Gold-i is a renowned fintech within the FX and CFD industry that specializes in multi-asset liquidity management, advanced risk management tools, and business intelligence software.
The firm has recently realigned its sales operations as a result of a comprehensive business evaluation to optimize the quality of its liquidity management and digital asset capabilities.
To that end, Gold-i promoted its director of operations, Mark Alvarez-Buylla, to take on an expanded role as chief commercial officer (CCO). Gold-i said Mark played a key role in the development of its core products, and thus expects his elevation to be instrumental in accelerating momentum through 2022 and beyond. In his new role, he will lead Gold-i’s business and commercial strategy, with responsibility for the sales, marketing and finance functions.
Gold-i then promoted Joy Li as Head of APAC, where she will have overall responsibility for managing the team in the fintech’s Shanghai office and increasingly focus on the Crypto Switch solution, particularly in Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, and Korea.
The Gold-i Bridge, Matrix and MAM are the firm’s signature products in Asia Pacific, but demand for trading digital assets continues to rise, which is leading Joy Li to spearhead a campaign to grow Gold-i’s client base of crypto fund managers in the region, managing their entire technology infrastructure including access to crypto market makers and clearing.
