At Regal Assets, we take storage very seriously. Whether you purchased physical bullion within or outside a retirement account, you have several options when it comes to storage and we are here to guide you every step of the way.

Through strategic partnerships with the world’s top institutional vault providers, we are one of the rare companies that offer our customers fully-insured and segregated precious metal storage WORLDWIDE, at some of the lowest costs in the industry.

With our popular segregated storage option:

  • Your metals are held solely under your name (or a joint account, trust, LLC or other option you choose). Call us today to discuss the best options depending on your investment objectives.
  • The coins and bars you buy are always stored separately, and independently audited and verified. No pooling or shared ownership with other investors.
  • Your account is fully insured for the total value of the account. Compare that to safe deposit boxes provided by commercial banks, which are usually not insured by the FDIC. This leaves investors subject to losses from theft, fire, and other causes, with very little recourse.
  • All of our clients, regardless of account size, receive periodic custody certificates documenting their holdings and account inventory levels.
  • Get your metals delivered to your home anytime anywhere in the world through a secure phone call or online request. You can also sell back your metals directly from storage.
  • Pay only a low flat rate per year! Unlike many competitors who charge you a percentage of your investment (which gets more and more expensive as your account grows in value), we charge a FLAT rate for the life of your account with us.

Other Benefits of our Storage Options

We make it as easy as one two three for our clients to send their metals to storage. No separate accounts to sign up for, no complex forms to fill out, secure storage with Regal Assets is as simple as shopping for delivery.

Getting Set Up is as Easy as One Two Three

After purchasing your metals, you’ll have the option to get the metals delivered directly to any eligible vault location. We’ll create an account for you automatically at your chosen depository.
It’s that easy. Your order will be quickly shipped to the vault you chose, including all the usual tracking and verification you’d expect. Once in your vault account, you can take delivery any time you need it, or transfer them to a different vault location, or even go pick up your metals yourself in person!

The Incomparable Security of Segregated Storage

Segregated Vault storage with a private, fully insured third-party custodian is hands down the safest option for gold and silver bullion storage. With segregated vaulting, your precious metals are held as individual coins or bars in clearly marked and separated space. The original metals purchased are the exact same sold upon liquidation or physical delivery.

Privately Insured

All segregated vault storage options are third-party insured for the total value of account.
Compare that to safe deposit boxes provided by commercial banks. They are not insured by the FDIC from losses as bank deposits are, nor do most provide any sort of affordable insurance option. This leaves investors subject to losses from theft, fire, and other causes, with little recourse.

Reduced Theft Risk

While we strongly advocate having some physical silver and gold close at hand in case of a crisis, just like keeping cash at home versus in a bank, there are limits on how much bullion is safe to store at home. Passed a certain amount, you should seek out a professional storage facility/partner, and your local bank’s safety box will likely not cut it for reasons we’ll cover later in this article. Take for example this one example report that was widely circulated on the web of a man losing $750,000 worth of precious metals to thieves who raided his home: (original link).

Worldwide Storage Options

For IRA investments, we offer North American and Singapore storage options. For those purchasing metals OUTSIDE a retirement account, we offer an even wider range of options. You can basically choose to store your metals anywhere in the world through our partner Brink’s, the world leader in maximum security storage. You can even split your ownership across two or several vaults located in different jurisdictions which. You are basically in full control of where your metals are located at all times.

We’ve pre-arranged vault options around the globe, so you can ship your purchased metals directly to your choice of one or more vault locations with just a click.

 

Popular Locations include Salt Lake City, USA; Toronto, Canada; Singapore; Dubai and Hong Kong. Over 100 other vaults located in a wide range of countries are also available.
No matter where you choose to store your assets, you’ll enjoy the same service and low FLAT storage rates.

Flexible International Delivery Options

We make it easy to move your metals from one vault to another. We can ship your metals to dozens of different countries, making it easy and efficient for investors to take physical delivery of their vault storage holdings from any part of the globe.

Transparent, and FLAT Pricing Fee

Unlike many competitors who charge a percent of your investment, which grows as your account grows in value, we charge a FLAT rate of $250 per year regardless of your account’s size. You get private, segregated vault storage, with full-time surveillance, armed guards, and all the controls provided by the industry’s most recognized security providers for one flat yearly fee. If you’ve been shopping for vault storage for a while, chances are you’ve hard a hard time getting a straight answer when it comes to pricing. At Regal Assets, we don’t do business that way. We charge one flat annual flat rate which stays the same regardless of how much you invest.

We put sample fee calculations for varying account sizes in this table to give you an idea of the total cost of storing your metals with us.

Physical Bullion Storage is Cheaper than Gold & Silver ETF Fees

This might come to a surprise to many ETF investors out there, but gold & silver storage is actually much cheaper than ETF management fees. On this table, we’ll compare the expensive management fees of some of the most popular gold and silver exchange traded funds (ETFs) to the price of storing physical gold and silver bullion in fully insured, segregated vaults. You’ll notice what a value physical storage provides in comparison to gold ETF investing. Plus, when choosing segregated vault storage, you won’t be subject to the common problems associated with most precious metals ETFs, such as the inability to take possession of metals, issues accurately tracking the price when markets move quickly, or complex bank regulations. Counterparty risk is high when investing in any form of “paper gold”. With physical gold storage, you own your gold and no one can take it from you.

Gold Storage to ETF Comparison
Example: A $500,000 account, e.g. 500 oz. of gold bullion at $1,000.00 spot price, versus ETF equivalents.

No Scaled or Complex Fractional Pricing

We are one of the rare companies out there that charge a low FLAT yearly rate, regardless of your account’s value. Also, our storage services are transparently priced with no hidden fees, unlike many other “allocated” or “digital” vault storage competitors that use a complicated fractional gold ounce or silver gram schemes to keep charging you more year over year.

Is Storage Right for You?

At the end of the day, every investor has different objectives and requirements when it comes to their precious metal investment. Always speak to a specialist to help guide you on the best options. The golden rule is to ensure that your invested bullion is owned outright and unencumbered. To achieve this:
  • Do not hold metals on the books of a company you do not control or in the title of anyone but yourself.
  • Avoid metals that are or can be “hypothecated” by the trustee, i.e. lent out to cover anyone’s debts but your own.
  • Be sure your metals will be there when you need them. Avoid promissory notes and certificates that aren’t third-party insured, or schemes that require the trustee to purchase metals at market when you request delivery.

With Regal Assets' segregated storage, accounts are titled in your name, or in the name of an entity you control, assuring direct ownership. Secure, efficient physical delivery is just a few mouse clicks away -- because the same metals you put into storage are the ones that are sent back to you when needed. The entire process is all under the supervision of the world’s top vault providers and third party auditors. And every ounce is fully insured.Give us a call today to discuss storage options, or fill out a free gold kit request form to learn more about our company, our products and storage options.
