GoldMoney’s Maike Ahlstrom a 100% exam success
GoldMoney Business Analyst Maike Ahlstrom has become a member of FGI Training’s Elite club, after she was awarded 100% in her recent Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) exams.
Maike was working as a Relationship Manager for GoldMoney in Jersey, but recently moved to London to work in the IT office: ‘It was a big change for me so I wanted to do a course which would give me a good understanding of IT service management best practice so I could ensure that what we are doing in IT is fully aligned with the goals of the rest of the business. I was very surprised when they told me I’d got 100% in the exam and I was being given an award.’
The course Maike undertook covers service strategy, including how to design, develop and implement service management ensuring the business is in a position to handle the costs and risks associated with the services it delivers. Effectiveness and efficiency are two of the key issues in the delivery and support of IT services.
Simon Hamblin, Chief Information officer, GoldMoney said the team are very proud of Maike’s achievement: ‘It is great to see that Maike’s hard work and achievement have been recognised in this way. Her commitment to ensuring that our IT team are on target to deliver an effective solution to the whole business has been admirable. Our IT systems are critical for us at GoldMoney, as an online precious metals trading platform. We have also had a particularly busy time with the launch of GoldMoney’s sister company Netagio, the new Bitcoin cold storage service; and Maike was an integral part of the launch team.’
Maike has been with GoldMoney for three and a half years, she now lives in Richmond, London.

Historically gold has been an excellent way to preserve purchasing power over long periods of time. For example, today it takes almost the same amount of gold to buy a barrel of crude oil as it did 60 years ago which is in stark contrast to the price of oil in terms of national currencies such as the US dollar.
GoldMoney is regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission and complies with Jersey’s anti-money laundering laws and regulations.
