Liquidnet has made a strategic, unspecified, investment in OTR Global, an alternative research company providing market intelligence for institutional investors.
Headquartered in New York, OTR Global has a team of more than 200 reporters around the world conducting approximately 38,000 in-depth interviews per year with sources to generate intelligence on specific sectors and on-demand topics.
Liquidnet says OTR's network will add value to its Management Access business, improving efficiency and transparency between institutional investors and corporate management.
OTR Global's research services, along with its own ability to connect investors with company management teams, "create a competitive advantage for institutional investors looking for differentiated investment ideas and validation".
Seth Merrin, CEO, Liquidnet, says: "Our decision to partner with OTR is in recognition of our Members' increasing usage and reliance on primary intelligence in their investment decision-making process."
