Technology

ETP managers value the critical impact of our technology on their investments. Access an automated platform that leverages data to help improve product development, implementation support and ongoing guidance.

Our technology platform is completely integrated, combining the unique advantages of each of the core systems. At the heart of our ETF data strategy is the following:

  • The ETF Management Tool - a bespoke application to facilitate the coordination of portfolio data across all platforms and index providers to deliver custom PCFs and baskets to APs and portfolio managers.
  • The ICE ETF Hub - a front end, order entry system that seamlessly connects advisors, authorized participants, and other service providers with unique functionality for order entry and custom basket negotiation on all order types.
  • Industry leading fund accounting and transfer agency systems that underpin and manage the data flow from order entry right through to NAV calculation and share issue through our Common Depository.

All delivered as part of a global operating model that leverages the full power of our EU and U.S. based ETF support teams.

What's driving demand in the ETP space?

Recent industry and regulatory developments have expanded the types of ETPs that issuers can bring to market and streamlined the process for launching new funds. New products include non-transparent and semi-transparent ETFs that do not have to disclose their holdings on a daily basis, leveraged, inverse, and inverse-leveraged funds, and cryptocurrency related products. Our professionals can guide you through the benefits, risks and strategies surrounding these and other ETFs.
