During March 2017 there was a continued high percentage of volume from lower-rate sell-side clients, as well as increased trading activity from index clients associated with rebalance events, resulting in a decline in overall average revenue per share as compared to both February 2017 and the fourth quarter of 2016.

International Trading Activity
The average daily trading commissions in March 2017 in ITG’s Canadian, European and Asia Pacific businesses were up approximately 7% in U.S. dollar terms on a combined basis as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.
