Segregated and allocated storage of gold and Silver and other precious metals
We provide individual, segregated and allocated storage of gold, silver and other precious metals, in contrast to many banks, which often only offer unallocated or allocated 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 this case, the precious metal “owned” by the clients constitutes 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.
Gold, silver, platinum, palladium of other valuables stored with us are explicitly segregated (separated) from precious metals belonging to other clients or to our own stocks. Gold and silver stored with us is allocated in the name of our clients, which means that serial bar numbers of gold bars or silver bars etc. and the seal numbers of boxes in which the gold, silver or other precious metals stored with us are noted and mentioned in the client’s storage confirmation and in client inventory reports. Our clients’ precious metals do not form a part of our own assets or the assets of anybody else other than our specific client.
The advantages for our clients are clear: no counterparty risk, no insolvency risk exposure.
Our storage facilities for gold, silver or other precious metals
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 storages 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, protecting stored gold, silver, platinum, palladium, diamonds, fine art paintings or documents perfectly. To access our vault rooms, the six-eyes principle applies; only three people together do 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, as long as the gold of lower purity or silver, platinum and palladium 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 Custom Department.
