Liquidnet, the global institutional trading network, today announces the appointment of Dan Squires as a Sales Director focusing on European hedge funds. Dan brings over twenty years of industry experience to this role and will be responsible for expanding Liquidnet’s membership within the hedge fund community.
Adam Sussman, Liquidnet's Head of Market Structure and Liquidity Partnerships, talks about how the Dark Pool Value Index (DPVI) does not take into account the magnitude of difference among the dark pools. In a brute ranking system, the end results dominate the story and the difference between 1st place and 2nd place becomes easy to overlook. This can mask the fact that there are some dark pools that have meaningful differentiation – and that many are very similar.
