The ETF Ecosystem

The ETF Manager is supported by Participating Dealers and Market Makers in ensuring the smooth tradability of the ETF.

Participating Dealer (PD)

A PD serves as a party appointed by the fund, facilitating the creation and redemption of ETF shares in the primary market.

The unique mechanism for creating and redeeming shares through a PD enables large transactions for institutions, wealth managers, and fund managers. In other words, institutional investors may buy ETF in bulk directly with PD that is close to the index performance at Net Asset Value.

The MM plays a crucial role in facilitating a high volume of purchases and sales. They create liquidity in the market as they stand ready to execute trades at a publicly-quoted prices. Without them, each buyer would have to wait for a seller to match their orders.

ETF Issuer / Manager
