TTMzero: Revolutionizing Financial Markets with Digitized Regulatory Tech

A glimpse into the journey of TTMzero and its innovative solutions for the financial industry.
Simon Ullrich TTMzero founder

The Birth of TTMzero: Adapting to Changing Regulations

In 2016 Simon Ulrich and Sönke Blunck founded TTMzero, a regulatory fintech company that is now transforming the banking industry. The two met each other while working on the trading floor in the same bank. From working on the Chicago Board of Trade to implementing digitization projects, Simon observed how banking regulations influenced trading behaviour and recognized the need for innovative solutions.

Embracing Digitized Regulatory Tech for Better Efficiency

During his time on the trading floor, Simon noticed that too much time was spent on compliance and risk control requirements, instead of executing trading strategies. He understood the need for technology to solve these issues and allow banks to focus on their core competencies. 

Following the financial crisis in 2008 and the collapse of Lehman Brothers, new financial regulations like MiFID and PRIIPs were introduced. These regulations introduced new transparency and disclosure rules that required independent valuation of instruments traded by banks. This sparked the idea of founding TTMzero as Simon realized that the market needed a solution to help banks comply without excessive expenditure on internal development.

TTMzero: A Success Story

Over the past decade, Simon and Sönke’s idea has proved to be successful. TTMzero has grown to serve more than 30 customers globally and attracted a talented team of 25 highly experienced professionals.

Their strategy for the future revolves around the principle that knowledge attracts knowledge. TTMzero‘s solutions, which leverage real-time trade data, OTC real-time prices, and evaluated prices, help banks automate production processes, solve regulatory requirements, and use human capital better.

By combining digitized regulatory tech, real-time trade data, and OTC real-time prices, TTMzero is at the forefront of revolutionizing the financial markets, delivering efficient, innovative solutions to banks and financial institutions worldwide.

Navigating the Future of Financial Regulations

While regulation presents challenges for financial institutions, TTMzero views it as an opportunity. As a software provider, TTMzero is prepared to develop new solutions in response to evolving regulations. In addition, with the expectation of more homogeneous regulatory environments globally, banks can benefit from solutions that apply to various jurisdictions, thus optimizing efficiency and ensuring compliance.

TTMzero provides a wide range of solutions which allow financial institutions to automate their regulatory requirements and production processes while allowing them to reach their full potential.
