Jan Skoyles Appointed Research Executive At GoldCore
As a recognized thought leader in the gold and fintech space, Jan will augment GoldCore’s research capabilities and will focus on the UK economy and gold’s role as an important diversification, payment and savings vehicle.
As one of the world’s largest and fastest growing gold bullion delivery and storage providers, GoldCore continues to focus on educating its large client and subscriber base, social media following and the wider public of the importance of owning physical gold for diversification and financial insurance purposes.
Jan Skoyles became interested in precious metals and financial technology when she wrote her dissertation on the use of gold and silver in modern monetary systems. Following graduation in 2011, she joined UK gold investment platform, The Real Asset Co, as a co-founder and Head of Research. Her work and views on both gold and fintech have been featured on a range of media including the BBC, Reuters, RT, Wall Street Journal, Al Arabiya, Forbes and The Telegraph, as well as her own online investment show, Get Real.
Jan was made CEO of The Real Asset Company in June 2014 before stepping down to work with London’s fintech start-ups including the first London listed blockchain company, Coinsilium Group in 2015. She is frequently asked to speak at events on the future uses of blockchain technology in the investment, savings and payments space. In 2016, Jan moved to the UAE where she is a partner at Barlings Consulting, an investment and financial technology consultancy.
“Jan’s knowledge of the precious metal market and her understanding of money, past and present, will help GoldCore in furthering our mission to become one of the largest gold delivery and storage providers in the world,” said Mark O’Byrne, Research Director.
According to O’Byrne, “gold continues to be an important diversification and wealth preservation tool. It is a hedging instrument and safe haven asset and will protect and grow wealth in the coming years.”
“I have known Mark and the GoldCore team pretty much since I first started out in 2011 and I have always admired their research and approach to offering precious metals investment,”Jan Skoyles said.
Jan continued “with gold and silver having an excellent year and GoldCore’s fantastic plans and reputation I can’t think of a better time to be re-entering the precious metal space and am delighted that I am able to do so with Mark and the team. I am looking forward to building upon the high-level research and commentary that GoldCore clients and communities currently enjoy, as well as bringing fresh insights into this period of technological and financial change.”
