Vladan Jovanovic

Co-Founder / CTO

Vlad was formally educated in mathematics and technology at the Department of Ballistics Engineering at the Yugoslav Military Technical Institute. Upon completion of his training, he was involved with Eastern Europe’s first independent TV station (YUTEL) and created the first independent computer network in Yugoslavia.

He left the region during the infamous conflicts of the 1990s and established himself in London, where he founded Communicating Ltd in 1996. Communicating Ltd produced the first wireless trading system over GSM as well as the first internet-based bandwidth exchange.

Vlad’s obsession with speed, coupled with his comprehensive understanding of transactional architecture and its physical limitations, has inspired the most elegant and most importantly, the fastest known advanced solutions offered by the Aquarius matching engine.
