Carl-Frederik ScharffenorthCEO of Pythiania AG
Carl-Frederik (aka Calle) is the CEO and founder of Pythiania AG. He holds a MSc in economics from the University of Bonn, the Certificate in Quantitative Finance (CQF) and is a certified exchange trader. He has more than two decades of professional experience in capital market regulation and trade surveillance. He has a deep technical understanding and if time allows coding makes him still happy. Before Pythiania he ran his own consultancy, which proved to him that by just consulting others the core inefficiencies of our current regulatory and technical setup won’t be overcome. Before that he was Vice President Trading Surveillance at Deutsche Boerse. In his role at Deutsche Boerse he was active and also led the Intermarket Surveillance Group (ISG). The experience of international cooperation and collaboration within the ISG is to him a founding principle for Pythiania. Colleagues describe him as a strategic, inspirational, driven and eccentric thinker who is well aware of the bias in human behavior and the importance of accounting for it in doing business.
