Press release: Graham Tuckwell honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award

Apr 26, 2017

Fifteen years ago, Mr Tuckwell launched Gold Bullion Securities, the world’s first physical gold ETP on the Australian Stock Exchange, thereby making gold investment available to mainstream investors. For the first time, investors were able to buy gold that traded like a stock but tracked the price of the commodity.

Today ETF Securities offers one of the most innovative ranges of ETPs covering commodities, FX, equities and fundamental fixed income. Most recently, we launched the first investment products in Europe to provide exposure to the fast-growing global cyber security industry (US$116 million in flows as of 28th March 2017), and the increasingly popular and far-reaching robotics & automation industry (AuM US$321 million in flows as of 28th March 2017). These provide low cost access not found in broad based tech and robo funds, and are key growth sectors we’ve identified and responded to appropriately.

Within just over a decade, Graham Tuckwell has built a business from one person to over 100 people, with offices in London, Jersey, New York and Sydney. He has ensured the business has grown organically and positioned the company as one of the leading independent ETP providers. Today, Mr Tuckwell continues to take an active interest in the business, acting as a sounding board for the leadership and management teams, while aiding the overall group’s strategic development.

This Lifetime Achievement Award honours individuals for outstanding long-term contributions to ETF investor outcomes.
