Beacon Global Group was founded upon the initial meeting of Randy Landsman and Robert Rigby-Hall in 2012 while these two financial-minded experts were living and working abroad. Disappointed with the inability to find trusted advisers to help them with their finances; and the fact that fewer financial institutions were willing to deal with the Americans after the enactment of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) in 2010, Randy and Robert took their diverse experiences in finances, human resources and general management to form a company that would help financial services companies around the world better serve American expatriates, (like themselves) with smart, sound, and stable financial assistance while living and working abroad.
Necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention and Beacon Global Group (BGG) was founded. Building on the success of Beacon Financial in the U.S. Robert & Randy made a multi-million dollar investment to build the business internationally to support the needs of Americans moving around the world by providing one comprehensive and seamless service wherever they go. With the help of a team based in the U.S. under the leadership of Joby Gruber, these three leaders offer the perfect mix of experience and backgrounds to help build and sustain BGG for the future:
