We Provide the best wealth protection possible against the three systemic risks of Counterparty, Currency and Jurisdiction while providing excellent storage facilities, reliable testing, strong insurance and deep buy/sell liquidity for bullion.
Orders for storage or local delivery can be submitted 24/7 through our secure online platform. Our 736 tons bullion inventory is published online and transparently priced in near real-time.
We also provide physical liquidity when you are ready to sell and have some of the highest buyback rates in the industry.
All bullion traded, transferred and stored is from internationally recognized refiners or mints and >= 99.9% pure earning it the Singapore Investment Grade Precious Metal (IPM) classification which exempts it from taxation in Singapore.
Our principal sources, by tonnage:
Although crude counterfeits can be easily identified, our concern are secondary market advanced counterfeits involving thickly gold plated bars containing tungsten cores, or even ceramic alloy silver coins.
To provide authentication certainties, in 2012, we developed DUX, a testing methodology that reliably verifies bullion without damaging them.
DUX is an acronym that stands for Density, Ultrasound and X-ray Fluorescence testing. Each test measures and compares a different physical characteristic in such a way that even the best counterfeits would fail at least one of the three tests. In 2014 we added ECM as an alternative/complement to Ultrasound.
All DUX test result data is uploaded into a bullion product tolerance database, which records and evaluates the test data. Test results are then retrievable online and are either linked to specific bars (parcels) or, for non-storage testing, specialized tamper evident stickers are used to mark the tested sample.
Test Methods Overview:
The Safe House (TSH) is our vault and DUX testing facility in Singapore. TSH provided us with massive storage capabilities, eliminated middlemen and removed the inherent regulatory exposure that comes with storing at large Western headquartered vaulting companies.
