GoldMoney, a gold-based financial service and technology group, has named John Butler as new vice president and head of wealth services.
In addition to his new role, Butler will contribute to the GoldMoney Insights content platform, a growing network of research and multimedia content providing thought leadership around gold, currency, energy and savings.
Butler, who has over 20 years of experience in international finance, previously worked as managing director in research, strategy, asset allocation and product development roles at Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers.
He has also advised many of the world’s largest institutional and private investors in matters ranging from wealth preservation to enhancing returns.
Butler said: "I look forward to working with Roy, Josh and the entire GoldMoney team to provide a range of innovative and competitive wealth services to our clients across the world, from those just beginning their upward mobility, to those protecting their wealth and legacy."
GoldMoney chief strategy officer Josh Crumb said: "He has worked in senior roles at major investment banks in multiple countries and has developed products and strategies for both institutional and private investors.
"Most important, he understands gold’s unique properties which make it an essential part of any diversified investment process, and the only valid international measurement to determine sustainable-long term prosperity."
