Liquidnet Tops Global Rankings for 3rd Year in a Row, Also Leads North America and Europe

Results Demonstrate Transparency and Service Are Keys to Best Execution

NEW YORK, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Abel Noser Solutions (ANS) today announced the release of its annual Global Broker Performance Study. The report mined over $7.5 trillion of equity trades to determine which brokers provide the best execution for institutional investors.

2014 Abel Noser Solutions Global Broker Rankings

Report Highlights:

  • For the third year in a row, Liquidnet ranked first in the world
  • Liquidnet led the North American and European rankings
  • Credit Lyonnais took the top spot in the Asian-Pacific rankings
  • Three agency-only brokers (Liquidnet, ITG & Instinet) made the top 10 global list
  • Four agency-only brokers (Liquidnet, Fidelity, ITG & ¬†Weeden) made the top 10 in the North American rankings

"The common denominator among the brokers that topped this year's list was their emphasis on customer-centered agency trading and transparency over dark pools and high frequency trading," said Ted Morgan, Chief Operating Officer, ANS. "By investing in technology that increases liquidity and routes trades in the most effective way, firms like Liquidnet and ITG, which finished first and second in the world respectively, are adding significant value for their clients. As trading desks at the major investment banks continue to trim headcount, the fact that three agency-only brokers made the top 10 global rankings is a testament to how investors are seeing the benefits of their business model."

Morgan continued: "In today's competitive, fragmented and opaque market environment, it has become more critical than ever for institutional investors and plan sponsors to get the most out of every commission dollar they spend. ANS' Global Broker Performance Study highlights our commitment to leveraging robust analytics and best-in-class technology to help our clients execute trades at the lowest cost and the highest quality."

Methodology

The study evaluates brokers using placement strike price results that reflect the moment when the broker first received instructions from the buy-side trader. ANS measured brokers on placement strike price summary results for the largest brokers in each region. The brokers' performance was evaluated against their "trade-level" benchmarks to assess which brokers executed best when accounting for market conditions. To calculate trade-level benchmarks, ANS leveraged its proprietary universe of measured trades, consisting of over $7.5 trillion in trading from over 500 institutions globally.

The Global Broker Performance Study is available for a small annual subscription price. Please contact info@ancerno.com or visit ancerno.com.
