A liquidity provider is an underwriter or a market maker that is a sizable holder of a given security or that facilitates the trading of the security, providing greater price stability and distribution of the securities to both retail and institutional investors. Liquidity providers guarantee transactions at the best price and boost the volume of transactions in the order book. Without their assistance, the number of transactions in the security could decrease and the ability of buy- and sell-side firms to accumulate or dispose of stock would be diminished.
A company listed on the QE Venture Market may seek to have a designated liquidity provider.
For further information or to apply to become a liquidity provider, interested parties should contact the Exchange in the first instance. Details on how to do this are provided in the Contact Us section.
