Welcome to Upvest, TIl!
Following the mission to build a world-class team of dedicated and experienced individuals to lead our company, we added four critical hires to our leadership team last year, including our Chief Product Officer, Til Rochow.
Having worked in financial services for almost 15 years, Til is now looking forward to democratizing finance and improving everyone’s ability to save and invest.
“We at Upvest radically modernize today’s investment infrastructure - and thus empower fintech and other partners to develop better products and universal access. It is an ambitious challenge I am looking forward to tackling with Upvest’s experienced all-star team”.
Til joined Upvest in December 2020 and makes it his mission to make Upvest’s product the perfect match for our partners.
“We strive to build the best products for digital assets and securities brokerage and custody. From a Product perspective, this entails rethinking processes and the underlying infrastructure according to the desired products, functionality, and UX of our partners - not the other way around. And we package this behind a state-of-the-art, easy to integrate API. Of course, always according to the highest scalability and security standards”.
It is not an easy task, but we are proud to have the right person for the job. In his 8+ years at McKinsey, Til worked with banks, asset managers, and market infrastructure providers on strategy, product innovation, and regulation. And has first-hand experience leading product development with fintech as the previous Head of Investment and Pension Products of Raisin.
If that wasn’t enough, a Ph.D. in household finance focusing on retail investor behavior, product usage, and better investor protection makes him the expert we were looking for.
