Liquidnet, the global institutional investment network, announced today the launch of Ecosystem Pro, an intelligent workflow and blotter management tool designed to help buy-side traders analyze, monitor, and automate execution strategies across multiple symbols simultaneously in Liquidnet's Execution Ecosystem.
Liquidnet's Ecosystem Pro is composed of three main features: List Detection, Create Wave and Pro Blotter.
Designed to streamline the actions taken when multiple stocks create a complex order pad, Liquidnet's dynamic List Detection allows traders to pause, leverage Liquidnet's analytical tools, and assess which execution tools fit their trading objectives. Once sorted by trading objectives and order characteristics, traders can then use utilize Create Wave to action a wave of orders at once. For example, waves can be sent to the Top Ranked Algo as identified by Liquidnet's Algo Ranking Model or to Liquidnet's Global Trading Desk for high touch execution. Orders and waves are then grouped for easy monitoring in Blotter Pro view, allowing traders to act quickly and efficiently change course as desired.
"In addition to building a massive pool of centralized institutional liquidity across 46 markets, Liquidnet has also been delivering unique capabilities to intelligently access this liquidity as well as the overall market," said Seth Merrin, Liquidnet CEO and Founder. "And, most recently, we have added customizable trader intelligence tools to manage and course correct orders as needed according to individual order characteristics and market dynamics. This makes up the Liquidnet Execution Ecosystem.
"Ecosystem Pro extends this functionality and introduces new tools designed to help our Members navigate this Ecosystem across many names and market conditions simultaneously," Merrin continued. "In short, we've combined global institutional liquidity, systematic execution tools, and analytical insights with the same guidance and liquidity sourcing capabilities Members have come to expect from Liquidnet for their single stock orders."
Having been successfully piloted over the last year, Ecosystem Pro is now available globally for all of Liquidnet's 1,000+ buy-side Member firms that are currently using Liquidnet 5. Liquidnet 5 is a desktop application for equity buy-side traders that provides access to the liquidity in Liquidnet's global execution ecosystem as well as the Virtual High Touch product suite.
