Rush Gold collected both Best Investment Innovation and Most Innovative Person for Co-Founder and CEO Jodi Stanton in the Finder Innovation Awards 2020.
Rush Gold took the Best Investment Innovation title over fellow finalists eToro Australia and Stockspot.
The judges of the category stated, “The digitisation of this vitally important asset class is critically important, in a digital age where volatility is almost considered the norm nowadays.”
Entrants were evaluated on criteria including innovation, range of features, impact and testimonials.
This win comes at a time when the share market is at unprecedented highs, as new share traders pile in, while gold has outperformed shares in 1, 3, 5, 10 and 20 year time horizons.
Even Warren Buffett – who has never hidden his distaste for gold as an investment – has even jumped in given current market conditions with Berkshire Hathaway’s purchase of a new stake in top miner Barrick Gold.
Rush Gold has recently closed its first tranche of its Series A round and will soon close tranche two. The company will use funds raised to launch its debit card in December and is working on its new brand for the international market.
