ZISHI Adaptive and Elite analyses and delivers a world-first: personalised physiological performance data that enables traders to tap into their own optimal trading states.
The time between beats is sometimes called Inter-beat Intervals (IBIs) or R-R intervals and is usually measured in milliseconds (ms). R-R intervals are very different to Heart Rate (HR) or Beats Per Minute (BPM). HRV looks much closer at the small heart fluctuations that occur in response to everything that happens both inside and outside of our body. By applying the right calculations to these barely perceptible R-R interval changes, we can figure out exactly how ready we are to handle things like intense exercise, a big presentation at work, or any other stressful situation. This is all possible thanks to a certain branch of our Autonomic Nervous System (ANS).Contact Us
Partnering with world-leading professors from UCL and top scientists in the field of information technology and artificial intelligence, ZISHI Adaptive leverages the potential that exists within advanced technologies and tools to gives us a superior framework within which to recruit the best talent for our network.
Far from the technology taking centre stage however, OSTC upholds a firm ‘human in the loop’ approach, which means AI will always be used to enhance the way we recruit and reduce subjective bias, but never replacing the real world view that makes us who we are.
As a Group, we’re also enlisting the data insights already available to us to develop a supportive and entirely personalised (and data protected) mentoring tool. Designed to offer traders ‘lifelong learning’, this level of smart support is capable of changing how we understand, how we trade and how we reach new levels of performance.Contact Us

With over two decades pioneering educational technology and Artificial Intelligence, Professor Rose Luckin is considered a bit of an industry visionary.
Collaborating with the ZISHI Adaptive team during the past twelve months, Professor Luckin’s consultancy in AI is helping OSTC to pioneer systems that will leverage current data to promote better decision making and enable ‘smart’ mentorship. In her words, “it is about shifting people’s mindsets about AI so that they start thinking about intelligence differently, and how to achieve more intelligent behaviour and action through a blend of artificial and human intelligence.” Focusing on the integration of technology for accelerated human performance, Rose shares OSTC’s own sentiment perfectly: to enhance – not replace – the human experience.
Hannah originally began her OSTC career as a Trader in 2009. She has a wide range of experience in Futures markets, from energy to soft commodities, metals and interest rates, and focused much of her activity on world-leading exchanges including ICE, CME and EUREX. In 2018 she changed direction to join OSTC’s central knowledge suite, ZISHI. As Head of Education, Hannah supports all educational initiatives and offers hands-on support for our global network of universities, as well as core guidance on the programmes and eLearning that’s available via the ZISHI Adaptive module.
Lew was one of the first professors of sport psychology in the United Kingdom, and is one of a very small number of people to have given keynote and invited addresses at all the major sport psychology conferences in the world. He has over 100 full-length research publications and served three Olympic cycles as chairperson of the British Olympic Association’s Psychology Steering Group (from 1989 to 2000). His central research interest is the psychology of very high-level performance, including the effects of stress, mental toughness, motivation, the utility of psychological skills and strategies, transformational leadership, and teamwork. He has been responsible for over £1 million pounds of grant capture and has equal applied experience working across military, business, and sport domains.
Andrew obtained his undergraduate degree from Bangor University in 2007 and his PhD from the University of Birmingham in 2010. His research investigates psychophysiological responses to competition / stress, and the psychophysiological response patterns that characterise optimal human performance. He has also conducted neuroscience research designed to train golfers to control their levels of brain activity before executing putts and applied these learnings on the green with some of the world’s leading pro golfers.
trading multiple asset classes whilst based in the Swansea office. He’s since taken his expertise into Europe and headed up OSTC Iberia, managing three bustling trading floors across Madrid, Seville and Lisbon. Today, Chris directs ZISHI Adaptive and ZISHI Elite, consulting with UCL professors and sports scientists to incorporate cutting-edge technology into the trading and training arm of the business.
Within Adaptive, Chris is currently working to integrate AI into three core areas of OSTC’s future-facing roadmap: recruitment, training and mentoring.
Matt gained his first-class undergraduate degree, Masters degree, and PhD from Bangor University. Matt has two research foci. The first concerns the motives for, and benefits of, participation in high-risk sport. The second pertains to the development of Super-Elite performance in Olympic sports. In these lines of research, Matt has worked with some of the UK’s best expeditionary mountaineers, as well as Olympic medalists, and Tour De France winning cyclists. Matt rode professionally as a mountain bike trials rider for ten years and continues to enjoy riding, climbing, and any opportunity to get out and up into the mountains.
