NYSE Arca number one for US ETP listings and exchange trading
NYSE Euronext’s fully electronic US equities market, NYSE Arca, continued to hold the leading position in exchange-traded products listings and exchange trading in 2012.
NYSE Arca market makers provided the best bid or offer of any exchange, nearly 90 per cent of the time, for all US ETPs. NYSE Arca also maintained the highest level of market share amongst all ETP US exchanges at over 20 per cent for all of 2012.
In 2012, NYSE Arca listed nearly 150 new ETP products which included 116 ETFs, 23 ETNs and 8 ETVs from issuers expanding on investment themes in equities, commodities, and emerging markets. Actively managed transparent ETFs continued to see strong momentum representing over 16 per cent of new ETP listings in 2012 up from 5 per cent in 2011 while index-based ETFs were down approximately 50 per cent from the nearly 300 new products in 2011. New issuers listing their first products on NYSE Arca in 2012 included: Exchange Traded Concepts; ArrowShares; BNP Paribas; Huntington Securities; and Pyxis.
At the end of 2012, there were 1,337 NYSE Arca-listed ETPs comprised of 1,048 ETFs, 208 ETNs, and 81 ETVs with combined assets under management of USD1.28trn, an increase of 23 per cent from December 2011. ETPs industry-wide reached USD1.35trn in assets under management, a 26 per cent increase from December 2011.
“Our ETP issuers rely heavily on our innovative technology, consultative approach and expertise to help bring their products to market,” says Laura V Morrison, senior vice president, global index and exchange traded products group, NYSE Euronext. “We look forward to continuing our legacy of providing ETP issuers the most compelling market structure for listing and trading their products in 2013 and beyond.”
