Jeff Seeley was one of the two traders who were on the team that started Cargill Risk Management (the OTC commodity derivatives dealership) in 1994. The other trader left in 1995 and Jeff went on to lead and train the most successful traders over the following 2 decades. For 10 years, he led the team that worked most closely with farmers and elevators.
While managing his various portfolios, Jeff was exceptionally successful in finding and exploiting relatively mispriced options in both the OTC and listed markets.
During and prior to his time at Cargill, he was also atypically adept at recognizing option prices that presented tradable arbitrage and/or near-arbitrage opportunities due to conditional probability.
In addition to managing the trading business he led, beginning in early 2008 Jeff took on a leading--and subsequently award winning--role in the management of Cargill’s margin-call driven working capital stabilization.
