Egon von Greyerz profile

Egon von Greyerz

Egon von Greyerz is the founder and managing partner of Matterhorn Asset Management AG. 

Born with dual Swiss/Swedish citizenship, Egon’s education was mainly in Sweden.

Egon von Greyerz began his professional life in Geneva, Switzerland, as a banker and thereafter spent 17 years as the Finance Director and Executive Vice-Chairman of Dixons Group Plc. During that time, Dixons expanded from a small photographic retailer to a FTSE 100 company and the largest consumer electronics retailer in the UK.

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. This led to the creation of MAM as an asset management company based on wealth preservation principles.

MAM is now the world’s leading company for direct investor ownership of physical gold and silver outside the banking system. Our vaults include the biggest and safest gold vault in the world, located in the Swiss Alps. Clients include High Net Worth Individuals, Family Offices, Pension Funds, Investment Funds and Trusts in over 80 countries.

Ever critical of the absurd missteps of the world’s economic and financial systems, Egon von Greyerz makes regular media appearances and speaks at investment conferences around the world to tout the virtues of owning physical gold and silver in the context of severe systemic risks. He also publishes regular articles about the same, which you can find here. Below is a list of interviews and publications written by or featuring Egon von Greyerz.
