GoldCore Understanding

We believe in the importance of helping people to protect and grow their wealth with the provision of the safest forms of precious metals ownership — physical bullion coins and bars.

We educate our community about the modern monetary and financial system, why diversification is important, and how a precious metals diversification remains an important way to protect and grow wealth in today’s uncertain world.

The value of precious metals is defined by the international financial markets and driven by the underlying fundamentals of supply and demand coupled with global macroeconomic fundamentals. At GoldCore, we understand that nobody can predict the future movement of any market. Dispelling the myths about precious metal investing is the central tenet upon which we have built our business and reputation. This allows us to continually deliver on our clients’ expectations and it is why our clients return.

GoldCore Choice

When investing in precious metals, the options are manifold. At GoldCore we differentiate between these options based on our client’s desire for proximity to their precious metal. Whether our clients are taking personal possession of their precious metal or opting to own allocated gold in a vault in Switzerland, each method has implications from the perspective of counterparty risk, jurisdiction risk, title, cost, liquidity and price. Our product suite has something to suit all investors.

GoldCore Innovation

As client needs differ, so too does the ideal method of investing in precious metals. GoldCore strive to provide the optimum solution to meet our client’s needs. GoldCore are dedicated to being an industry leader in the provision of precious metal investment solutions and a pioneer of product innovation. Meeting the needs of our clients ranges from manufacturing usage and commodity investment to protecting an investment portfolio from macroeconomic, geopolitical, systemic, and monetary risks.

The GoldCore Approach

Our corporate philosophy acknowledges that a business can only be built by delivering on the promises that it makes. GoldCore delivers what we say, when we say it, in the manner in which we say. At GoldCore we pride ourselves on being asset diversification specialists. We understand that the bedrock of portfolio performance lies firmly in the decisions made during the asset allocation process. Our Bullion Services team provides access to a suite of precious metal products for institutional, corporate and retail investors alike.

As an Irish company, GoldCore welcomes the opportunity to put our skills and our independent approach to help protect and grow the wealth of our Irish clients.

Is GoldCore Regulated?

The provision of precious metals and related services do not require regulation. GoldCore was regulated from 2005 until July 2018, operating a successful wealth management business in the Republic of Ireland. This business was sold in 2015. While maintaining the highest operational standards, GoldCore decided to deregulate of its own volition in July 2018. GoldCore felt, given the sale of our wealth management business in 2015, that regulation was no longer needed and arguably represented a degree of risk that was not warranted.

Is GoldCore financially stable?

Yes. We are a private limited company and as such our audited accounts are available for anyone to view by searching for us on the company register in the Republic of Ireland ( www.cro.ie ). Our company number is 377252. We are happy to provide any interested party with the contact details of our auditors, bank and legal representatives.

Where are your offices?

Our head office is situated in the centre of Dublin on Harcourt Road. We also have an office at No.1 Cornhill in the City of London. We use the London office for pre-arranged client meetings and media events.

Meet The GoldCore Team

Stephen Flood

CEO, Director

I have worked here at GoldCore for nearly 10 years, and I love it. Officially my job is CEO, unofficially my job is to make sure everything runs smoothly so we make good on our promises to our clients; to provide the very best service, advice and know-how.

Day-to-day I work with select clients who ask for me by name, strategic partners on new ways to win business, and I also fill in wherever I am needed – no job is too small. I am really proud of GoldCore’s team of client orientated professionals – they are tops and our public client reviews really bear this out. My professional background started with my degree in Business from Portobello Business College and then I held a variety of financial and trading posts in New York, most recently from Goldman Sachs where I worked as a Sales Trader in Equity Derivatives.

I am married to the beautiful Paula and we have three young boys and yes, they are a handful! We live in the Dublin Mountains in a rural setting and we own two very productive chickens and a lazy cat. I love mountain walking and biking, current affairs, history, everything IT and a really good movie. I love getting away to far flung places and I am planning an epic trip with my boys across South America, (my wife has not quite committed to this idea, but I am working on her!)
