It’s all about liquidity
The derivatives trading landscape constantly evolves. However, finding sources of liquidity and deep liquidity pools remains a key aspect within the investment decision process. Building liquid benchmarks can help investors assuring flexibility and certainty of execution. The right combination of market measures combined with a level playing field for liquidity providers can support liquidity. To what extent are liquidity criteria considered during the investment process and what guidelines are taken into account? What are the preferred ways of trading and does it differ depending on a specific asset class?
