9:50 AM - 10:50 AM - Buyside View of Alternative Liquidity Solutions
Much of the oxygen in market structure discussions rightly focuses on exchanges and ATS, which represent a significant majority of market share. However, retail and principal liquidity have been on the increase, whether from wholesalers, SDPs, CRBs or other principal, representing new avenues for unique liquidity. For this panel, we want to explore two areas of evolution in off-exchange liquidity, retail and principal liquidity, by engaging the buyside for a discussion of their experiences with these sources. We will cover existing vehicles which are working for clients, and views on where and how liquidity access can be improved.
