Allocated gold and silver
All our stored metals are fully allocated. This means they're not leveraged, so what you buy is what's being stored for you. Beware of ETFs where there can be less gold than you actually bought. This is simply because the ETF you buy is not necessarily linked to a particular gold holding. Companies will often sell you certificates that are representative of an investment pool. Due to this, ETFs carry counterparty risk
. This simply means that in the event of an economic meltdown, the company may not be able to fulfil its commitments to you.
Fully segregated account
Your metals are completely ring-fenced and you have your own section in the vault. This protects your metals from our balance sheet, the vaults assets, and every other client's holding. We do not store your assets in an investment pool. Our paperwork clearly indicates that you are the legal owner of your gold. As a result, there is no counterparty risk associated with buying from us. Infact, we do get many questions from investors about the best way to purchase and store gold
. Our advice to them is that segregated and secure is the best option and the only way to go.
InsuredYour gold and silver is fully insured on your behalf, providing you with protection & peace of mind.
The vaults we use have multiple layers of security and specialise in storing and protecting high-value commodities. Metals are professionally handled, ensuring your asset retains its integrity.We only use LBMA-approved vaults. Therefore, you can rest assured that it's a much safer option than storing your gold at your residence. While the service is chargeable, in many ways, it's wiser to store your gold professionally
is a valuable asset, and many people purchase their gold with a long investment horizon. However, they don't think about storage. Not only can your residence become a target for thieves, but there are also other factors involved in storing your gold. The storage environment
should be free of moisture, clean, and fit for purpose. So, if you want to store your gold in your residence, you might have to end up installing a special safe. Needless to say, our secure storage service ticks all these boxes and ensures that your valuable asset remains in mint condition in the years to come.
Legal ownershipWe provide you with a Storage Agreement, detailing your legal ownership. This can be used to access your metals at any point in the future and is proof of your entitlement to the metals.
