PARIS, July 28 (Reuters) - Pan-European stock exchange operator Euronext (ENX.PA) on Wednesday reported a 53.7% rise in quarterly net profit to 82.1 million euros ($96.6 million), boosted by high trading volumes amid market volatility sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Euronext, which operates bourses in Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon and Dublin, reported revenue up 32.5% at 210.7 million euros, citing "a dynamic environment".

Changing perceptions about the future of the global economy in the midst of the coronavirus crisis have driven high trading volumes. Average daily cash trading was up 20% year on year at 10 billion euros in the quarter, the bank said in a statement.
