NeoNet has seen strong demand for access to Asian markets from both its buyside and sellside clients. Greg Treacy, senior vice president of institutional sales at NeoNet, said with the sustained growth in various Asian countries including China, “Hong Kong and Singapore continue to serve as a viable entry point.”
Treacy also said that NeoNet may be the only unconflicted international agency brokerage left. He added the buyside is becoming more aware of how important anonymity and neutrality are, which bodes well for NeoNet.
