Luminex was Built by the Buy Side for the Buy Side

Our Focus

Developing intuitive trading technology that enables traders to efficiently source block liquidity

Efficiency. Transparency. Control.

  • Block Discovery: Innovative trading technology starts with a “hybrid” platform supporting FIRM and CONDITIONAL orders with minimum required block quantities and the option to negotiate for increased order size.
  • Controlled Trading: Transparent trading rules and protocols help protect trade anonymity and minimize information leakage.
  • Low-Cost Model: Low-commission model creates opportunities for buy side firms to pass on savings and potential improved portfolio performance to their clients.

A Commitment to Trust

  • Unique Industry Consortium: Serving as a forum to address critical industry issues and needs.
  • Vetted Subscribers: Minimizes information leakage and provides superior quality execution.
  • Investor-Centric: Protect clients’ trades and work for the benefit of all.
