Meet The Team

Buddima Dalpathadu

Founder and CEO

Buddima, a former tech YouTuber turned trader, transitioned from options trading to forex and indices just to take advantage of prop firms. He later founded a fintech-specialized marketing firm, collaborating with well-known prop firms (three of them are now top 10 in the industry). Motivated by a desire to improve industry practices and address the needs of stocks and options traders, he established Arctic Funding. His vision is to enhance transparency in trading through content and build a versatile platform supported by a talented team, catering to forex, futures, and options traders alike.

Nikolai Hauck


With five years in the trading space, Nikolai has experienced the highs and lows of the trading journey. He always aspired to be funded, but his focus on stocks and options was not supported by prop firms at the time. To bridge this gap, he has partnered with industry experts to introduce funding opportunities for traders like himself. As CMO, Nikolai is committed to extending these opportunities to the trading community through Arctic Funding.
