Liquidnet hires head of execution and quantitative services

Liquidnet, the global institutional trading network, has appointed Chris Jackson as European head of Liquidnet’s execution and quantitative services (EQS) group.

In this new role, Jackson will be responsible for developing the strategy of the European trading desk and algorithmic services group, as well as heading the senior sales effort for Liquidnet’s global algorithmic offering with European clients.

Jackson has over twenty years of experience and joins Liquidnet from global bank Citi, where he was head of execution sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Prior to Citi, he spent twelve years at Merrill Lynch as head of sales across program, transitions and electronic trading.

Building the EQS team has been a focus for Liquidnet over the past year, with the appointment of New York-based Rob Laible as global head of EQS Liquidnet in July 2014, and three further hires to the team in December 2014.

Liquidnet’s network currently includes nearly 780 asset managers, providing them with services including trade advisory and execution solutions to assist with liquidity and efficiency.
