Where is my gold stored?
VAULTALP stores its client’s gold in the vaults of Malca-Amit in Geneva Freeport, Zurich Airport, New York Foreign Trade Zone, Hong Kong Airport, and Singapore Freeport. Malca-Amit is a professional vaulting company with a global network of offices, and offers ultra-secure, fully insured storage for the metals that VAULTALP is holding for its clients.
Are the gold assets held in my name?
VAULTALP is a Swiss company and is under the jurisdiction of Swiss law. All client assets held in storage will remain property of the client as per the storage contract and will not appear on the VAULTALP balance sheet in accordance with the Swiss laws on bailment defined in Article 472 of the Swiss Code of Obligations. Ultimately this means that you have full ownership of the assets, not VAULTALP. This offers absolute security for our clients.
Is my gold segregated, allocated, or unallocated?
All gold stored with VAULTALP is fully segregated. This means that each individual gold bar serial number is recorded and registered as belonging to your individual client account and is stored separately from other client’s gold. For reference many companies offer gold storage services using allocated gold, whereby the client has the right of ownership to a certain quantity of gold held by the company, but it may only exist as part of a bar that is co-owned by many other clients. As such this poses inherent risks when and if delivery should be required. Unallocated gold simply gives the client title to a certain quantity of gold held by the company but it may or may not exist in physical form, you simply become a creditor of the company. As such this poses significant counter-party risk.
Based on the above it is clear that segregated gold storage is the preeminent method of wealth preservation.
