The BullionStar saga began in 2009, when Torgny Persson and Joakim Andersson launched BullionStar.com for the purpose of displaying sophisticated precious metals charts and related information. Mr. Persson had already started a precious metals bullion dealer, Liberty Silver AB, in Sweden the previous year. Liberty Silver, where Mr. Torgny Persson still serves as Chairman of the Board, is now the largest bullion dealer in Sweden.
When the government of Singapore exempted investment precious metals from Goods and Services Tax (GST) in February 2012, Torgny and Joakim quickly seized upon the opportunity to launch BullionStar Pte Ltd in July of that year. Over the subsequent decade, BullionStar has grown dramatically to become Asia’s premier precious metals bullion dealer and has recently expanded into the United States and New Zealand.
