Liquidnet, an electronic network provider for dark pools, announced the expansion of its trading operations to include Malaysian securities, the latest step in a plan to enable institutional investors to capitalize on the growth potential of emerging markets.
Liquidnet, which allows firms to anonymously trade large blocks of stock without traditional brokers and exchanges, said that by adding Malaysia, its clients will gain greater access to global liquidity. Earlier this year, the firm launched trading operations in New Zealand, Mexico, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, and Slovenia.
“Emerging markets such as Malaysia represent considerable growth opportunities and are therefore increasingly important for global and regional portfolio managers looking to boost the performance of their investments,” Lee Porter, the head of Liquidnet’s Asia Pacific segment said in a statement.
