Narrow spreads and high trading liquidity . . .
UBS Asset Management works in cooperation with reputable trading houses (Market Makers) to ensure that investors in UBS ETFs are able to trade at fair prices at all times – including large volumes. Constant tradability is one of the major benefits of exchange traded funds. ETF market makers commit themselves to quote binding buy and sell prices during stock exchange hours, thereby ensuring liquidity. In this way, investors in UBS ETFs gain buying and selling flexibility – not only during quiet periods but also in times of high volatility.
. . . through a multi-market maker approach
The multi-market maker approach for UBS ETFs fosters competition among ETF market makers, resulting not only in narrow spreads, i.e. small differentials between bid and ask prices, but also in higher liquidity. UBS Global Asset Management is committed to ensuring a high degree of trading quality for UBS ETFs, offering investors liquidity and price advantages.
Depending on the product and stock exchange, more and more market makers are active in UBS ETFs.
