The Mutual Fund Dark Pool Is Almost Here

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

The mutual fund industry's own dark pool is close to coming online.

Yesterday Boston-based Luminex Trading & Analytics revealed plans to open for trading next quarter. Luminex is backed by a consortium of nine giant asset managers: BNY Mellon [profile], BlackRock [profile], Capital Group [profile], Fidelity [profile], Invesco [profile], J.P. Morgan Asset Management [profile], MFS [profile], State Street Global Advisors [profile], and T. Rowe Price [profile]. The pitch is that it will be an "independent platform for investment managers with a long term focus to trade large blocks of stock with other investment managers," while keeping the high-frequency traders and the associated high trading costs out of the pool altogether.

News about the Luminex alliance first broke in January. Michael Cashel, senior vice president of Fidelity Trading Ventures, was Luminex's interim CEO.

Luminex also has a new senior leadership team. Jonathan Clark takes over as permanent CEO, succeeding Cashel. Brian Williamson serves as head of sales, James Dolan as chief compliance officer, David Hagen as head of product, and Daniel Consigli as controller.
