"Paving the Way for ETP Innovation"
REMOTE NYSE Opening Bell from Hollywood, Florida - Monday, February 11, 2013, 9:30 am EST
On Monday, February 11, 2013, NYSE Euronext executives, leading Exchange Traded Product (ETP) issuers, representatives from NYSE Arca Lead Market Makers and several other key industry participants will ring the NYSE Opening Bell remotely from IndexUniverse's 6th Annual Inside ETFs Conference to celebrate the 20 years of continued growth and innovation of ETP listing and trading in the U.S. markets. NYSE Arca, the all-electronic trading platform of NYSE Euronext, is the leading exchange for ETP listing and trading in the U.S.
Held each year in Florida, IndexUniverse's Inside ETFs is one of the industry's leading ETF conferences providing sophisticated financial advisors and portfolio managers with timely and actionable ideas to help navigate any market condition. With more than 1,200 participants attending, guest speakers will provide investors with topical sessions such as generating income, managing volatility to evaluating ETPs, among many others.
This remote bell will open the U.S. stock market and will be broadcasted live to audiences worldwide from IndexUniverse's Inside ETFs conference in Hollywood, and follows two NYSE bell ceremonies on January 29 that marked the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of listing ETPs in the U.S.
NYSE Arca continues to maintain the highest market share of any U.S. exchange in both exchange traded product listing and trading. Today, there are over 1,450 ETPs listed in the U.S. with over $1.38 trillion in assets and accounting for nearly 30% of all U.S. equity trading by dollar volume.
To further commemorate the 20th anniversary of the ETP industry NYSE Arca recently launched a 20th Anniversary website that features an interactive ETP timeline, videos, and additional information. For more information and data on NYSE Euronext listed ETPs log on here.
