Founder and Chairman
Born with dual Swiss/Swedish citizenship, Egon's education was mainly in Sweden.

Egon von Greyerz began his professional life in Geneva as a banker and thereafter spent 17 years as the Finance Director and Executive Vice-Chairman of Dixons Group Plc.

During the 1990s, Egon von Greyerz became actively involved with financial investment activities including mergers and acquisitions and asset allocation consultancy for private family funds.

Our vaults include the biggest and safest gold vault in the world, located in the Swiss Alps.
