Cboe Australia Welcomes BlackRock’s iShares ETFs


Cboe Australia has listed new exchange-traded funds
(ETFs) from iShares by BlackRock. This step places BlackRock among the major asset management firms listing its iShares ETFs on every Cboe exchange globally.

Dave Howson, the Executive Vice President and Global
President at Cboe Global Markets, mentioned: “This latest listing of
iShares ETFs on Cboe Australia is a major milestone and a significant step
forward to deliver on Cboe’s global listings vision. Cboe is the only exchange network in the world
facilitating access to global capital and secondary liquidity by offering an
efficient path for asset managers to list across our five listings
exchanges.”

The newly listed iShares ETFs on Cboe Australia
include iShares MSCI World ex Australia Momentum ETF (Ticker: IMTM), iShares
MSCI World ex Australia Quality ETF (Ticker: IQLT), and iShares MSCI World ex
Australia Value ETF (Ticker: IVLU). Cboe is one of the largest ETF listing venues in the
US, hosting over 680 ETF listings. According to the press release, Cboe
Australia accounts for up to 40% of the Australian ETF daily trading volume.

Last month, The US Securities and Exchange
Commission approved the applications of 11 asset management firms for spot Bitcoin ETFs. These
ETFs were authorized to be listed on US stock exchanges, including NYSE Arca,
Nasdaq, and Cboe BZX, and are available for trading starting today.

The approved issuers are ARK 21Shares, Invesco
Galaxy, VanEck, WisdomTree, Fidelity, Valkyrie, BlackRock, Grayscale, Bitwise,
Hashdex, and Franklin Templeton.

Bitcoin ETFs Poised for Record Inflows

Analysts speculate significant inflows into Bitcoin
ETFs, estimating between $50 billion and $100 billion in the first year.
However, the SEC’s Chief Gary Gensler clarified the approval’s scope,
emphasizing it does not reflect approval for crypto asset securities.

The recently launched Bitcoin ETFs in the US
experienced an inflow of $1.9 billion in three trading days, led by industry
giants BlackRock and Fidelity. Lower fees and brand recognition played a
significant role in attracting investors to specific ETFs.

The challenge for spot Bitcoin ETFs lies in gaining
acceptance among institutional investors, including pension funds and
investment advisers. Currently, the value of iShares Bitcoin Trust is more than USD $6 billion.
