FTMO is a proprietary firm incorporated in September 2015. They have offices in Prague in the Czech Republic while offering traders capital up to $2,000,000 in balance with up to 90% profit splits. They are partnered with a liquidity provider that supplies the institutional data feed with the direct market access execution model on their live corporate accounts.

Now, let’s talk about the CEO of FTMO:


Otakar Suffner is the CEO of FTMO, who was born and raised in Prague. He believes you don’t need a university education to be a good trader or businessman, although it certainly helps. He has a master’s degree in Economics, which he obtained from a famous university in Prague. At that time, he also studied in South Korea at Seoul National University.

Otakar has a major passion for sports; he used to play tennis when he was growing up. However, he wasn’t good enough to pursue a career out of it. Nowadays, on the other hand, he does sports 3-4 times a week. Mostly fitness, calisthenics, and kickboxing.

His journey as a trader began almost a decade ago when he started on Futures and later transitioned to Forex and CFDs, where he had more freedom with his position sizing. This was due to having a smaller account since his options were extremely limited at that time. As a trader, Otakar is a very statistics-based person who believes in numbers. He likes to focus on probabilities, which enable him to create unique trading ideas.
