NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dash Financial, a leading FinTech company devoted to bringing unfettered transparency and institutional-grade performance to the U.S. options and equities markets, today announced that its highly customizable, cutting-edge SENSOR™ algorithmic suite has won the Best Buy-Side Algorithmic/DMA Product or Service category in this year's Waters Buy-Side Technology Awards which was held at The Meridian Piccadilly in London.
Judged by a nine-person advisory panel comprised of leading industry consultants and analysts, Dash was selected for its broad, technologically advanced and completely transparent suite focused on performance and fee optimization.
"Each year we receive a number of outstanding entries to the best buy-side algorithmic/DMA product or service category, but this year Dash Financial and its SENSOR™ algo Suite/algo Wizard really stood out," said Victor Anderson, Editor-in-Chief of WatersTechnology. "The ability to customize behavior at any level and by any category is one of Dash's distinguishing features, which, when combined with its commitment to real-time transparency, makes for a highly compelling, buy-side focused trading infrastructure."
DASH's SENSOR™ algo suite is completely customizable via its Algo Wizard, a proprietary software layer which allows the tailoring of parameters, behaviors and techniques at the firm, strategy, portfolio manager and even symbol without the need for re-coding and lengthy release cycles. The results of any changes are immediately apparent in the Dashboard- a comprehensive, real-time, web-based reporting layer delivering access to every component of the routing and execution process. Dash clients are able to see where their orders are being routed and why, along with the market conditions and depth of book snapshots down to the microsecond that each order is routed. This tool is a crucial element in algorithmic attribution, analysis and further enhancements / customization.
"Since our launch in 2011, we have worked incredibly hard to produce creative, institutional-grade and completely transparent execution solutions. This is an honor I am very proud to accept on behalf of the whole Dash team," said Peter Maragos, Co-Founder and CEO of Dash Financial. "We look forward to continuing to listen to and work with our clients to further our pipeline of best-in-class solutions that enable the buy-side to achieve the highest level of performance, transparency, and service."
