Digging Liquidnet With ITG’s Shovel

“Not that the story need be long, but it will take a long while to make it short.” – Henry David Thoreau

With the help of our ITG modeling – and a recently discovered S-1 filing for Liquidnet from 2008 – we present the following storyboard. Though some of you will miss the lyrical wordsmithing, this one is presented without the usual auditory accompaniment.

Perhaps this will help lubricate some questions from the audience…

Using data from our ITG model, and some old financial data from Liquidnet’s S-1 filing in 2008, we were able to leverage current headcount and contextual revenue per employee (RPE) estimates to update the current revenue estimate for Liquidnet.

This is one small example of the benefit of Alphacution’s “Sudoku Puzzle” modeling methodology.


As always, if you value this work: Like it, share it, comment on it – or discuss amongst your colleagues –  and then send us feedback@alphacution.com.

As our “feedback loop” becomes more vibrant – given input from clients and other members of our network, especially around new questions to be answered – the value of this work will accelerate.

Don’t be shy…
