Market makers (liquidity providers) offer extra assurance to investors. Market makers’ task is to maintain bid and offer orders of a certain size within a defined price spread on a continuous basis. Investors benefit from reduced liquidity cost and reduced risk through more efficient pricing. Market makers make listed companies more attractive for investors, especially those seeking large-size investments.
