One can sympathize with growth-oriented European companies that want a territorial market in which to sell their shares. But as EASDAQ - the European Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation - opens for business today, the question remains as to who will provide investors with the liquidity.

Ebb & Flow polled the some of the players for an answer to this question.
