Mr. Torgny PerssonCHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
Torgny is a native of Sweden and the founder of BullionStar — one of the world’s premier precious metals dealers. BullionStar is a fast-growing company that was founded in Singapore and has recently expanded into New Zealand and the United States.
Torgny has been passionate about finance and economics from a young age and went on to study economics as a university student. It was at university that Torgny realized that the economic models used by mainstream economists fail to factor monetary mechanics — a terrible flaw that explains much of the economic and financial dysfunction in the world today.
During the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, Torgny attempted to purchase precious metals to hedge against inflation and geopolitical instability but was disappointed by the lack of options in Sweden at that time. Fortunately, Torgny sensed a business opportunity and went on to establish Liberty Silver in 2008. Liberty Silver is now the largest bullion dealer in Sweden and Torgny still serves as the Chairman of the Board.
Torgny sensed another business opportunity in 2012 after Singapore’s government exempted investment precious metals from Goods and Services Tax (GST), which led him to establish BullionStar in the sophisticated and wealthy island nation of Singapore. BullionStar’s goal is to help modernize the bullion dealing industry by giving customers better accessibility and online control over their precious metals holdings.
