ETF Securities is to launch 'ETF Exchange,' the first multi-sponsor ETF issuance consortium, which comprises financial institutions and banks around the world.
The ETF exchange has been designed to offer investors the most liquid and creditworthy ETFs worldwide, across different indices and asset classes.
More than 15 banks and financial institutions spanning Europe, the US and Asia have registered interest in joining the consortium.
The idea behind the consortium stemmed from investor demand for heightened transparency, liquidity and management of counterparty risk within the ETF industry, according to ETFS.
Counterparty risk is mitigated, as the ETFs are not reliant upon a single counterparty. Liquidity is enhanced, with multiple market makers offering competitive prices. The new model also uses multiple and interchangeable counterparties in order to stably and accurately track the index.
Until now, all ETF issuers have been owned and run by single financial institutions.
