I hold an MSc in Mathematical Finance from University of Oxford, and an undergraduate degree (dipl.ing.) in Mechanical Engineering from University of Zagreb. I have been working in finance, on an institutional investor side, for the last 8 years. In this period, I have performed a very wide spectrum of tasks related to the capital markets: setting up investment funds; investment fund mergers; risk modelling/analysis; financial modelling/analysis; company valuations; setting up risk monitoring and control functions; quantitative analysis; writing design specifications for financial software modules & functions, and their implementation; business process design and mapping; design and management of internal regulations on group- and company-level; performing key compliance roles and liaising with the regulating authority; writing prospectuses for UCITS and non-UCITS funds; managed procurement of AMCo authorisation for the provision of MiFID, UCITS, and non-UCITS regulated financial services; setting up MiFID regulated services. However, I have been working closely with many startups, and have invested in a few myself. In recent time, I have been involved with an incubator, where I act as a business/finance mentor. I have also been writing business plans and investment plans for firms of various sizes, and acting as an advisor to clients in various industries, helping them procure equity and debt finance for startups and investment projects. I have experience coding and modelling in Python, VBA, and Matlab, but don't expect wonders: it's mostly been some rather simple work developing specific financial/risk modelling applications, parsing financial data from web sources, etc. I have a deep understanding of energy efficiency and renewable energy, having advised a few clients on project financing in this area. I have been involved in several EU projects as a lecturer, leading internal trainings in financing energy efficiency projects (with focus on energy performance contracting). I am very excited by the developments in the area of cryptocurrencies, and would love to get involved with startups and companies active in this space. I will happily accept payment in BTC/LTC/Đ.

My educational track frequently meandered off the beaten path, initially studying music theory which catalyzed my interest in mathematics and physics; subjects which would unintentionally prepare me for graduate work in financial engineering. The culmination of these studies would result in the development of a career in software engineering focused on quantitative analysis and algorithmic trading in the financial markets. My introduction into the industry would be realized in analyzing, developing and improving financial models for market making energy, foreign exchange, treasury and agricultural futures and options. Being thrown into a complex software environment with only the minimal understanding of standard engineering principles, I quickly realized that the key to my success in implementing many of these models would reside in improvement of my systems engineering prowess. Some modeling successes, many late nights at the office, and more than a few beers later, I was working as Manager of Financial Engineering at Hanley Group Capital. As I developed my software engineering skill set, learned new languages and design paradigms, and matured as an "implementer" as opposed to a "theorist", I quickly found myself rising in rank on the software development side. A few successful major projects down the road, and a major acquisition in the bag, I had ascended the engineering ranks to Director of Software Development at INTL Hanley. In that capacity I oversaw the development, management, operation and delivery of high frequency trading functionality for proprietary market making in the futures and options markets. Emerging challenges in the US regulatory environment began to directly affect a large chunk of our OTC activities at INTL Hanley. This situation was the catalyst for my proposition of a design for a liquidity routing, monitoring, reconciliation and reporting system spanning all companies under our parent entity INTL FCStone. This plan was approved by global INTL leadership and I was awarded funding and autonomy to create a global division for data exchange. This program maintained and opened up new OTC trading activities in the US and abroad, allowing INTL to remain competitive with much larger investment banks, brokerages and clearing organizations. Since my time at INTL, I have joined with a couple other Chicago trading industry technical leaders in order to build a consulting firm focused on niche high performance trading system development. We employ an extensive high frequency trading system portfolio in the futures and options markets, develop and operate a custom market analytics, system automation, and data visualization suite in order to protect draw-down risk and increase the profitability of existing strategies for our clients.

I am an experienced professional analyst with excellent skills in financial and optimisation modelling and programming. My programming experience is mainly in SQL Server stored procedures as well as VBA (Excel macros). I use different platforms depending on the complexity of the problem. Financial modelling is normally performed in Excel and my Excel skills is on expert level. Optimisation models are developed in Excel or by using a modelling platform e.g. AIMMS. Lastly I have managed a number of development projects from conception to commissioning. I have an eye for details and pride myself in delivering high quality solutions.
