Tradeteq names Nils Behling as Chief Operating Officer
By Gloria Methri
Tradeteq, the technology provider for securitisation-as-a-service and bank asset distribution, has appointed Nils Behling to the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer.
He will be responsible for implementing the strategic vision and values of the company as well as change and transformation initiatives.
Behling previously held the position of CFO at Tradeteq. The new COO role formalises his already broadened remit beyond financial operations.
He will continue to work closely with CEO Christoph Gugelmann, focusing on business performance, operational management, and important transformation initiatives. This includes the ongoing development of Tradeteq’s legal, regulatory, and client-serving infrastructure across multiple jurisdictions and entities.
Behling co-founded Tradeteq alongside Christoph Gugelmann in 2016. His previous roles include trade finance investor and portfolio manager for Trafigura’s Galena Asset Management, and director in Merrill Lynch’s FICC business, where he structured complex funding and capital markets solutions for banks and real-money clients.
Speaking on the appointment, Christoph Gugelmann, CEO at Tradeteq said, “As we continue to grow as an organisation, we are serving more clients and forging deeper relationships with our partners. Nils already spearheads many of our operational and strategic initiatives. Creating a dedicated leadership position is a natural and important step in Tradeteq’s evolution and, crucially, ensures we are well-positioned for continuing growth and success.”
Nils Behling added, “I am excited to take on this new role. As COO, I will focus on developing our operating assets, processes, and structures to support Tradeteq’s growth, stay ahead of client expectations, and lead the way in delivering Tradeteq’s mission and vision.”
Tradeteq provides a marketplace and platform for private debt and real assets. Through its securitisation-as-a-service, the company transforms these instruments into traditional capital markets products and into regulated security tokens, that can be easily bought by investors.
