Since FINRA began publishing ATS volume, brokers and other analysts have used the data in various ways to rate or rank the various trading venues. However, we believe that none of the analysis presents this data in a way that is relevant to asset managers. To help fill this void, Liquidnet has developed the Dark Pool Value Index that ranks each ATS based on the factors that are most meaningful to an institutional investor (market share, market share symbol rank, and trade size by symbol).
Liquidnet, the global institutional trading network, today announced the appointments of two senior hires to its European Execution & Quantitative Services (EQS) team. Launched in 2014, the EQS group advises Liquidnet’s buy-side Members and institutional clients on algorithmic strategies, trade analytics, and quantitative products and services.
