After buying a gold bar (1kg, 10oz) or silver bar (100oz) we offer you an industry first by giving you the opportunity to reduce our private custodial storage fees. You achieve this discount if you perform a personal visit to the vault in order to inspect and audit your physical precious metals Holding.
This discount applies to the fees for both private investor and corporate entity Central Holdings.
Unfortunately there are many bad actors out there that are all too happy to take your money and then not actually buy & vault allocated physical bullion in return.
In 2007 Morgan Stanley settled a class-action lawsuit against them as they had been charging their clients storage and insurance fees for physical bullion that they said they had bought, but as it turns out – the bullion never really existed. For a better understanding about the case, take a look at Ted Butler's article.
So when you are buying a gold bar to be privately vaulted on a safe custody basis, how can GoldVu provide you with Peace of Mind that the physical bullion is really there and allocated?
It's rather easy to, wave audit certificates at you and say:
"See...it's all there - Trust us!"
However, there is always that question mark over the reality of 'Is it really all there?'
The above is the primary reason that we want you to personally visit the vaults to inspect your Central Holding, and in return we will give you a discount off our custodial storage fees.
By personally auditing your own precious metals the following benefits are achieved:
As far as I am aware:
No-one else in the entire global precious metals industry offers such an incentive!
...makes you wonder why not.
Furthermore, you'll have fun finding out what it's like to visit a high security vault.

Remember your Holding needs to be physically segregated before it's eligible for personal inspection and audit - as how are either of us to know which exact bars are yours?
When buying a gold bar - and silver & platinum – you should always have confidence that it’s really there. We want you to have that confidence about us and our custodial storage services.
