Dash Financial Technologies, provider of one of the industry’s most advanced multi-asset trading technology and execution services platforms, today announced that it collected a pair of awards at Markets Media’s 2018 Markets Choice Awards. Dash was named “Best Algorithmic Trading Provider” for its SENSOR™ suite, while the firm’s Chief Operating Officer, Tim Miller, was named a “Rising Star” at the New York City awards ceremony held April 24.
Sensor is Dash’s signature multi-asset router, designed to accommodate extreme liquidity capture. It allows institutional users to optimize execution costs, providing a highly customizable execution solution for any strategy, preference or workflow. The Sensor suite includes Dash’s proprietary Algo Wizard, a unique interface allowing the customization of a broad universe of algorithmic parameters providing a tailored experience for every order. Used in conjunction with Dash’s analytics platform, Dash 360, SENSOR provides an unmatched level of transparency, performance and control.
Commenting on the award for SENSOR, Dash CEO Peter Maragos said: “It’s obviously extremely gratifying to be recognized by the industry in this way, and a testament to the tremendous effort put forth by our entire team. We thank Markets Media for the recognition and look forward to continuing working with our clients to develop the innovative trading solutions they require to navigate today’s markets.”
As COO, Mr. Miller manages the trading and support operations for a firm that executes approximately 14% of OCC’s options volume, touches an additional 20% of OCC options volume and trades a growing portion of the US equities market. After starting his career as a Cboe floor broker, he has been with Dash since its 2011 launch, taking on increasingly significant management responsibilities for Dash’s client service organization since that time.
“Calling Tim a rising star is a bit of an understatement, since in our opinion he is a star who’s risen,” said Mr. Maragos. “We’re fortunate to have him as a member of our management team, and we all look forward to watching his career continue to flourish.”
