Gold and silver are scarce physical assets that appreciate over time and when stored as insured private property in a safe jurisdiction, is a systemic wealth insurance that is independent of the financial system.
Being both a defensive safe haven and an inflation hedge, gold and silver perform particularly well during stagflations when economic recessions and high inflation make most other investments unattractive.
We offer three storage options:
If you own sizable (~100 troy oz or more) amounts of physical gold in a commercial vault in Europe, North America or Australia, it might be possible for us to swap your vaulted gold for Singapore Gold S.T.A.R. Grams.
Such swaps involve procuring new gold in Singapore and will usually incur a 2% fee. Contact us at [email protected] for details.
You can transfer your gold, silver, platinum or palladium bars or coins to us by physically delivering your bullion to us in Singapore or we can arrange for a secured shipping solution. See here for terms and conditions.
The bullion will be transparently tested upon arrival and accepted as S.T.A.R. parcels. The bullion can then be easily sold or used to obtain Secured P2P loans.
The Safe House can provision a safe deposit box via a one-time remote deposit. Such a service would include full liability protection of the stored bullion and we would send a deposit receipt, CCTV deposit recording and box keys by mail to your address. See here for more details.
Once sealed, a box cannot be opened without the presence of the client or authorized representative to witness the seal cutting.
We merely act as agents to store, insure, and provide liquidity for the client’s property which is never held on our balance sheet. Since clients are physical property owners, not creditors, clients cannot be defaulted upon, nor can client assets be encumbered by us. [More about ownership]
Stored bullion is insured by our comprehensive liability protection that covers loss from third party thefts, inside jobs, and even mysterious disappearance, the later usually not being offered in the industry. [More on insurance and security]
Our non-destructive testing, performed by our onsite testing labs, ensures that all bullion stored under S.T.A.R. are of the metal purity specified. Should a stored parcel be of subpar quality, we will replace the metal at our expense. [More about testing]
Via our vertical integration and by dispensing with subcontractors we ensure that the entire storage chain is only subject to local Singaporean laws. We provide certainty that only Singapore law, not US or European law, applies to your property stored with us. [More on exclusive Singapore jurisdiction]

We can act as an escrow and custodian to enable our clients to securely lend funds to each other using their bullion as collateral. This enables lenders to obtain a very safe interest return while borrowers can access liquidity without selling their bullion easily and quickly. Since 2015 we have enabled over 12,681 such loans totalling over $478 million at an average 3.98% annual interest rate. [More about Secured P2P Loans]
