After last year's final spurt, the 1st quarter in the ETF market in 2024 was rather subdued, despite the positive market environment. This resulted in a decline in turnover of 24.08% compared to the 4th quarter. This resulted in a total turnover of CHF 15.829 billion in the first quarter of 2024. Compared to the same quarter of the previous year, however, the number of trades was up 2.32%. In terms of numbers, the first three months were very lively. The figure for the previous quarter was exceeded by 17.64% and that of the same quarter of the previous year by 14.88%. The average ticket size in the 1st quarter was down 18.12%, and the median was 4.29% above the previous year's figure. The number of newly listed ETFs on SIX Swiss Exchange rose by a further 50 units in the first three months of 2024. On 31 March, the total number of ETFs listed on SIX Swiss Exchange amounted to 1,719 units. Bond and equity ETFs were the focus of the new listings. Sustainability remained a preferred criterion. In addition, some new topics enriched the very diverse spectrum of the existing offering. 

These and more detailed statistics are available in the latest edition of the ETF Market Report.
