Since the New York Stock Exchange bought the American Stock Exchange it has been steadily moving ETFs off of the Amex, now renamed the NYSE Alternext US, to its chief ETF exchange the NYSE Arca. The move continues as Claymore Securities transferred the primary listing of 21 of its ETFs and Northern Exchange Traded Shares (NETS) transferred the primary listing of six of its ETFs to the NYSE Arca from the NYSE Alternext. With the recent moves off the Alternext, one wonders whether any ETFs will trade on it when the NYSE is through.
Founded in 1889, Northern Trust currently offers 16 ETFs that track foreign-based indexes. With today’s move, all now trade on the NYSE Arca. As of September 30, Northern Trust had $3.5 trillion assets under custody and $652.4 billion in assets under investment management.
Claymore offers 33 stock and bond ETFs. Claymore also sells unit investment trusts (UITs) and closed-end funds (CEFs). As of September 30, Claymore supervised approximately $13.8 billion in assets.
Including all 16 NETS listings and 30 of the Claymore ETFs, NYSE Arca has 318 primary ETF listings, 79 exchange-traded notes. According to NYSE Arca the exchange-traded products listed represent nearly $353 billion, or 59%, of ETF and ETN assets under management in the U.S., the most of any exchange.
