The London Stock Exchange admitted seven new iShares ETFs, taking the total number of ETFs on the Exchange to 200.

The new iShares ETFs admitted to trading are: iShares MSCI Pacific ex-Japan; iShares MSCI Europe ex-EMU; iShares FTSE Developed World ex-UK; iShares Barclays Government Bond 5-7; iShares Barclays Government Bond 10-15; iShares Barclays Euro Treasury Bond and iShares FTSE Gilts UK 0-5.

The issuers on the Exchanges ETF market are: Deutsche Bank, ETF Securities, Invesco Powershares, iShares and Lyxor. Between them, they issue 78 ETFs based on developed market equity indices; 21 fixed income based ETFs; 41 ETFs tracking emerging markets indices; 53 ETFs covering a broad range of industrial sectors or specific asset classes such as property, private equity or commodities, and seven style ETFs that focus on specific investment approaches such as small caps or companies with a record of strong dividend payments. In addition, there are now 123 Exchange Traded Commodities and one Exchange Traded Note.

It is testament to the attractiveness of the ETF model that at time when equity markets are perceived as being quiet, the ETF market has continued to expand, with very strong trading activity, and regular new product issuance, says Pietro Poletto, head of ETF and ETC Markets, London Stock Exchange Group.
