Liquidnet has selected Solace Systems’ Unified Messaging Platform as a key component of its liquidity matching service.

Liquidnet is using the Solace 3260 Message Router to accelerate messaging around the world.

“Providing our Members with fast and reliable access to liquidity is at the heart of our business,” said Brett Kotch, head of architecture at Liquidnet, in a statement. “Solace came to us not as a vendor, but as a business partner, and we've defined the next-generation infrastructure that will help us extend our position of leadership in trading services.”

Added Craig Betts, CEO at Solace Systems, “Liquidnet is the premier provider of trading services for the institutional buy-side. We are grateful for the opportunity to help Liquidnet accelerate and simplify their middleware to better serve their Member firms.”
