PARTNERS AND ADVISORS
FOUNDER AND CEO
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.
Dorian is a software engineer and an entrepreneur. He is passionate about helping companies by creating tailored web and mobile applications that streamline business processes. Thanks to his hard work and focus on optimization, Dorian helped groups such as SNCF-RESEAU, THALES, or ACCOR by creating personalized, tailor-made solutions focusing on improving their efficiency. These digital solutions helped those groups save money by being more efficient in their optimization.
He gained project and team management skills by exposure to different roles like Team Lead, Engineering Lead, or Technical Project Manager. Still, he always remained close to the technical aspects of his work.
Ankit is a versatile professional who has acquired significant experience in a wide array of corporate avenues like project management, business development and sales. He has a background in Engineering and a keen interest in commodities. Trading brought him to France, where he graduated with a master’s degree from the ESCP Business School, London & Paris. Brimming with confidence and raring to break new grounds he started his voyage in commodities with an internship as a Broker in Biofuels & Feedstocks with Greenea. In this internship, he helped in the organization of the biofuels market research, sourcing and managing raw materials from waste streams with the purpose of increasing sustainable feedstock options for biofuels producers.

- How come it is so difficult to get FOB sugar prices worldwide, and how can you get them?
FOB values for sugar are negotiated between big trading houses, not easy to get by nature. Even some information/analysis companies are trying to report them, but with much less accuracy than us as they are not involved in any of the trades. Deepcore is a major Sugar brokerage company in this intertrade market, it is our role to know those values, and actually even to “make” them with Traders.
- Is there a minimum period of data subscription required?
No, you can try our services for 1 month only if you want.
- Besides a physical sugar prices database, do you have other types of data you can provide?
Yes, we have other types of data sets for both sugar and soybeans that we can provide to fit the needs of our clients.
- Can I download the data from your website?
Yes absolutely, the subscription allows you to download the database at any time. We are also developing an API to connect directly to your spreadsheets.
- Are you working with Hedge funds, or only sugar merchants and industrials?
