Leading financial data marketplace S3 Partners has reportedly joined forces with LiquidityBook LLC, a leading provider of the cloud-based trading platform.

The deal will help S3 Partners expand its distribution network and services to a diverse roster of sell- and buy-side firms, including lending agents and prime brokers.

Following the strategic partnership, S3 Partners’ Blackwire OMS will be made readily available through LiquidityBook, allowing users to access action rates, liquidity, and grade and rank the quality of both loans and borrows.

Through S3 Blackwire, users can introduce algorithmic technology and data science to expedite the efficiency of the complete stock loan workflow platform.

S3 Partners’ CEO and Managing Partner, Bob Sloan, expressed that the impressive multi-asset platform of LiquidityBook supports the complete lifecycle of the order across the sell- and buy-side, making it an ideal partner for the company.
