Calyon Financial was a subsidiary of Calyon specializing in institutional futures and options brokerage, and was also a member of the Crédit Agricole Group.[1]

The company was established in 1987 as Carr Futures, with offices in Chicago, Paris and Singapore. In 1997, Carr Futures was acquired by Crédit Agricole, and in 2004, Carr Futures was rebranded as Calyon Financial.[2]

On January 2, 2008, Calyon Financial merged with Fimat to become Newedge, which is jointly owned in a 50/50 split between the two forming company's parent banks, Calyon and Société Générale.[3] At the time of the merger, Calyon Financial was ranked 8th among FCMs by the CFTC, by segregated funds.[4]
