A London monetary know-how firm has confirmed that it has reached an settlement to be acquired in a multi-million pound deal.
Liquidnet, which gives know-how options to market merchants, is about to be acquired by skilled middleman TP ICAP for between £444m to £540m ($575 to $700m).
The deal, which is predicted to finish within the first quarter of 2021, will create a UK-headquartered international monetary markets infrastructure supplier.
Nicolas Breteau, CEO of TP ICAP, commented: “Buying Liquidnet is a novel alternative to remodel TP ICAP’s development prospects by materially accelerating the execution of our electronification, aggregation and diversification technique.
“Liquidnet is a premier, technology-driven, international digital buying and selling community with greater than 1,000 buyside shoppers.
“It has a powerful and trusted model, which we are going to each retain and develop. We’ll proceed to put money into, and develop, Liquidnet’s main darkish/block Equities enterprise, and preserve its place as a trusted and unconflicted company dealer.
“We intend to build on Liquidnet’s capabilities and connectivity, and expand its offering, particularly in respect of D2C electronic trading in credit and rates. Further, we expect to leverage the data assets and analytics expertise of both organisations to drive non-transaction-related earnings.”
Brian Conroy, CEO of Liquidnet, added: “We’re energised by the chance of mixing the strengths of TP ICAP and Liquidnet.
“This transaction underscores the relevance and future prospects of a enterprise we began twenty years in the past, and which has grown to turn into not solely a pacesetter in international institutional equities block buying and selling, but in addition one of many world’s premier buyside-focused digital networks.
“Together, we will be able to better serve our customers, whilst simultaneously delivering innovative market solutions to a broader range of institutions, across a wider range of asset classes and market segments.”
