Agency brokerage and trading technology provider ITG has appointed John Carillo as its new head of US portfolio trading.
Carillo, who was previously a senior sales trader at J.P. Morgan Securities in charge of marketing and trading global portfolios for institutional equity clients, will be responsible for all aspects of ITG’s portfolio trading services, including executing portfolios on behalf of all US clients and offering strategic counsel and expertise for complex portfolio transactions.
Before joining J.P. Morgan Securities in 2002, Carillo also held a senior sales trader position at Merrill Lynch, where he provided institutional clients with agency and risk-based portfolio execution and analysis.
“With the addition of John’s experience and vision to ITG’s agency offering, we can offer an enhanced high-touch portfolio trading service that will be extremely beneficial to our clients,” said Chris Heckman, managing director at ITG, in a statement.
Carillo added, “ITG is known in the industry for their dedication to client service, agency trading expertise and in-depth knowledge of the marketplace. I look forward to building upon ITG’s strong reputation as a leader in the portfolio trading space.”
