Gold-i opens an office in Australia

“Being in the UK, I experienced Gold-i’s strong culture and corporate values which I intend to emulate in the Australian office. These relate to going the extra mile for clients and pushing boundaries. As we grow the team in Australia, it’s important that we have the same ethos and fun working environment that has been so successful in Gold-i’s other offices” – Daniel Picone, Gold-i

Brokerage technology provider and trading platform integration development company Gold-i has opened an office in Australia, headed up by FinTech sales and technology specialist, Daniel Picone.

The new Sydney-based office is a significant development for Gold-i as it focuses on increased business opportunities amongst brokers in Australia and New Zealand as well as expanding its footprint across the Asia Pacific region.

Daniel Picone, who has spent the last seven years at Australian FinTech company, IRESS brings a wealth of experience to the role in terms of business development, account management and client support. He has spent four months on an intensive training programme at Gold-i’s UK headquarters in preparation for his new role.

As part of his remit, Daniel will focus on the sales of Gold-i’s core products, including its innovative multi-asset liquidity management platform Matrix; its business intelligence tools such as Visual Edge and its range of MT4 & MT5 plug-ins. Daniel will also be responsible for bringing more Liquidity Providers into the Matrix NETwork – an opportunity which enables them to sell liquidity to Gold-i’s clients worldwide who use its MT4 Bridge, MT5 Gateway and Matrix.

Gold-i CEO Tom Higgins with Daniel Picone

Tom Higgins, CEO, Gold-i comments, “Opening an office in Australia was the next logical step in our global growth plan. Not only are there a wealth of opportunities for us in Australia and New Zealand but having an office in Sydney also complements our Shanghai office, enhances our 24×7 service, and provides a strong foothold for us to expand into territories such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea and Malaysia.

“Daniel has the ideal experience to establish and grow Gold-i in Australia. He has a proven track record of working in partnership with financial services clients in the region. Whilst at IRESS he also moved to London to assist with the implementation of IRESS’ first financial markets’ clients in the UK, where he was successful in terms of sales and support as well as establishing the business in a new territory. I am looking forward to working with him as we drive the business forward – I will be in Australia from 19 to 29 November to discuss Gold-i’s offering with potential new clients.”

Daniel Picone adds, “Gold-i is an exciting, innovative, award-winning company, with market leading products in a rapidly evolving industry – so this is a great opportunity for me. My training at Gold-i was extremely thorough and I feel very knowledgeable about their core products and the skills required for high quality client support.

“Being in the UK, I experienced Gold-i’s strong culture and corporate values which I intend to emulate in the Australian office. These relate to going the extra mile for clients and pushing boundaries. As we grow the team in Australia, it’s important that we have the same ethos and fun working environment that has been so successful in Gold-i’s other offices” – Daniel Picone, Gold-i

Gold-i is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and is renowned worldwide for its innovative technology to help brokers to become more profitable and manage their risk more effectively.

Gold-i’s product portfolio includes a multi-asset liquidity management platform; business insights; risk management tools; and MT4 & MT5 plug-ins.
