The Mako Group is excited to announce the successful acquisition of Liquid Capital’s APAC operations in Australia and China. The deal, completed on April 5, 2023, is set to expand Mako's global footprint.
Liquid Capital has a long and successful history providing liquidity in exchange traded derivatives, and this acquisition will further enhance Mako's APAC offering. The decision to combine Liquid’s APAC operations was a natural strategic progression following an earlier transaction in January 2022, in which Mako on-boarded Liquid Capital’s London trading team.
Mako Founder, David Segel, commented on the acquisition: "We are thrilled to welcome the experienced team from Liquid to the Mako group. Their proven track record and commitment to excellence align with our own values, and we look forward to collaborating and growing together."
Mako is confident that this collaboration will unlock new opportunities and drive growth for the combined entities. There are no plans for significant changes to the business model, and the impact on employees from both companies is expected to be minimal as we build a path towards full integration in the coming months.
