Scoach remains Europe’s largest exchange for structured products

RELATED TOPICS​

Scoach achieved a trading volume of EUR62 billion in Zurich and Frankfurt in 2011, making it Europe’s number 1. Its total offering of over 800,000 tradable products is actually the largest in the world.

Turnover in Frankfurt was EUR19.6 billion in 2011. This represented a year-on-year increase of 2.7 million executed transactions or 8.6 percent. 2011 saw the introduction of the Hong Kong dollar (HKD) as a trading currency, among other new developments. In the German market the number of products listed rose to 780,000 by the end of 2011 (a 50% increase year-on-year). Up to 6,000 securities are admitted to trading each day. These now newly include a growing number of collateral secured instruments (COSI) which minimise issuer risk for investors. 



Turnover in the Swiss market rose by 30 percent in 2011 to CHF 52 billion (or EUR42.4 billion). Asset managers and institutional clients in particular are making increasing use of regulated stock exchange trading. The number of listings grew by 27 percent to over 52,000 products – a record figure, as is the number of products currently tradable, at more than 40,000. As of October, Scoach is the world’s first stock exchange to support trading of structured products using gold (XAU) as the trading currency, expanding the world’s largest selection of trading currencies to 24.



Christian Reuss (pictured), CEO of Scoach, says: “Stock exchange turnover grew for the first time since 2008 to over EUR62 billion. We are very happy with this performance. We have also set new records for the number of listed products, both in Frankfurt and Zurich. We now aim to reinforce Scoach’s international character further still. Investors from 18 countries can already trade with us. The discussions on connecting new market participants in Hong Kong are progressing well and we are confident that we will see the first transactions on our platform in the coming months.”
