ETF Market Report: 2nd Quarter 2019 - This Report Provides Detailed Figures Regarding The Performance Of The ETF Segment Of SIX

Date 12/07/2019

The Swiss ETF market is still in a robust condition, as the latest edition of our ETF Market Report[PDF] shows. With CHF 24.7 billion, trading turnover in the second quarter was almost on par with the previous year (CHF 25.4 bn), while the number of transactions showed a slight growth, from 253'605 to 257'707.

The list of the top 20 most-traded ETFs was still dominated by ETFs based on broadly diversified market indicators; in the second quarter, eleven of them boosted their turnover against the previous quarter. In the turnover ranking, UBS maintained its lead with 43.18%. BlackRock/iShares remained in second place with a market share of 23.66%.

Increase of Turnover in Closing Auction

In October 2018, SIX introduced a closing auction and the "At The Close" order for ETF trading. This brings all buyers and sellers together and gives investors access to greater liquidity. Danielle Reischuk, Senior ETFs & ETPs Sales Manager in the Securities & Exchanges business unit of SIX, comments: "Since the beginning of the year, the Swiss stock exchange has registered more activity in the closing auction, which is reflected in an increasing share of ETF trading turnover. On 2 July, SIX already saw a new record with a share of 7.5%."

With 1'500 ETFs, SIX Ranks Among Top 3 ETF Venues in Europe

During the second quarter 2019, the product issuers listed a total of 83 new ETFs on SIX, almost twice as many as during the first quarter (43). As a result, the choice for investors on the Swiss stock exchange has risen by 126 ETFs since the beginning of the year.

SIX celebrated an ETF record on 2 May 2019. Since it launched the segment in 2000, SIX has experienced remarkable growth in ETF listings. The Swiss stock exchange’s extensive product range, offered by a unique mix of large and smaller providers from both Switzerland and abroad, covers a wide spectrum of investment needs.

As of 30 June, investors enjoyed a choice 1'535 ETFs from 25 issuers. The latest information on market data, turnover and new listings can be found on the SIX website.
