Liquidnet, the global institutional trading network, announced that it has further expanded its global equities trading desk with new hires in both New York and Hong Kong. In addition to the core algorithmic, program and single-stock trading capabilities, the agency-only trading desk is powered by an innovative suite of Liquidnet Virtual High Touch™ products including: Targeted Invitations, Algo Ranking Model and Course Correction.

“We recognize that our global clients need increased choice and control in today’s changing liquidity landscape,” said Rob Laible, Liquidnet’s Global Head of Equity Strategy. “Our global trading desk is flexible by design: whether you want to interact with Liquidnet’s global USD $78B per day of natural block liquidity or more controlled access to multiple dark venues and lit markets.”

New additions to the Americas team include Sunny Duggal and Geoff Benarick. Duggal joins as the Head of the Trading Desk – Americas. Before joining Liquidnet, he managed the Program and Electronic Trading Desk at Societe Generale and held prior positions with RBS and Goldman Sachs. He brings 15 years of experience trading global equities, ETFs, corporate buybacks and Delta 1. Geoff Benarick joins Liquidnet from Citigroup Global Markets and brings 20 years of experience in program trading and electronic execution.

In Hong Kong, Enrica Leung joins the team as an Execution Trader. Prior to joining Liquidnet, Leung held positions at BNP, Barclays Capital and Macquarie. Enrica brings nine years trading experience and headed up the Dealing Desk at Barclays Capital.

Liquidnet’s Global Trading Desk offers a comprehensive agency-only trading service to help traders achieve their execution goals and minimize the footprint of orders in the market.
