Fully Allocated, Segregated silver or gold storage

If you want reassurance that your metals are being stored in secure, professional vaults; our storage service is the ideal option.

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.

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.

Your 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 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.

Delivery charge applies.

We store our client’s silver bars at Network Securities in Guernsey. Gold coins and Pension Gold are stored in Loomis International in the UK.

About Network Securities

Founded in 2008, Network Securities is a privately owned, independent securities company, situated in the centre of St. Peter Port in the Channel Island of Guernsey. Initially specialising in storing bullion, it has since diversified into storing fine wines, jewellery and art. Unlike many storage providers, assets aren’t pooled; each client’s asset is allocated to them under their individual client code, and then stored in a specific location within one of the vaults.

About Loomis International

Loomis has a long history of handling valuable goods and cash, spanning 160 years since the California Gold Rush. Loomis International Services acquired Via Mat International in March 2015 to enhance its international presence and now offers services in 110 countries. Specialising in gold storage and other high value commodities, the facility fulfils the strictest security requirements.

Insured delivery

If you wish to receive your gold and silver directly, we offer a secure, insured delivery service. Your delivery charge will be calculated within your shopping cart, depending on the quantity and type of metal ordered.

We use Royal Mail Signed For on orders below £500 and Royal Mail Special Delivery on larger orders for gold. UPS are our courier for silver deliveries. Either way, orders are sent direct to your door, so there’s nothing to ‘advertise’ the contents of the package.

We can send your order the day after funds clear, if the items are in stock.

We can provide a tracking number, so you can monitor the progress of your delivery

We provide full insurance cover for your order
