I have searched for reputable, trustworthy, safe & secure gold and silver bullion companies that I would feel comfortable storing and/or buying precious metals with and put my mind at ease. I wanted to find bullion companies that met a high standard of excellence and are NOT associated with the banking industry!
There may be many reasons why people use bullion custodial companies to purchase and hold their precious metals on their behalf. I thought it might helpful for some of my readers if I briefly discussed my reasons for doing so. This may or may not make sense for everyone as no one strategy ever does.
My reasons for using trusted bullion companies:
- Ultimate Protection Against – Government confiscation and local theft.
- Convenience - Easy access to my metals from just about anywhere in the world.
- Liquidity - Very quick and easy to liquidate or buy gold & silver in a heart beat.
- Favorable Pricing – Buy gold & silver at daily market prices.
- Phycial- Allocated storage of real metals owned only by me. No paper promises to pay.
- No Banks- No risky or corrupt banks holding my wealth or involved in anyway.
- No ETFs- Which could also be hurting the price of gold and silver.
- Peace of Mind – Knowing my precious metals are strategically held with some of the best in the industry. Fully insured, audited, and allocated.
- Delivery- Peace of mind knowing I can have my metals delivered to my door if necessary.
Here’s a list of trusted gold & silver bullion storage companies I currently recommend and feel very comfortable buying gold silver online with. These companies have also been recommended by industry veterans (or are managed by them) so they hold a pretty high standard compared to some of the other bullion companies out there.
If you are looking to buy or store physical gold & silver safely ( perhaps safer than in your own possession ) and securely, then these are the best companies I have found so far.
This list will be updated as I discover additional bullion custodial companies that meet my requirements.
