In 1982 Edmund Hor came to Britain from Hong Kong, aged 15. He founded Trayport in 1993 to carry out IT contract work. But as he had worked as a commodities and foreign-exchange trader while at university, it was no surprise that the company’s first client was an energy broker. This work led to the development of software for online trading of energy, commodities and currency. The company claims that 2,700 trading screens worldwide now run its software. Sales have grown 182% a year from £136,000 in 1999 to £1.1m in 2001.
