A summary of FESE members’ trading figures
2022 has been marked by slowing growth, inflationary pressures, rising interest rates and persistent geopolitical uncertainty. This has been translated into the mixed picture we see across asset classes and capital markets. FESE’s data confirms that, while trading in equity markets has remained stable, volumes in primary equity markets have declined. Conversely, derivatives trading has risen, especially in options and futures related to bonds, stocks, indexes and forex, excluding commodity derivatives. In a similar fashion, the bond and ETF markets performed well. Yet, UCITS activity showed decreases and securitised derivatives had mixed results.
