Company

WHO WE ARE

Global Liquidity Partners (GLP) is a technology company that focuses on electronic execution technology. The GLP business model is entirely performance-driven. GLP technology has been utilized to provide execution services for a wide range of clients, including broker-dealers, asset managers, hedge funds, wealth managers, and investment advisors. GLP offers a comprehensive suite of algorithmic strategies with an emphasis on customized solutions.

OUR CULTURE

From its inception, GLP has fostered an entrepreneurial spirit among employees in the search for and delivery of solutions to clients. The fragmentation of the equity marketplace over the past 10 years has produced frustration and at the same time has created opportunity. The “nimble” culture of GLP and the responsiveness that it encourages and demands has been a significant contributor to the success of the firm.

Meet Our Leadership

TIM LANG, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Tim Lang, the CEO and Founder of Global Liquidity Partners, is an equity trading professional with over 40 years of Wall Street experience.  Tim’s vision of GLP in 2010 was driven by his belief that there was a technology void in the equity marketplace due to all of the emerging fragmentation of trading venues.  His goal was to create a best-in-class, performance-driven equity execution services platform.  His role at GLP is all-inclusive as he remains active in strategy design, marketing, client relationship management and staffing.

Over Tim’s career he has traded equity and other asset classes, managed trading desks and served on management committees at Merrill Lynch, Spear Leeds, National Discount Brokers and Swiss American Securities.  His interest in technology, insight into the potential of electronic trading and entrepreneurial spirit motivated his founding of Phoenix Third Market.  He was an early advocate of NMS committees and served on many through those early years.
