Take a Tour of Liquidnet's Trading FloorLiquidnet is a full-service institutional agency brokerage firm whose core mission is to provide block liquidity to like-minded buy side traders.
Launched in 2001, Liquidnet's pool of natural liquidity enables fund managers to negotiate large blocks of equities directly and anonymously with each other. Today, Liquidnet operates a global institutional trading network in 39 equity markets across five continents with offices in London, Toronto, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Sydney, and Singapore. Expanding its value-added services for the buy-side, Liquidnet now offers a suite of algorithms, data analytics, as well as commission management services. A few years ago, Liquidnet formed an Equity Capital markets Group to focus on helping corporate issuers access institutional liquidity through share buy-backs and At-the-Market offerings. Now it's building technology to connect institutions with private shares.
