Multi-asset trading technology provider Dash Financial Technologies has announced its latest hire, this time bringing in its previous longtime executive Stino Milito, who rejoins the group as its newest Co-Chief Operating Officer.
In his new role, Stino is based out of the group’s Chicago office and leads the office along with Co-COO Tim Miller. He will be responsible for developing the group’s business across its buy-side client base and will also be tasked with enhancing Dash’s consultancy-led approach as head of Institutional Buy Side and head of Product Strategy.
Mr. Milito brings over twenty-five years of experience to the role, having worked in multiple sectors. Prior to re-joining Dash Financial Technologies, he served most recently as Director of Trading at ED&F Man Capital Markets, one of London’s largest commodities trading houses.

The bulk of Stino’s career has been dedicated to Dash, where he took on a variety of roles over a seven-year period. He originally joined the group back in 2010, and just before jumping to ED&F in December 2016 he was named the company’s managing director of trading.
According to information made public on his Linkedin profile, Stino’s expertise across such a diverse set of roles and business segments will help advance Dash’s institutional business development strategy. Earlier in his career, he worked as options market maker on the floor on the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).
Commenting on his return to Dash, Mr. Milito said: “I’m thrilled to be back and working with the highly skilled Dash team again. The opportunity before us has never been greater. Historically the ability for firms like Dash to compete for equity business on pure trading performance was virtually non-existent. But that is changing quickly with regulatory catalysts like MiFID II, which have created more opportunities for providers who are product and technology driven. Today, the buy side is reimagining what their execution counterparties should be, and the ability to provide institutions with full visibility into and control over their routing behavior is the name of the game. We’ve helped our clients do exactly that for years and believe our platform will continue to be a game changer.”
