GoldMoney, one of the world’s leading online precious metals traders has announced it is to be a sponsor of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) in Jersey.
Head of European Business Development at GoldMoney, Martyn White said: ‘STEP works hard to help maintain the high standards of our Trust industry in Jersey through its CPD events and the various qualifications it supports. Our customers often buy precious metals as a wealth preservation tool and so it seems a natural fit for us to help support STEP in its aims.’
Gold as an asset class has a long history of wealth protection. It has recently been included in the Jersey Retirement Annuity Trust Schemes (RATS) and is seen as a key ingredient for helping provide a diversified portfolio.
The Jersey branch of STEP is one of the largest and most active in the world. Commenting on the sponsorship agreement, branch chairman Tony Pitcher said: ‘We are delighted to welcome GoldMoney on board. The support of our sponsors enables us to provide a range of seminars and conferences throughout the year. These events expose our members to experts in the field of trust and estates thus adding to the expertise available in the Island.’
Jersey based GoldMoney has over 22,000 customers worldwide and stores over US$1.4 billion of precious metals in its partner vaults.
