Our Fixed Income business is developing at pace. In just a matter of months, we’ve introduced new protocols to trade both primary and secondary markets. We’ve also expanded geographically. As we continue on our mission to support the full lifecycle of a bond and a trader’s need for execution choices, Nichola’s knowledge and expertise will be a key factor in our ability to harmonize the offering and ensure it is truly tailored to the needs of the industry. I am delighted she is on board.
With more than 25 years of experience in banking and electronic trading, Hunter has played a key role in driving the evolution of the fixed income market.
Prior to Liquidnet, she served as Head of Rates at MarketAxess. She has worked with the firm since its acquisition of LiquidityEdge LLC, where she served as CEO. Before that, Hunter held senior positions at ICAP including co-head of EBS Market, Global Head of Product Management for EBS and Global Head of Client Services for ICAP’s Electronic Broking business.
