Mr. Torgny PerssonCHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
As the founder of BullionStar, Torgny is an avid advocate of precious metals as money. Having been passionate about the monetary system since young age, Torgny choose to study Economics at University but realised that economic models failed to consider monetary mechanics.
In the midst of the global financial crisis, Torgny intended to purchase Investment Precious Metals in his native country of Sweden as long term protection against inflation and geopolitical instability. He discovered that options were lacking and established the Swedish bullion dealer Liberty Silver in 2008 where he still serves as the Chairman of the Board.
Following the Singaporean government's exemption of Investment Precious Metals from GST in 2012, Torgny established BullionStar. BullionStar seeks to introduce modern technology into the age-old industry of precious metals combining online customer control with accessibility.
