Instinet Joins as First Executing Broker on Appital Bookbuilding Platform

Subscribe to our newsletter

Instinet has collaborated with Appital to create a channel for buy-side firms to gain greater exposure to European deal flow and block trading opportunities. Instinet will be the first executing broker to work with the Appital Bookbuilding platform. Through the partnership, any deal flow that is formed and negotiated on the Appital platform can be executed via Instinet. The platform unlocks latent liquidity and drives a bookbuilding process providing deal originators with opportunities to execute large volumes with minimal market impact or risk of price erosion. Deal participants can set their own preferences to ensure they are only exposed and alerted to relevant liquidity. The platform is scheduled for launch in Europe in 2022, and is currently going through a formal onboarding process.
