Spectrum Markets hits 100 million traded securitised derivatives

Spectrum Markets has exceeded the milestone of 100 million traded securitised derivatives since its launch in October 2019, and has increased its trading volume in each of its seven consecutive months of full trading. In April alone 28.1 million securitised derivatives were traded, which represents a 5.6% increase over the previous month.


“100 million securitised derivatives traded on Spectrum Markets is a proud moment for our young business”, says Nicky Maan, CEO of Spectrum Markets. “Since the launch of trading in October 2019, trading volumes have increased every month, reflecting growing confidence in our innovative approach and stable technology platform. The rise in trading volumes during the past few weeks further demonstrates that investors are using Spectrum Markets to benefit from the trading opportunities that arise in volatile markets.”

The share of out-of-hours trading (i.e. 1730-0900) was 40.7%. During volatile days, up to 20 percent of the total trading volume originated from products that were issued via intraday issuance.

The breakdown of trading volume of securitised derivatives in April is as follows: 84.4% is attributable to indices (March: 90%), 8.2% to FX (March: 7%) and 7.4% to commodities (March: 3%).

The top traded underlyings were OMX with a share of 22.5%, followed by the S&P 500 with 21.9% and the DAX with a share of 19.7%. All 21 underlyings have been traded in April (overview).

Spectrum Markets is a pan-European marketplace where retail investors can invest in structured products via their brokers. From its launch, trading has been available in ten countries: Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Ireland, Finland, and Belgium.
