Happy Holidays from Liquidnet

At Liquidnet, we believe that it’s never too early to teach the value of giving back. Now in its 11th year, Liquidnet kids for kids channels children’s creativity to make a difference through charitable giving. Liquidnet Members’, partners’, and employees’ children were all invited to create a drawing based on the theme “How will you make a difference?” Maeve, age 8, won a $250 GlobalGiving gift card to support the charitable project of her choice. All other kids who participated will receive a $50 GlobalGiving gift card and will appear in the printed Liquidnet kids for kids book.

Significantly increased volatility prior to a block execution is an indicator of information leakage, which can have an adverse effect on execution quality. Read the summary paper here.
