Its first fund offered was the DigiLog Full Portfolio. As of Aug. 1, 2007, DigiLog had $744 million in assets under management. TradeLink carried out the first trade on the Chicago Climate Exchange in 2003.[2]

TradeLink has an electronic trading interface in commodity options, financial futures and options, and currency futures and options at all major U.S. exchanges and most international ones.
