Thanks to a record-setting number of new engagements, we finished the decade with our strongest year yet. The discussion around SaaS-based technologies and the benefits they offer on cost, functionality and service continues to be a key factor in firms’ willingness and desire to migrate from legacy platforms. People today clearly recognize how valuable web-based apps are in their everyday lives, and it’s only logical that there is a growing market for this model in the trading technology space as well.

He added:

It’s no secret that investment professionals must today offer more diverse products across the cap structure to stay competitive and retain assets. It is therefore very important to have a foundational product like LiquidityBook that can move with you as your business demands it to. Our workflow and asset class flexibility is one of the primary drivers for our 2019 growth, and based on our pipeline, we expect to see similarly strong demand in 2020.

In addition to the SaaS based model, LiquidityBook’s products employ the Amazon Web reliable and secure cloud services. This significantly decreases the need for third-party hosting, connectivity, trading, data back-up or business continuity planning services. It also allows for consistency in its services through weekly updates at a competitive prince point. LBX’s platform has flexible graphical user interface and allows custom columns creation and calculations.
