Appital, the technology platform for peer-to-peer price discovery and liquidity sourcing, has recruited John Coules as part of its business development team. Previously a high-touch sales trader at HSBC, Coules’ appointment comes during a period of substantial growth for Appital, highlighted by achieving $4.0bn in buyside liquidity since the introduction of Appital Insights in September 2023. With over three decades of experience in sales trading and relationship building across major European markets, Coules is set to strengthen Appital’s partnerships and enhance liquidity opportunities in the UK and Europe.

Appital’s platform provides the buyside community with access to deal flows and execution opportunities, facilitating discreet large ADV order executions through Appital Insights, which not only assesses the viability of these transactions without market impact but also connects traders and portfolio managers with significant liquidity events across relevant equities.
