Gold-i, a trading systems integration specialist for the financial services industry, has reinforced its commitment to its Asian operations, culminating in with the opening of a new office in Australia. The notable milestone for the firm comes in tandem with the appointment of Daniel Picone to head the new Sydney branch which will focus on signing new partners in Australia and New Zealand.
In his newly created role, Daniel will oversee the expansion and bolstering of Gold-i’s core products for clients across the Asia Pacific region. Additionally, his mandate will emphasize the growth of the group’s sales, including the multi-asset liquidity management platform Matrix; its business intelligence tools such as Visual Edge and its range of MT4 & MT5 plug-ins.
To further solidify his new role in the region, Picone spent four months on a training program at Gold-i’s UK headquarters.
The new office in Sydney and allocation of additional resources and talent to the region also follows the opening of a Shanghai office back in 2016. In doing so, the group has attracted a rapidly growing client base in China and APAC, with a healthy demand fueling its agenda.

Crypto offering on focus
Picone joins Gold-i with many years of experience in the financial services industry, having most recently worked with the Australian FinTech company IRESSin.
Daniel will also be responsible for promoting Gold-i’s Crypto Switch, which acts as a bridge between various technologies used in Forex and cryptocurrency industries by allowing brokers access to a number of global cryptocurrency exchanges and liquidity providers. The product has allowed Gold-i to introduce a large-scale cryptocurrency offering through the MT4 and MT5 brokers.
According to Tom Higgins, CEO of Gold-i: “Opening an office in Australia was the next logical step in our global growth plan. Not only are there a wealth of opportunities for us in Australia and New Zealand but having an office in Sydney also complements our Shanghai office, enhances our 24×7 service, and provides a strong foothold for us to expand into territories such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea and Malaysia.”
“Daniel has the ideal experience to establish and grow Gold-i in Australia. He has a proven track record of working in partnership with financial services clients in the region. I am looking forward to working with him as we drive the business forward – I will be in Australia from 19 to 29 November to discuss Gold-i’s offering with potential new clients,” added Higgins in an accompanying statement.
