Egon von Greyerz

During that time, Dixons expanded from a small photographic retailer to a FTSE 100 company and the largest consumer electronics retailer in the UK.
EARLY LIFE AND EDUCATION
During the 1990s, Egon 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.
EGON’S LEGACY AND ACTIVITY
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.

Matt began his finance career as a transactional attorney before launching his first hedge fund during the NASDAQ bubble of 1999-2001.
Thereafter, he began investing his own and other HNW family funds into alternative investment vehicles while operating as a General Counsel, CIO and later Managing Director of a single and multi-family office. Matthew worked closely as well with Morgan Stanley’s hedge fund platform in building a multi-strat/multi-manager fund to better manage risk in a market backdrop of extreme central bank intervention/support. The conviction that precious metals provides the most reliable and longer-term protection against potential systemic risk led Matt to join MAM.

Based out of Zurich and Singapore, Jan previously worked at Credit Suisse Asset Management as a senior portfolio manager for Emerging Markets with a premium mandate of advising global, High-Net-Worth clients.
