Accessing Asia Pacific Liquidity: Capitalising on Opportunities in a Rapidly Evolving Landscape

In comparison to relatively stagnant rates of growth in the US and Europe, the dynamics of the Asia Pacific markets hold an obvious appeal. Financial institutions are increasingly keen to capitalise on these opportunities, while exchanges and trading venues are exploring practical ways they can increase and deepen levels of liquidity provision. 

In this report, Nicola Tavendale and Mike O’Hara of The Realization Group speak to Brian Schwieger of London Stock Exchange Group, Singapore Exchange’s Alex Lenhart, Paul MacGregor of Berkeley Futures, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing’s Chris Lee, Jon Vollemaere of R5FX, Pico’s Roland Hamann, John Knuff of Equinix and Telstra’s Andy Mather about the drivers behind these liquidity shifts and how technology and connectivity services are contributing to the region’s prospects for growth.
