted for nearly 40% of the overall platform flow during the month.

Adam Gould, head of U.S. equities at Tradeweb, said: “September was another busy month on the U.S. ETF platform, particularly for fixed income ETFs which made up 56% of our notional volume.
