Adriano Pace, managing director for equity derivatives at Tradeweb, said: “In May, more than 30% of the platform’s total traded volume was executed in ETFs offering exposure to European equities, as the election result in France and speculation ahead of the UK general election dominated headlines. North America equities were also very active, but were heavily offered.”
