This report provides detailed figures regarding the performance of SIX Swiss Exchange's ETF segment.
In the first quarter of 2018, Swiss Exchange recorded an ETF trading turnover of CHF 31.6 billion, as announced in the latest
ETF market report[pdf]. This equates
to a 5% increase over the previous quarter. A total of 321'562 ETF
tickets were generated in the first quarter of 2018, representing a significant increase of 25%
versus the previous quarter and the highest figure since the start of 2015. This was when the Swiss National Bank discontinued
the euro/Swiss franc exchange rate floor, which resulted in a sharp rise in volatility.
The positive trend in turnover of ETFs listed on SIX Swiss Exchange during the first quarter was primarily attributable to
equity ETFs. These saw quarter-on-quarter growth of 26.4%, to CHF 27.49 billion.

ETF (symbol: CSSMI) also feature among the top places this quarter once again.
