Reciprocity widens access to liquidity

Reciprocity widens access to liquidity Usage of non-displayed trading venues continues to accelerate in Asia and tools for dark liquidity aggregation are increasingly in demand.“Dark pool trading has been growing rapidly in the region; our Asia-Pacific pools alone each grew between 100% and almost 600% last year,” explains Joel Hurewitcz, Instinet’s head of product strategy, Asia. “In that kind of environment, the firms that offer access to the widest range of liquidity destinations are going to be able to best reduce costs for fund managers and, ultimately, the end investors.” http://www.ftseglobalmarkets.com/

Usage of non-displayed trading venues continues to accelerate in Asia and tools for dark liquidity aggregation are increasingly in demand.“Dark pool trading has been growing rapidly in the region; our Asia-Pacific pools alone each grew between 100% and almost 600% last year,” explains Joel Hurewitcz, Instinet’s head of product strategy, Asia. “In that kind of environment, the firms that offer access to the widest range of liquidity destinations are going to be able to best reduce costs for fund managers and, ultimately, the end investors.”

With that context in mind, Instinet has now agreed a reciprocal liquidity agreement between its Asia-Pacific broker-dealer units and JP Morgan, broadening the Asian liquidity access opportunities available to each firms’ institutional clients. According to Hurewitz says the agreement is the latest step in the firm’s effort to connect to all meaningful pools of liquidity in the region.“Since 2010, we’ve been proactive in pursuing innovative new ways for our clients to efficiently trade the rapidly fragmenting Asia-Pacific equity markets,” says Hurewitz. “Deals such as this offer the buy side access to additional sources and types of liquidity, and ultimately provide the luxury of choice in how they implement their trading strategies.”

Instinet clients may use the firm’s Nighthawk® liquidity aggregation algorithm to access JPM-X in Hong Kong, Japan and Australia, while JP Morgan clients will be afforded access to Instinet BLX Australia, CBX™ Hong Kong and CBX™ Japan.
