The Company

Opture Office

OPTURE AG is one of the leading providers for risk management software in Europe. The company was founded in February 2002 by Dr. Dirk and Dr. Mark Noetzold, who are today still the sole owners of the company. OPTURE was originated as a spin-off company from the consulting firm Noetzold & Noetzold GmbH, which is also specialised in risk management and strategy development. The name OPTURE is derived from the part of the sentence "OPTimize the futURE", because the objective of risk management is to assess, control and manage the uncertainties of the future.

OPTURE AG is represented with its customers in over 80 countries, with offices in Switzerland (Zurich and Hombrechtikon), Germany (Hamburg) and England (London). We are specialised in the areas of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), Internal Control Systems (ICS), Simulation-based Planning (SBP) and Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC). Our customers are predominantly industrial companies, but also banks, insurance companies, funds, foundations and authorities. The Opture software is used by companies of all sizes, both in international DAX-/SMI-/Nasdaq-companies as well as in small and medium-sized enterprises.

Preceding on the basis of OPTURE AG's level of target attainment and growth over the last few years, we are planning to almost double our business within the next 5 years, starting from 2021. The company is fully self-financed, without borrowed capital and without third-party equity capital. The growth of OPTURE AG is financed exclusively from operating cash flows.

We will achieve our growth targets through the development of new software products in risk management, as well as through the opening up of new international markets.

  • Accept. by Employees

OPTURE AG was founded as a spin-off company of the consultancy firm Noetzold & Noetzold GmbH, which is specialised in risk management. Since 2002 we have been supporting industrial companies of all sizes in the development and/or establishment of their risk management systems. As innovation and technology leaders, it is our goal to optimise the added value of risk management for our customers by developing innovative methods, models and technologies.

The Opture software is one of Europe's leading risk management system solutions for industrial companies. Regarding Opture's technology leadership, we have over the years developed many risk management methods and models that have become standards and benchmarks. The Opture software is intuitive to operate, modularly extendible, customisable, flexible to administer and easy to implement.

The technical implementation of the Opture software is simple and efficient because Opture is compatible with all established databases and servers. When implementing the content of a risk management system, we are strictly focussed to the requirements and specifications of our customers with regard to the areas of application of risk management, e.g. risk control without KRI (-> risk documentation), with MC simulation and with KRI (-> risk controlling) or risk-adjusted planning (-> simulation-based planning).

There is a very high degree of acceptance of our employees among our customers due to their long-term experience, their seniority and their knowledge in the field of risk management. Before joining OPTURE AG, all of our employees were in executive positions with other companies and already had several years of practical and/or theoretical experience in the area of risk management. We employ IT experts (software developers, service technicians, etc.) and risk managers (consultants).
