Who We Are

Our Story

Goldmoney® was founded in 2001 by James Turk, an international banker who spent 40 years in the financial services industry at The Chase Manhattan Bank and the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.

James, his eldest son Geoff, and several prominent financiers came together to establish a financial institution that would recognise gold's significance as a financial asset. They understood the valuable role it would play in a global economic system that was, for the first time in thousands of years, unlinked to precious metals. Before Goldmoney, the opportunity to preserve purchasing power and diversify wealth with precious metals had been inconvenient, expensive, and restrictive.

Our founders' ambition, focus, and prescient timing led Goldmoney to become the global leader in precious metals custody and investment. By offering transparent access to precious metals, we have empowered tens of thousands of clients with the ability to safeguard their wealth in times of crisis and prosperity alike.

In 2015, Goldmoney® merged with BitGold, an innovative gold payments technology company founded by Roy Sebag and Joshua Crumb forming a new entity, Goldmoney Inc which was listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange in May 2015.
