The Nasdaq Stock Market® Welcomes 14 New ETPs in the Second Quarter of 2017


NEW YORK, July 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq (Nasdaq:NDAQ), the single largest U.S. equity exchange by market share, announced 14 new exchange-traded product (ETP) listings from five issuers during the second quarter of 2017. Nasdaq now has a total of 348 products listed from 39 issuers as of June 30, 2017. Overall, Nasdaq listed ETPs gained more than $20B in new assets between the first quarter and second quarter of 2017, of which, $1B in asset growth can be attributed to 2016’s newly listed products.

“As new products come to market, we continue to see excitement around the evolution and value of ETP technology and are dedicated to supporting issuers and the market making community through transparency and innovation,” said Paul Roland, Head of U.S. ETP Listings at Nasdaq. “Our focus remains firm that we want to be at the forefront supporting ETP growth through our commitment to improve the overall ecosystem across both regulatory and market structure initiatives.”
