Former Temenos execs found GenAI banking tech start-up, yPilot


Two former Temenos executives, Todd Winship and Rayce Rossum, have co-founded yPilot, a fintech startup specializing in GenAI technologies for financial institutions.

Established earlier this year and headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, yPilot aims to be a leader in AI innovation for banks and credit unions.

The company offers a “banking-specific, embeddable AI” platform designed to help financial institutions enhance customer satisfaction, combat fraud, and ensure compliance.

Todd Winship serves as the CEO, while Rayce Rossum is the CTO. Rossum spent seven years at Temenos, beginning as a senior software engineer and advancing to senior principal data scientist, where he worked on AI projects with banks such as Canadian Western Bank (CBW) and UBS.

Winship joined Temenos in 2011 following the acquisition of his business intelligence company, Primisyn. Founded in 2007, Primisyn provided data and analytics solutions to the Canadian credit union sector, and by the time of its acquisition, it had around 25 credit unions using its Microsoft-based Simplus Enterprise Suite. Winship remained at Temenos for nearly 13 years, leading the data and analytics business line as global product director.

“We are creating the future of financial services one intelligent application at a time,” yPilot states on its website.
