Bill Dalzell | Finance and Compliance Director
William Dalzell is a Certified General Accountant with a B.Sc. in Forestry (British Columbia) who has leveraged his dual qualifications to gain broad and in-depth experience in the alternative investments sector of the global financial markets, as well as management, human resources, production and accounting in the education, wood products and steel industries.
Bill has done extensive research and technical analysis both in the foreign currency and derivatives markets and spoken at a number of international seminars on trading and derivatives. His passion is trading the forex market and teaching others the skills and art of trading. He has been a successful personal forex trader for close to 20 years and mentored a number of students, several of whom have gone on to become successful full-time traders.
Bill is a Licensed Securities Dealer in Vanuatu and is presently CFO and Head of Compliance for Alternative Investment Specialists Ltd, the Vanuatu-based fund management company that manages the award-winning FTM fund and a number of successful forex trading funds patronized by the Bank’s customers.
While the licence granted to Vantu Bank is an international banking licence that prohibits the bank from doing business with Vanuatu residents and its Board of directors is globally dispersed, it is equally important to have an adequate support and management presence in Vanuatu.
