CEO
Monetary Metals
May 2012 - Present (5 years 11 months)

Monetary Metals is the pioneer of gold investments. An investment is an asset bought with the expectation of a yield. We developed and manage a fund that provides a yield on gold, paid in gold. This is the first true gold investment since the 1930’s. Investors in this fund are high net worth individuals, family offices, funds, and institutions. The company also publishes analysis of the gold, silver and credit markets.
