Liquidnet Strengthens Fixed Income Team, Hires Nichola Hunter as Global Sales Head

Liquidnet, the dark pool operator owned by TP ICAP, announced on Monday the appointment of Nichola Hunter as the Global Head of Sales for Fixed Income. She will be based in London and report directly to Mark Russell, who is Liquidnet’s Global Head of Fixed Income.

According to the company’s press release, Hunter will take the responsibility for growing Liquidnet’s client relationships.

“The combination of Liquidnet’s state-of-the-art electronic platform covering all aspects of the trading lifecycle, combined with the distribution and reach that comes with being part of TP ICAP group, the world’s largest interdealer broker, distinguishes our offer in the market,” Hunter said in a statement.

“I am excited to join the team and to help drive the next stage in its growth strategy.”

Strong Background in the Finance Industry

Hunter brings more than 25 years of experience to Liquidnet, which became a part of TP ICAP last year.

She joined Liquidnet from MarketAxess, where she was the Head of Rates for more than a couple of years. She joined that company after it acquired LiquidityEdge, where she spent five years, first as the COO and then as the CEO.

Further, she worked at ICAP for over eight years in several executive roles, including as Co-Head of EBS Market, the Global Head of Product Management for EBS, and also the Global Head of Client Services for the company’s Electronic Broking business.

“Our Fixed Income business is developing at pace,” said Russell. “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.”

Earlier this year, Liquidnet onboarded James Rubinstein as the Head of Execution and Quantitative Services (EQS) for the Americas. The company brought in £62 million in revenue in the first quarter of 2022, thus contributing significantly to its parent’s quarterly figures.
