Strong Increase of Equity Trading Volumes ( 17.4%) in 2014

Equity tradings voliumes released by The World Federation of Exchanges Ltd. in its Annual Statistics Market Highlights report.

Among the main trends for 2014 were:

  • The value of share trading rose 17.4% worldwide to 81 trillion USD from 2013.
  • The number of trades rose 23.7% from 2013; the average value of trades continued to decrease.
  • A continuing good performance of equity markets as Global Market Capitalization rose 4.3% to 68 trillion USD from 2013.

-Good performance of IPO markets and investment flows. The number of IPOs rose 24.3% from 2013 to 1421. Total investment flows in USD increased 22.6% from 2013 to 894 billion USD.

-Exchange Traded Derivatives (ETD) volumes rose 2.8% from 2013, mainly driven by commodity derivatives.

“The numbers illustrate that investor demand for financing and ways to transfer risk continue to grow,” said Nandini Sukumar, Acting CEO of the WFE. “Exchanges are — and will remain — the natural place for both those needs. Volumes are growing across asset classes, investment flows are increasing and IPO’s are strong. There is confidence that capital markets can provide the means for growth.

“The full year numbers build on the trends we saw back in the first-half when exchange volumes and IPO’s picked up,” said Grégoire Naacke, Senior Analyst at the WFE. “What is marked in 2014 is that equity volumes picked up in all the three regions. Asia Pacific is still the strongest but the Americas and EMEA are closing the gap.”
