Liquidnet global head of equity strategy Rob Laible said the acquisition would "fill a void in the trader's toolkit" and help traders comply with the MiFID II regulations.

"We believe that a firm that incorporates OTAS analytics and our VHT platform into their trading strategy will be able to show a process and commitment to consistently achieving best execution for each and every order," Mr Laible said.

OTAS Technologies was launched in 2011 and is headquartered in London.
