The $5tn financial energy market critically impacts everyone on this planet. Yet, despite its crucial importance, the technology it uses is lagging behind other financial markets, with legacy processes & systems (namely, email, excel, webchat and phone) underpinning over 90% of all energy market activities.

At Tallarium we are solving this problem, transforming how global markets are traded and how companies operate on a day to day basis. Our market-leading solution (analogous to Bloomberg in the bond & equity market) uses AI and cutting-edge data science to provide the largest Fortune 500 companies with 360-degree transparency and insights for critical business & risk decisions. In doing so, we help optimize global energy flows and direct supplies to where consumers need them most.

We are backed by top fintech VCs and supported by an exceptional board of advisors, including 4 “unicorn builders”. We have a 15 person team with exceptional energy and trading market knowledge; Oxford, Cambridge, and Imperial backgrounds; and experiences at the world’s top institutions.
