CEO and Co-Founder
Bill Rowell is an Australian entrepreneur (currently residing in Zurich Switzerland) with a history of business success and a passion to expand the lives of others. Raised on a farm, he learned both the value and the limits of “a hard day’s work for a hard day’s pay.” Seeking to enlarge his experience, he joined the police force and rose at a young age to the rank of Senior Detective in the Armed Robbery Squad. A chance meeting with a successful businessman inspired Bill to set out on the road of entrepreneurship.
Bill acquired his first hotel, and went on to build a successful business buying and turning around distressed hotels. Meeting gold expert Philip Judge brought him into the world of precious metals, and gave him an entirely new understanding of both global and personal finance. It was this experience that inspired him to help awaken others to the value of “real wealth” through the launch of Swiss Gold Global.
In 2008 he founded Joseph Wealth Systems a Swiss Company with the objective of putting Gold – “The Money of Kings” into the hands of Ordinary People. Today the Company is called Younique trading under the brand name of Swiss Gold Global and continuing to provide global Wealth Solutions for all people.
