MarkIT Boat

Filed under: 2015, Mifid — holky @ 2:07 pm

Just to close the circle, MarkIT buys BOAT … which already claims 68% of the off-exchange trade reporting and roughly 25% of the equity trades in Europe.



  1. Getting out while the getting out is good!

    Markit—hmmm a company owned by those same 9 banks—funny no?

    Do you really think volumes of trading volume will be going through in europe or the US after the bubbles all burst and these markets plummet, institutions fail, etc?

    Oh yes…Market Data on smaller numbers of transactions will be of much less value…

    of course as most of the 9 banks…institutions all over seek new top line revenue—they will all sell the data directly to anyone who will buy—no longer a need for an aggregator…

    just part of the cycle of life on the street.

    All interesting. Oh ya…Im sure the Markit liquidity event will be coming soon.
