Why store precious metals like Gold and Silver in Switzerland?
Switzerland is one of the politically and economically most stable countries in the world. It values the protection of property. Ever since the second World War Switzerland has occupied a very important role in the gold business:
- As a major center of physical bullion dealings.
- Due to major gold investment safekeeping for natural persons and legal entitites.
- Due to a number of gold refiners (Argor-Heraeus, PAMP, Metalor, Valcambi).
- Due to historic ties with major gold producers.
Today, Switzerland remains an important place for physical precious metals with the major advantage that its geographical location places it at the center of Europe. A bank-independent safety deposit box outside of the EU can also be used to store documents, data, crypto hardware wallets and other valuables along with precious metals.
A large selection of safes and vaults
In our privately managed vault room, we offer deposit boxes and safes. You can choose between different sizes, from small boxes to large safes. If you want to deposit your keys, we can recommend a lawyer or a notary near to the storage location for safekeeping. Safes (Cat. 5) come equipped with either a code key lock. The provision of special, individual safes without any weight limitation is also possible.
Security for your valuables
The vault systems and processes we have put in place meet the highest security requirements and are continuously adapted to attain the latest standards. Full insurance coverage of the contents of your safe deposit box is possible. We work together with renowned partners such as Lloyds, London and a Swiss insurance. No client data is forwarded to the insurance. The coverage for the client is secured anonymously via the box number.
Swiss Gold Safe does not retain keys for any deposit box. For security reasons, the client in question receives both available keys and can deposit these with a lawyer or notary, on request. Access to our safes is, therefore, only available to the customers of the safe deposit boxes themselves or their authorised persons. Our trained and armed security staff will be on hand to assist you in this.
What advantages does a bank-independent offshore safe deposit box have?
Compared to a bank’s safe deposit box, Swiss Gold Safe, as a private provider, offers its customers undeniable benefits. This includes the fact that by opting for the discreet storage of your valuables in a bank-independent facility, there are no legal reporting requirements to fulfil. Moreover, we pay close attention to construction and technical safety standards of our security systems, so that your belongings are fully safeguarded with us.
Access to the contents of your safe deposit box is possible by appointment during office hours (Mo-Fr: 8am–12pm and 1pm–5:30pm) – a 24/7 on-demand service is also offered, subject to a surcharge.
For the purchase of precious metals, we recommend our partner company, Echtgeld Ltd.
