Liquidnet appoints two new specialists to join Australian business


Liquidnet, the global institutional investment network, has announced the appointment of two new hires to their Australian business.  David Barrett-Lennard joins Liquidnet’s growing Execution and Quantitative Services (EQS) team and Andrew Murphy as Relationship Manager.

David joins Liquidnet after six years in equity sales and trading with ITG, and a similar stretch at CMC Markets.  He has forged strong Australian buyside relationships and built a deep technical knowledge of algorithmic trading.  In his senior position within Liquidnet’s EQS team, David will further support the expansion of the firm’s execution services into Australia.

Andrew brings strong financial services and global markets experience through roles held at Deutsche Bank and ANZ (Australia, London and New York).  He will work closely with the firm’s existing client relationship team, ensuring Australian members can effectively leverage Liquidnet’s entire Execution Ecosystem (including block trading, algorithmic modeling and execution, and market intelligence capabilities).

Commenting on the appointments, Liquidnet’s Head of Australia, Kate Weidenhofer, said: “We remain focused on helping buy-side traders achieve optimal results that can positively impact fund performance.

“Bringing these two experienced hires on board will further strengthen and deepen our relationships with members as we continue to enhance the Liquidnet Ecosystem. We welcome David and Andrew and look forward to drawing on their expertise to support our growing Australian team.”
