Saying Goodbye to Titles, And Hello to Responsibility
Q. Tell me about some of the values of your culture.
A. One is personal responsibility. I tell this to our new people during orientation, but if you see something that we're not doing right and you don't say something, then it's on you. If you think that everyone on the leadership team is taking into account everything that could possibly go wrong, you're wrong. It's everybody's responsibility to help us run this company better than we can do it by ourselves...
The last few months have seen many conflicting reports on high-frequency trading (HFT) and its impact on the market volatility, liquidity and safety. No sooner does one report criticize the practice, another one endorses it, layering confusion about the markets and deterring investor trust in the ability of the markets to perform their primary function.
Launched in 2001 as an alternative platform for fund managers to negotiate large blocks of natural liquidity directly and anonymously, Liquidnet has grown into a full-service institutional brokerage providing executions in U.S. and international equities. Today, Liquidnet operates a global institutional trading netowrk in 39 equity markets across five continents, with offices in London, Toronto, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Sydney and Singapore. Following its 2007 acquisition of Miletus Trading, Liquidnet offers a full suite of algorithms, and has expanded its range of value-added services to include data analytics as well as commission management. As the next step in its evolution, the company is looking to match corporate issuers with buy-side liquidity.
Yes, Washington, D.C., there is a market where large blocks of stock get traded. It’s called Liquidnet. In April, the average trade size on this “dark pool’’ of institutional orders was 43,309. And its participation rate is high. Roughly 700 institutions with about $8.6 trillion worth of equities under management use the network. These mutual funds, pension funds and other asset managers execute big trades between themselves or use the venue’s eight algorithms to execute transactions, even if they extend to other venues.
Seth Merrin says his dark pools provide better pricing for investors.
Trading technology revolutionary Seth Merrin is trying to do what no one else has done: overthrow the investment banks' reign over share issuance.
Seth Merrin's pursuit of more sources of liquidity, on behalf of institutional intestors, is taking Liquidnet well beyond its established territory.
Dark pools face greater scrutiny by regulators. These off exchange trading venues, where prices are only revealed on completion should not be expected to be more transparent, argues Seth Merrin, chief executive and founder of Liquidnet, one of the world's largest dark pool operators. He explains why some pools are darker than others and those which trade for institutions rather than retail investors and in greater bulk than exchanges and at better prices should be exempt from new rules.
Despite the finger pointing, today’s market remains riddled with high-frequency traders and dark pools. Here’s what you should know about both.
