Total traded volume

Total traded volume on the Tradeweb European-listed ETF marketplace reached EUR 25 billion in August. More than 73% of transactions were processed via Tradeweb’s Automated Intelligent Execution (AiEX) tool.

Volume breakdown

Equity and fixed income ETFs saw net buying for the fourth successive month in contrast to their commodity-based counterparts. Trading activity in commodities ETFs increased to 12% of the overall platform flow, beating the previous 12-month rolling average by six percentage points. North America Equities was once again the most heavily-traded ETF category with over EUR 5 billion in traded notional volume.

Adriano Pace, head of equities (Europe) at Tradeweb, said: “Precious Metals ETCs had a very busy August in terms of trading activity, but saw mostly ‘sells’ during the month. Equity-focused ETFs, however, were strongly bought, particularly those offering investors exposure to global stocks.”
