Gold-i’s technology stands out from its peers. I’m particularly impressed by Gold-i Visual Edge – its capabilities in terms of risk management and reporting are critical for brokers in the current environment and I believe there’s a huge opportunity to increase sales. Tom has created an exceptional company, with great employee values and market leading products. It’s a company which I very much wanted to be part of.”
