Today's ETF Landscape

NYSE Arca has become the leading U.S. exchange for ETFs. We listed our first ETF in 2000 and, since then, we've launched the world's first ETV and the first ever commodity-based ETF, and were the first exchange to enhance our generic ETF listings standards to include international and fixed income products.

We are proud to be the #1 exchange in ETF Volume and Listings
