BATS Exchange, a leading U.S. equities exchange operated by BATS Global Markets, today announced new pricing for its U.S. listings business.
With the new pricing, exchange-traded products (ETPs) that trade more than 400,000 shares per day will be eligible for a free listing on BATS Exchange. BATS had previously offered free listings to any ETP that traded more than 2 million shares per day. Under the new pricing, 223 ETPs market-wide will currently be eligible for a free listing on BATS.
BATS Exchange will also be introducing a Lead Market Maker (LMM) program for its listings business beginning June 2. The LMM program, which has been approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), is a new rewards-based program designed to incent market makers based on the amount of executed added liquidity they provide in BATS-listed securities for which they are an LMM. The new LMM program is designed to provide even greater incentive to market makers to provide liquidity in less actively traded products, which can strengthen their appeal as an investment alternative for retail and institutional investors.
The LMM program will complement the existing Competitive Liquidity Provider (CLP) program, which rewards market makers for tighter quoted spreads with increased liquidity in BATS-listed securities, and is currently slated to become an optional issuer-sponsored, add-on program later this summer.
“Multiple market model offerings is an important strategy in making BATS’ listings platform more attractive to the broader issuer community,” said William O’Brien, President of BATS Global Markets. “Just as our trading customers have diverse needs, ETP issuers can have differing needs from their listing venue. With free listings to more ETPs, combined with the flexibility of both an LMM and CLP market model, issuers now have greater control to determine how best to maximize the value of a BATS listing.”
“As we grow our listings business, we’re continually looking for new ways to bring value and help make markets better for today’s issuer,” said Brian King, Director of Listings at BATS Exchange. “We’ve listened closely to the unique needs of today’s ETP issuers, both large and small, and our LMM program is designed to help improve market quality for issuers, while the new pricing structure will help issuers save on listing fees.”
More than 26%1 of all ETP trading in the U.S. markets happens on the BATS exchanges, making BATS the #1 exchange operator in ETP trading. BATS launched its U.S. listings business in December 2011. The BATS Exchange is also known as the BZX Exchange.
