How to Issue Exchange Traded Products (ETPs)

  • As one of the leading financial centres in the World, underpinned by globally respected standards of regulation and a deep pool of liquidity, London continues to create an environment conducive to evermore opportunities.
  • The market for ETPs operates in an order driven environment on SETS, the London Stock Exchange’s premier trading service with integrated Market Maker liquidity provision, delivering guaranteed two-way prices. This ensures that all ETPs trading on the London Stock Exchange are continuously supported with bid-offer orders throughout the trading day in a minimum size and maximum spread regime.
  • The Exchange is committed to developing the market for Exchange Traded Products. We were the first to introduce a dedicated ETC segment in September 2006 in order to build on the success of the Exchange Traded Gold product, which was first traded on the Exchange in 2004. This was followed by the development of multi-currency ETC trading in October 2007.
  • The price and trading data of your products will be disseminated to over 139,000 professional terminals worldwide and is then disseminated to websites and private investors worldwide via our Infolect data feed. This helps to ensure that essential data about your products reach investors globally.

Exchange Traded Commodities (ETCs)

ETCs are simple and transparent open-ended securities which trade on regulated exchanges. ETCs enable investors to gain exposure to both commodities and currencies without trading futures or taking physical delivery.

It is no wonder that more and more investors seeking commodity and currency exposure are turning to ETCs and that this increasingly mainstream alternative asset class has experienced exponential growth since its inception.

Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs)

ETNs are notes that track the performance of an underlying asset.

Similar to Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and traded and settled exactly like normal shares on their own dedicated sector. ETNs have market maker support with guaranteed liquidity, enabling investors to gain exposure to commodities, on-exchange, during London hours.

ETNs can be held in an ISA or SIPP and, if held directly, are eligible for Capital Gains Tax treatment.
