It was back at the turn of the century that Tony Saliba founded LiquidPoint, the broker-dealer known for its options execution management technology that at one point executed a fifth of daily options volumes. LiquidPoint would eventually be sold to ConvergEx Group in 2007, which in turn would spin off LiquidPoint to Dash in 2017, forming Dash Financial Technologies. Saliba remained with LiquidPoint through 2014.
Saliba said he swore he’d never get back into the broker-dealer space, but in 2018 it was announced he was launching Matrix Executions, a multi-asset broker dealer serving both the buy and sell-side. It’s a new endeavor, but Saliba is bringing back together veterans from his LiquidPoint days to help the firm through its nascent stages.
In this first video, Saliba talks about why he got back into the execution and routing space, bringing the team together and the firm’s approach.
