The ETF industry had a strong start to 2018 alongside the renewed market volatility, finishing Q1 with 81 new ETFs listed with more than $6 billion in AUM.
It was great catching up with many of you at Inside ETFs in Florida. This has fast become our industry’s premier gathering, and plays a key role in setting the industry agenda for the year ahead.
Our ETF market place continues to grow and we were pleased to introduce 55 new ETFs on NYSE Arca, and we welcomed seven new issuers to our community: Amplify, American Century, Bank of Montreal, BP Capital Fund Advisors, Breakwave Advisors, Metaurus, and Whitford Asset Management. We also welcomed four new transfers from other venues:

Active Non-Transparent Filing
On January 22, 2018 Natixis announced that it has entered into an agreement to license NYSE’s methodology to operate an actively managed, periodically disclosed ETF. The proposed ETFs will use our methodology to disclose on a daily basis a proxy portfolio designed to reflect the economic exposures and risk characteristics of the ETF’s actual portfolio at the end of the trading day.
This marks an important development for ETF innovation that will provide even greater investor choice.
Official Closing Price
On March 20, 2018, the NYSE received SEC approval for a new process to set a new Official Closing Price (“OCP”) for Exchange Traded Products. The new Official Closing Price is now derived by adding a percentage of the time-weighted average price (“TWAP”) of the National Best Bid and Offer (NBBO) midpoint and a percentage of the last consolidated trade, before the scheduled close of trading on that trading day. This change will enable us to set a better closing price, especially for products that are not actively traded.
