Manuel Heyden, CEO, Co-founder of Nextmarkets, joins me on the Tech Talks Daily Podcast. He started his career in 1999, founding his first online marketing company at the age of 19. Since then, Manuel has followed his passion for product development, design, and online marketing, especially in the financial technology sector.
After spending two and a half years in investment banking with ABN AMRO Bank in Frankfurt and London to establish an online brokerage company, he founded the social trading company, ayondo, in 2007 and sold most of his shares in 2014. Manuel holds a Master of Science from European Business School, Oestrich-Winkel.
Manuel shares his vision for Nextmarkets and how he and his team are passionate about improving the way private investors trade on the stock markets through education. I learn how Europe’s commission-free online broker considers itself as an exchange coach, analyst, and trading platform in one.
In a world of up and downs, private investors can be accompanied by more than a dozen trading coaches in an innovative way, so that the term “curated investing” has been created. I also learn more about the technology that makes all this possible.
Nextmarkets, with offices in Cologne and Malta, currently employs 35 people and is backed by leading venture capitalists such as Peter Thiel, Falk Strascheg, and the publicly listed FinLab AG.
