Asian markets outperformed those in Europe and US in most derivatives classes
Exchanges in Asia Pacific saw their 2015
trading volumes grow faster than their US or European rivals in
more than half of the main derivatives asset classes, according
to a new report from the global exchange trade body.
Exchanges in the Asia Pacific region
outperformed their peers in the Americas and Europe, the Middle
East and Africa (Emea) by volume in nine out of the 15 contract
categories last year, according to data released by the World
Federation of Exchanges (WFE).
The WFE reported an 8% increase in Asian
stock options volumes, while exchanges in the Emea region saw
their volumes drop by 3% and markets in the Americas saw a 10%
decline in volumes. The Asian growth was mostly driven by the
BSE India, which recorded a 254% growth in volumes, and Taifex,
where volumes grew 61%.
