About Rob Laible
As Global Head of Equities, I am responsible for Liquidnet’s global institutional
equities business, a trading network that includes more than 900 global Member
firms that collectively manage $16+ trillion in equity assets. Currently based in New
York, my immediate focus is providing asset managers with deep institutional-sized
liquidity, value-added execution services and advanced analytics to help traders
compete in this era of automation and data-driven investing.
I joined Liquidnet in July 2014 as Global Head of Execution & Quantitative Services
(EQS) and played a key role in developing Liquidnet’s award-winning premium suite
of algos specifically designed for institutions and their unique workflows. In 2019, I
took on the role of Chief Operating Officer at Liquidnet, overseeing the global
technology, operations, legal, compliance, marketing, and corporate efficiencies +
vendor relations departments.
I joined Liquidnet from Macquarie Securities where I was Head of Program Trading
and Electronic Execution based in Hong Kong. I joined Macquarie from Nomura
where I was Head of Electronic Trading Sales Globally, Program Trading Sales for
APAC, and Cash Sales Trading for AEJ.
Prior to that, I was Head of Lehman Brothers’ Prime Services Origination &
Electronic Trading in Asia. I also spent more than a decade at ITG in New York,
helping to build the agency broker and technology firm through developing its
advanced trading technologies.
