Liquidnet Expands Fixed Income Business with Key Appointments

Liquidnet, a technology-driven agency execution specialist, recently announced the appointment of Nichola Hunter as the firm’s Global Head of Sales for Fixed Income.

In fast-evolving markets, Hunter will be tasked with growing customer relationships through the delivery of tailored and innovative solutions. Based in London, she will be reporting directly to Liquidnet’s Global Head of Fixed Income, Mark Russell.

Mark Russell stated:

“Our Fixed Income business is developing at pace. In just a matter of months, we’ve introduced new protocols to trade both primary and secondary markets. We’ve also expanded geographically. As we continue on our mission to support the full lifecycle of a bond and a trader’s need for execution choices, Nichola’s knowledge and expertise will be a key factor in our ability to harmonize the offering and ensure it is truly tailored to the needs of the industry. I am delighted she is on board.”

Hunter brings more than 25 years of professional experience in banking and electronic trading.

She has played a key role in supporting the evolution of the fixed income market. Before working at Liquidnet, she was serving as Head of Rates at MarketAxess, a firm she joined after the acquisition of LiquidityEdge LLC, where she worked as CEO.

Before LiquidityEdge, Hunter reportedly held senior-level positions at ICAP including co-head of EBS Market, Global Head of Product Management for EBS and Global Head of Client Services for ICAP’s Electronic Broking business.

Nichola Hunter, Liquidnet’s Global Head of Sales, Fixed Income, remarked:

“The combination of Liquidnet’s state-of-the-art electronic platform covering all aspects of the trading lifecycle, combined with the distribution and reach that comes with being part of TP ICAP group, the world’s largest interdealer broker, distinguishes our offer in the market. I am excited to join the team and to help drive the next stage in its growth strategy.”

As noted in the update, Liquidnet claims it is “a leading technology-driven, agency execution specialist that intelligently connects the world’s investors to the world’s investments.”

Since its founding in 1999, the firm’s network “has grown to include more than 1,000 institutional investors that collectively manage $33 trillion in equity and fixed income assets.”

As mentioned in the announcement, TP ICAP is “a global markets infrastructure and data solutions provider.”

The Group “connects buyers and sellers in global financial, energy and commodities markets.” They claim to be “the world’s largest wholesale market intermediary, with a portfolio of businesses that provide broking services, trade execution, data & analytics, and market intelligence.”
