Physical Gold was formed by two partners, Daniel Fisher (CEO) and Jonathan C. Rose (President).
Daniel Fisher, CeFA, is a member of the Institute of Financial Planning and has worked in the financial industry for nearly 20 years. He spent much of that time working within the new issue fixed income business at a top tier US bank. In his role he traded a large book of fixed income securities, raised capital for some of the largest government, financial, and corporate institutions in the world, and advised the leading global institutional investors.
“My market experience has provided a great insight into the world of investment at a very high level, providing knowledge of the risks and rewards of the various asset classes. I came to realise that even the most sophisticated institutional investors are now seeking simplicity, safety, transparency, and preservation with their investment strategy. These are the key values we’ve carried over into this company, and investing in physical gold meets these principles.”
After seeing first hand how the average person in the US is now investing some of their money and pension in gold, Mr Fisher believed it was time that UK residents were made aware of this well kept secret, and benefited from its great tax advantages.
“The average person in the UK 10 years ago would not have known which type of mortgage they had if you asked them. Now everyone knows about the different categories of home loan available and they are being more proactive in selecting the correct one for their needs. We now want to spread this pro-activity to people’s investments and pensions, and enlighten investors that they don’t have to sit and watch their property, stocks, and pension fall in value. They can now do something about it, and invest in physical gold.”
Jonathan C. Rose, RFC, is the CEO and Managing Member of Apex Gold Fund. He is also the founding President and CEO of Capital Gold Group, Inc. (2003, USA), a leading national precious metals firm. In 2008, Mr. Rose co-founded Physical Gold Ltd., based in London, which is a member of the British Numismatic Trade Association, the leading association for gold dealers in the U.K., the National Association for Pension Funds; and the Institute of Financial Planning. Mr. Rose is also the founding President and CEO of LoanOn, Inc., (July, 2012, USA) and holds a California lending license. He has also been recognized and licensed as a Fund Manager and Independent Asset Manager by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
While living in Europe, Mr. Rose was employed by AAA rated banks such as Prudential Bache Securities, Morgan Stanley, Fimat Metals – a division of Societe Generale, Merrill Lynch, and other global firms on the London Metal Exchange (LME). His accomplished background in the base metals markets, precious metals markets, and the foreign exchange market (FOREX), has made him a prominent leader and sought after commentator on economic news and its impact on precious metals for over a decade.
In 1997, Mr. Rose relocated to the United States and established his reputation as an expert in the precious metals markets. In 2003, he founded Capital Gold Group, Inc., an industry leader offering physical precious metals for diversification of long-term capital. Mr. Rose also developed The Gold Show, a nationally syndicated radio program on news/talk radio featuring weekly market reports and in-depth analysis of current international economic trends and their impact on precious metals.
In 2013, Capital Gold Group was named “Precious Metals Advisory Firm of the Year – USA” by Acquisition International M&A Awards. Capital Gold Group was named one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States by Inc Magazine in 2011, and its website was named an International Business Awards Distinguished Honoree in July of 2010.
