Gavilon and General Atlantic: Growing an Agriculture and Energy Trading Operation
In June 2008, GA invested in Gavilon, formerly ConAgra Trade Group, a leading provider of merchandising, distribution, trading and risk management solutions for agriculture and energy resources. Gavilon is at the nexus of multiple global macro growth drivers.
GA has been instrumental in actively leveraging the firm's geographic footprint, network of relationships and expertise in financial services and business solutions to assist the management team in building a global agriculture and related energy resources platform.
