Advantages for foreign customers

The storage of your valuables at a bank-independent facility at Swiss Gold Safe provides you with many advantages. Firstly, as our customer, you do not have to maintain or open a bank account in Switzerland, something that saves you from paying for expensive account management fees, of course. Secondly, our well-trained security staff will accompany you on your visits, so that you will receive all-round support. We also offer you an appointment service. As the only customer with access to the vault during your visit, you will be able to enjoy maximum privacy and discretion at such times.

From an international perspective, Switzerland is one of the most economically and politically stable countries. What’s more, it has a long tradition of protecting property rights. Therefore, the contents of your safe deposit box need not be declared to any government agencies. Thanks to its optimal geographical location in the heart of Europe, Switzerland also offers you a unique advantage in terms of accessibility. Our high-security facilities in the Gotthard area as well as in the canton of Zurich offer plenty of convenience thanks to their accessible positions.
