Asia’s equity markets are known for being illiquid, prone to information leakage and expensive to trade in relative to the West. Despite these challenges, it is incumbent upon buy-sides to find the most liquidity at the lowest possible price. Moreover, clients may have reservations about who they are trading against and from where liquidity is being provided. With this in mind and a mandate for best execution throughout the trading lifecycle the sell side is faced with a daunting task and a perplexing riddle for which they must solve.
