Market briefing


First, I would like to say a big thank you to our members for their continued support in volatile markets. The French and Italian segments continue to grow, having outperformed YoY growth of the core benchmark sectors. We are starting to see our Fixed Income ETF options segment picking up and I’m excited by what we can potentially achieve in this space. Again, thank you to our members and partners for supporting us on this journey.
