Séamus Fahy studied business at the University of Limerick. Upon graduating, Séamus decided to pursue a career in the oil and gas sector starting with a trading position with Irish National Petroleum Corp (The State Oil Company). Séamus then joined ConocoPhillips operating out of the London office where he was senior Gasoline trader dealing regularly with diverse international clients. Upon leaving ConocoPhillips, Séamus decided to pursue entrepreneurial ventures in domestic and foreign markets focusing on opportunities in both commodities and real estate markets. His investment and activity in commodities provided the opportune background to participate in the growing gemstones market. In 2008, he set up Voltaire Diamonds, a leading provider of engagement rings and diamond rings. In 2013 along with his partner David Walsh he spotted an opportunity for Safe Deposit Boxes in Dublin and set up Merrion Vaults. With an extensive trading background together with owning Ireland’s only purpose built Safe Deposit Box vault, selling bullion was a natural fit and Merrion Gold was born.
