Liquidnet Extends MiFID II Commitment with Targeted Invitations for Algos

Subscribe to our newsletter

By Laura Burgess

Liquidnet has extended its Virtual High Touch portfolio with Targeted Invitations for Algos, a solution designed to help buy-side traders discover large-in-scale liquidity and meet some of the control requirements of Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II). Targeted Invitations is available for European equities and will be rolled out on a global basis later this year.

Targeted Invitations allows buy-side traders to seek out additional block liquidity by sending actionable invitations within the Liquidnet community, while keeping both sides of the trade anonymous. It also allows traders to add a Targeted Invitation to an algorithmic order, providing access to liquidity from Liquidnet’s natural pool, external pools and public markets, as well as discovery of hidden large-in-scale institutional liquidity held in reserve by other asset managers.

Liquidnet brought Virtual High Touch to market late last year, offering buy-side technology that combines advanced data analysis, adaptive learning algorithms, unique liquidity search tools and real-time analytics.

The addition of Targeted Invitations for Algos follows the European introduction of Liquidnet’s Algo Ranking Model in June 2017, which also plays into MiFID II. With the regulation’s compliance deadline just months away, Mark Pumfrey, head of Liquidnet EMEA, says everything the company is doing is focused on giving buy-side firms the controls they need, as well as opportunities to improve performance.
