Liquidnet, the global institutional trading network, set a new trading record in Australia during May 2012, trading over AU $1 billion in member trades. Earlier this year, Liquidnet celebrated its four-year anniversary of trading in Australia, providing institutions with the ability to get into and out of positions quickly, safely and efficiently.

“Our recent success has coincided with the introduction of market competition in Australia which has highlighted the need to trade in size safely, without information leakage and without anyone taking advantage of our Member’s order size. Performance today is all about execution,” commented James Chatfield, Head of Liquidnet Australia.

Liquidnet also continues to be the preferred choice for investors executing large block trades in Australia. Liquidnet’s average trade size of AU $1,573,916 for May 2012 was 224 times the ASX average of AU $7007 over the same period. Today, Liquidnet Australia’s network includes 48 domestic asset management firms that are live and trading on the system.
