How to Securely Store Allocated Bullion

Vault storage keeps your investments secure

The gold and silver you purchase at Elemetal Vault is safely stored on your behalf until you choose to sell or accept delivery of your metal.

Allocated gold and silver is one of the most secure options to own precious metals. Elemetal Vault stores your metal securely with trusted providers like Brink's, where it is then allocated to your ownership. The instant you purchase the metal, it’s yours, and you are welcome to sell it even if the metal is in transit to the vault!


We Keep Your Metal Secure

Elemetal has partnered with global leaders in secure vault storage to bring our customers storage and transport from companies that have been trusted internationally for generations.

The Elemetal name is synonymous with quality precious metals, and our vault partners are synonymous with security and protection. By working together, we bring you the best of all worlds when it comes to investing in, trading, and storing gold and silver bullion.

What is Allocated Precious Metal?

Allocated precious metals like gold and silver are legally owned by an individual investor, not a bank.  The actual metals are stored in a secure vault facility and allocated to a private party.  As a result, allocated bullion is safe from insolvency, it is physical metal that is your legal property.

When you purchase gold and silver on the Elemetal Vault bullion exchange, you own the metal, it is yours to hold or sell, even as it’s in transit to the vault. Your metal belongs to you until you choose to sell it or settle your account using one of our versatile settlement options.

A point of clarity – while your gold and silver are allocated, they are not segregated. Frankly, we just don’t see the benefit to investors. Segregated storage takes time and, more importantly, costly labor that would increase your fees. An ounce of gold is an ounce of gold, and paying to let it sit on a separate shelf doesn’t improve its security or value. Allocating your investments without segregating them is one of the many ways we help you save on premiums. It’s the kind of advantage you get when you work with the Elemetal family of companies – a group of businesses that has been leading the precious metal industry for years.

Allocated storage is the preferred vaulting method of investors because of its many advantages, including:

  • Safety – Keeping a portion of your precious metal investments on-hand makes sense, yet there is merit in storing your larger holdings elsewhere. When your gold and silver is stored in a secure vault, it’s guarded by the best technology and infrastructure available.
  • Ease of Liquidation – If you decide to take delivery of your allocated bullion, or prefer to withdraw funds, we make it very simple! We’ll wire funds to the account on file, ship Elemetal bullion to you discreetly and securely, or you can shop at Provident Metals.
  • Insurance – When you choose to trade and store precious metals with Elemetal Vault, a global leader in secure vault storage, your bullion is kept insured. The cost to insure your bullion is included in the storage charge that you pay when you trade with us.
  • Long-Term Benefits – Many precious metals investors think in broader terms about the future, economic risks, and other unforeseen events. Allocated gold that is stored securely can always be obtained or liquidated quickly and easily should the need arise.
