The Rise of Exchange Traded Products

Exchange-traded products (ETPs) provide a convenient, regulated, and cost-effective avenue for both retail and institutional investors to engage with various underlying investments, and the realm of digital assets is no exception.

Since the inception of the initial bitcoin tracker in Sweden in 2015, digital asset ETPs have transcended their primarily European presence, evolving into a globally expanding market. The number of these products has surged from a mere 17 at the close of 2020 to approximately 180 available for trading today. With an increasing number of traditional financial institutions joining forces with digital asset-native companies to issue ETPs, it is becoming evident that these instruments play a crucial role not only in broadening investor access to digital assets but also in fostering the wider acceptance and integration of digital assets in global financial markets.

Exchange-traded products (ETPs) represent a class of financial instruments traded on regulated stock exchanges during regular trading hours, mirroring the performance of an underlying benchmark, asset, or portfolio.

This category encompasses three primary types of ETPs: exchange-traded funds (ETFs), exchange-traded notes (ETNs), and exchange-traded commodities (ETCs). While ETFs function as investment funds, ETNs and ETCs take the form of debt securities. ETCs specifically monitor physical commodities like gold and oil, while ETNs cover a broad spectrum of other financial instruments. Since the inception of the inaugural ETF in 1993, marking its thirtieth anniversary this year, ETPs have evolved from mere equity market trackers to arguably one of the most groundbreaking investment product categories, offering investors exposure to a diverse range of innovative underlyings.

Especially in the last two decades, these financial instruments have demonstrated consistent expansion, culminating in a global presence of 11,859 products and 23,931 listings. These offerings originate from 718 providers listed across 81 exchanges in 63 countries. Among them, ETFs constitute the predominant share of assets, representing $10,747 billion or 98% of the overall $10,990 billion in ETP assets (according to data from ETFbook as of the end of November 2023). Oliver Wyman anticipates a heightened growth trajectory for ETFs, forecasting an annual growth rate ranging from 13% to 18% from 2022 to 2027.

“ETP is a key pillar of Apex digital assets strategy for institutionalising blockchain for regulated financial institutions, who are struggling with regulatory, compliance or operational challenges related to direct exposure on balance sheet to digital assets.”


Bruce Jackson, global chief of digital assets at Apex Group and board member of AG



“A bitcoin ETP would offer convenience and security to investors who do not want to deal with the hassle of managing their own private keys or trusting third-party custodians. It would also enable financial advisers to easily allocate bitcoin to their clients’ portfolios using familiar and trusted platforms.”


Laurent Kssis, independent board member of AG and crypto ETP veteran
