Arnaud started his career as an FX & interest rates trader in the banking sector. He joined the sugar industry at the end of 2013 and took over an intertrade brokerage desk in the Brazilian, European, Indian, and Thai sugar markets. After a few years in the industry, he realized that sugar and many other commodities markets were extremely late in digitisation compared to other financial products and B2B business. The idea to create The DeepCore began in 2017 when he realized the growing demand for better and more efficient brokerage in the commodities sector and the number of problems traders were facing with their current solutions.

Arnaud has a keen interest in new technology, digital platforms, big data, and quantitative analysis. He often meets and talks with brokers or traders of other commodities to see how the « Core-In » platform and our AI research solutions can diversify their offering and create value in the process.
