Precious Metals Custody Storage

High-security

Segregated, allocated and fully insured
for your maximum security and peace of mind.

Silver standard bar

We provide individual, segregated and allocated custody storage of gold, silver and other precious metals, in contrast to many banks and other storage services, which often only offer unsegregated and/or unallocated  storage, especially for larger quantities.

With unallocated storage, clients possess only the rights on any unspecified specific gold, silver or other precious metals owned by the bank, or other storage facilities, but they do not legally own specific bullions, bars or coins.

In such a case, precious metals “owned” by clients constitute a part of the bank’s or storage facility’s own assets, unless it is stored individually in a segregated form and in the name of the client.

Acting as our clients’ custodians

Gold, silver, platinum, palladium or other valuables stored with us in custody are explicitly segregated (separated) from precious metals belonging to other clients or to our own stocks.

Gold and silver etc. stored with us is allocated to our clients’ name and stored in custody for our clients. That means that serial bar numbers of gold bars or silver bars etc. and the seal numbers of storage boxes in which gold, silver or other precious metals are stored, are noted and listed in the client’s storage confirmation and in client inventory reports (stock reports). Our clients’ precious metals do not form a part of our own assets and are not assets of anybody else. They legally belong solely to our specific clients.

The advantages for our clients are clear: Client assets are fully shielded from any unlikely claims of third parties against us.

All precious metals within our storage facilities in Liechtenstein, whether they belong to our clients or to us, are fully insured, including coverage of embezzlement and terrorism. 

We provide our clients with an Evidence of Insurance certificate (EOI), issued by our insurer. The EOI is issued in the name of the client and also confirms the value insured.

In the event of a future sale, our clients have detailed evidence of their assets, which covers all precious metal transactions effected.

Our storage facilities for gold, silver or other precious metals

One of the safest and most sophisticated
storages for precious metals in Europe

Our high-tech and high-security storage facilities in Liechtenstein for physical gold and silver or other precious metals are designed and built by Swiss specialists for high-security storage and equipped with latest technologies.

Our vault rooms are especially designed for the storage of gold and silver and other precious metals. Their security grade is Grade X (Grade 10), one of the highest security grades available.

All our vault rooms are equipped with full climate control and fire extinguishing systems, almost 200 high-tech cameras, motion detectors, impact vibration protectors, for the absolute protection of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, diamonds, or art.

To access our vault rooms, the six-eyes principle applies; only three people together have access to the vault rooms.

Own bonded warehouse

We maintain our own bonded warehouse within our storage facilities in Liechtenstein.

In the EU, the EEA (European Economic Area) and in many other countries physical gold of a purity of 999,9 is considered as being equal to cash money. Therefore, no VAT is applied on physical gold with a purity of 999,9 in those countries.

However, gold with a lower purity and white precious metals (silver, platinum and palladium) are subject to VAT. Storing gold of lower purity and silver, platinum and palladium in a bonded warehouse is a good choice to avoid VAT liability, as long as the precious metals are not imported into a country.

Some of our vault rooms where gold of lower purity and silver, platinum and palladium are stored are declared and assigned as bonded warehouse. In this case, access is only possible together with an officer from the Customs Department.

Storing wealth outside the banking system

Your protection from banking risks,
currency and political risks

Globalisation brought people together on a global scale. But it also led to global vulnerability for crises.

Long-lasting recessions, defaulting banks and even countries, weakening currencies, political uncertainty and other risks affect the global economy.

A rapidly growing number of high and ultra-high net-worth individuals as well as members of the middle class prefer to store at least a part of their wealth outside the banking system. They benefit from the inherent value of precious metals safely stored and protected from the above mentioned risks. Asset diversification and risk hedging are of substantial importance when protecting wealth.

And not only wealthy individuals rely on the inherent value of gold. Central Banks bought a total of 640 metric tonnes of gold bars in 2018 alone, which is the highest annual purchase since 1971, when gold was delinked from currencies (in 1971, the U.S. Nixon administration terminated the convertibility of U.S. dollars to gold, creating a fiat currency regime).

As our company and the storage facilities in Liechtenstein are independent of banks, we are not subject to the increasing restrictions within the banking sector, concerning the purchase and issue of precious metals.
