Liquidnet Japan adds MetaBit to network

01 December 2009  |  1419 views  |  0 Source: Liquidnet Japan

Liquidnet Japan, the global institutional marketplace, announced today that it has completed the system connectivity development with MetaBit, a Japan-based financial solution provider for institutional investors.

Through MetaBit's intuitive XiliX trading platform, MetaBit users can now join Liquidnet's 592 Members (as of September 30, 2009) that trade large blocks of stocks among themselves anonymously, with significantly reduced transaction costs. Liquidnet's patented technology allows institutional asset managers to link order management systems, giving buy-side traders a first look at the world's largest pool of natural liquidity.

"We are pleased to have established connectivity with Liquidnet," said Daniel Burgin, CEO of MetaBit. "By enabling access to the Liquidnet system, our clients will have the opportunity to expand their block trading capacity to help achieve best execution."

"We are very excited to partner with MetaBit, a well-respected financial technology provider that services some of the largest and most sophisticated asset managers in Asia," said Lee Porter, head of Liquidnet Asia. "There is a strong interest among Asian institutions to be considered for inclusion in our marketplace. This agreement will allow those firms that join our marketplace to realize the effectiveness of our trading platform."

In the third quarter of 2009, Liquidnet had an average trade size in Asian equity securities of US$897,829 which, in some cases, represented several days of average daily volume in some stocks. Despite the challenge of sourcing liquidity of that size, Liquidnet Members traded 95% of transaction within the bid/ask spread and 65% at the mid-price.

Also in the third quarter of 2009, Liquidnet continued to build momentum in the region, as it set quarterly records for principal traded and the number of executions. Liquidnet's average daily liquidity in Asian equity securities increased over 10% quarter-over-quarter, as a result of the participation of 155 live Members in our system.
