Liquidnet’s strong performance signals beginning of rotation back to equities

RELATED TOPICS​

Institutional trading network Liquidnet has reported strong quarterly performance in EMEA and a record first half in Asia Pacific.

 
In addition, for the second year running Liquidnet has achieved the ranking of number one brokerage firm in both the global and North American rankings by Abel/Noser Solutions, provider of broker-neutral pre-trade, real-time and post-trade tools for institutional investors.
 
“We have built a company with a global liquidity pool that is truly unique in its scale, safety and size of execution. As the money being pulled from bond funds starts to flow back into equities, asset managers will continue to rely on Liquidnet to execute in much larger size without moving the market. It simply means better performance for their funds,” says Seth Merrin, founder and chief executive at Liquidnet. “The consistency of this ranking as best broker is a significant reason why Liquidnet remains a top destination for institutions looking to maximize performance.”
  
The first half of 2013 showcased a renewed surge in equities investing compared to the year prior. Liquidnet’s APAC region experienced a record first half of the year. Aside from launching Thailand, Liquidnet’s 10th market in Asia Pacific and 42nd market globally, the region also reported record average daily liquidity up 27 per cent for the first half of 2013 at USD10.5bn from USD8.3bn in the first half of 2012. The execution size for Asia Pacific for the first half averaged USD1.25m.
 
Liquidnet EMEA also had a very strong first half, average principal traded rose 57 per cent to USD359m in the first half of 2013. Globally, average daily liquidity showed an uptick of 24 per cent compared to same time last year – up to USD81.6bn from USD65.6bn in principal.
