Q. As a buyer how can I benefit from putting up prices onto the platform?

A. There are many benefits for buyers to put up prices on the platform. We think this is a key component of price discovery as well as opportunity creation for buyers. Instead of being a price taker buyers can show the price they are prepared to trade at (and this can be amended during the life of the order). If the price is for example 3% below the market you might not get filled, but you might, or you might get a better counter-offer as a consequence. The best thing is, it doesn’t hurt you or cost you to have a go, it only creates an opportunity for you. The worst that can happen is you don’t get any takers, in which case you can react accordingly.
