Zuul is Building Custom Middleware Solutions for Fintech

[Raleigh, 02.04.2024] — Zuul, a leading Fintech firm, is set to transform the insurance and annuity sector with its suite of middleware solutions for efficient financial data flow. 

Founded in July 2022 by seasoned tech professionals Mike Manganillo and Tim Whitney, Zuul offers solutions that ensure unparalleled speed, efficiency, and security to insurance carriers, registered investment advisors (RIAs), and managed portfolio services (MPS) firms. Its singular data network/middleware between agencies and financial service platforms allows for real-time data flow, which is more secure and reliable.

Key features and benefits of Zuul's middleware solutions include:

- Dependable real-time data feeds, ensuring access to the most clean and robust data flow available;
- Comprehensive data sets, enabling informed decision-making and improved fee transparency;
- Predictive analytics, empowering users to make data-driven decisions and optimize their financial strategies for better outcomes.

Zuul was founded by industry veterans Mike Manganillo (CEO) and Tim Whitney (CFO). Mike has over 20 years of experience in advertising, marketing, and branding and more than fifteen years in B2B, having worked for tech giants like Lenovo and Toshiba. Tim, Zuul’s CFO and a long-term private investor and CEO of TradeWinds, has over 20 years of experience in the financial industry.

Since its inception, Zuul has achieved significant milestones, including developing the MVP product, Gozer, and raising over $100K in funding from prominent investors such as Four Light Ventures.
