It’s one thing to have a great philosophy and value system; it’s another thing to execute on it. Throughout our 20 year history, the key to our success has been our employees. Working on the front-line to understand and guide our clients towards innovative technology solutions that will give them an edge in the commodities market has helped us grow from a humble development shop to a trusted business partner to the world’s leading commodity exchanges.
This market has been through many change cycles since we started Kynetix back in the mid-90’s with financial institutions participating as often as they’ve scaled back their operations in the physical economy. However, one thing is clear is that the physical economy, for all its intricacies, keeps on going as these products are relied upon to make the world go round. As long as producers keep producing, goods will need to be stored, traded and ultimately delivered.
This is where we come in.
Following the success of LMEsword and ICE Guardian, two industry leading platforms Kynetix designed and built, we took a strategic decision to build our own platform called Sentinel in 2013. Sentinel now forms the backbone of our solution offerings around Delivery & Settlement, Financing & Collateral, Self-Service inventory and Post Trade services for the Commodities markets.
With a best of breed platform supporting our clients, it became clear to us that with so much experience and expertise in this niche marketplace, our technical teams had developed vast amounts of industry business knowledge through working with the world’s leading exchanges. This is why our clients now bring us in on a strategic advisory basis to help develop new products and markets – because we understand how to unlock the physical economy through a combination of technical and business expertise.
