Liquidnet, the global institutional trading network, today announced the appointment of Takis Christias as Head of Trading Strategies EMEA.

Takis brings more than twenty years of experience in quantitative analysis and trading strategies and will be responsible for the continued build out of the electronic execution offering across the Liquidnet platform.

“Takis is a key addition to Liquidnet’s algorithmic design and development team in EMEA. The ability to optimize execution strategies to navigate the changing liquidity landscape is crucial to our clients,” commented Mark Pumfrey, Head of Liquidnet EMEA.

Christias joins Liquidnet from Citi, where he held a number of senior roles in the electronic trading space including head of algorithmic products in EMEA, leading a team of quantitative analysts and developers as well as being responsible for the business logic behind the BCN and SOR. More recently he was responsible for their central risk automation effort in EMEA.

“Joining Liquidnet during this exciting period of growth is a fantastic opportunity. I believe we can bring clients real efficiencies to the sourcing of liquidity and trading across this increasingly complex landscape,” said Christias. “Liquidnet’s innovative electronic trading offering means that clients can not only cross large blocks internally, but also quickly and easily obtain access to liquidity across external markets.”

Christias will join the Execution and Quantitative Services (EQS) Group to help further expand Liquidnet’s offering, including designing, implementing, and customizing Liquidnet’s suite of execution strategies and analytics while also providing quantitative research and market microstructure insight. He will report to Chris Jackson, Head of EQS EMEA.
