Spectrum Markets, the pan-European trading venue for securitised derivatives, announced the first quarter of 2021 has set a new record for the firm, with 207 million securitised derivatives traded, up 22% on the previous quarter. The number of securitised derivatives traded was 245% higher than the same quarter in 2020, underlining the strong growth Spectrum is achieving as its business matures.

In March, a total of 71.8 million securitised derivatives were traded on the venue, an increase of 9% on the previous month, also representing a monthly record for Spectrum.

Indices continued to be the most popular underlying, representing 87.6% of product volumes in March. The OMX 30, DAX 30 and S&P 500 saw the highest demand, representing 25.7%, 16.5% and 16.4% respectively of securitised derivatives traded that month.

"It’s promising to announce another record month and quarter for Spectrum; these numbers show how far we have come as a business in a relatively short space of time, and reflect the clear demand from retail investors for a modern, flexible and low-cost trading venue. I now see us in a strong position to build on this foundation for further expansion by way of partners and members on a Pan-EU level,” explains Michael Hall, Head of Business Development at Spectrum Markets
