Sean Smith, managing director of derivatives licenses at FTSE Russell, painted an upbeat picture of current Russell 2000 volume when he spoke to John Lothian News at FIA Expo 2019. He credited global demand for small-cap Russell derivatives from European and Asian investors as one factor behind the increase, along with the move of Russell 2000 futures to the CME Group, and ongoing hedging opportunities between CME Russell futures and Cboe Russell options.
