The World Gold Council, the market development organisation for the gold industry, has appointed Kevin Feldman as managing director – investment worldwide.

Previously, he held positions at Barclays Global Investors, Vanguard and Charles Schwab. 
Feldman brings significant experience in the global ETF and US mutual funds markets, as well as marketing, product strategy and general management experience to the World Gold Council. 
Feldman says: “I am delighted to be joining the World Gold Council and leading our investment activities around the world at such an important time for gold. I look forward to developing new initiatives to expand access to gold investment through innovative products and partnerships while extending the organisation’s leadership in helping investors to understand the benefits of gold to their portfolio strategies.”
World Gold Council chief executive Aram Shishmanian says: “Kevin joins us with a clear directive to enhance gold’s stature and role within the global financial markets. His experience in developing commercial partnerships and marketing financial products, coupled with his knowledge of the dynamic role that gold plays as a unique asset, will be a major asset to the organisation.”
Feldman joined the World Gold Council on 20 May 2013.
Following a review of the World Gold Council’s investment sector strategy, Jason Toussaint, managing director – investment now reports to Feldman.
