Xylinq was founded by Tom Sanders and Bharat Bedia.
Cargill Investor Services (CIS) formed a new team, the Securities Financing Group (SFG), to take on the opportunities presented by the influx of Hedge Funds. A major part of the SFG team's strategy was to make heavy use of synthetics financial products.
After a thorough vendor selection process, CIS chose Xylinq for their business & technological expertise as well as their high performance synthetics trading platform.
Xylinq worked closely with SFG traders, operations staff, financial controllers and credit risk management officers to deliver a fully tested trading systems platform on time and within budget.
