Security of the storage company:
We store the precious metals of our customers in Canada in a high security vault which is
managed and owned by Brink's, one of the best known and largest security companies
in the world. Canada is one of the most secure places in the world and we think it is
one of the best places in the world to store precious metals. On the other side is
Brink's located all over the world and this gives us the possibility to transport
precious metals to many other countries. With this possibility we offer a highly
flexible service with absolute security.
We looked all over the world to find the most secure location for our customers
precious metals and concluded that the best place for precious metals is in a
Brink's vault in Canada.
Perry Brink founded Brink's in 1859. Today Brink's has about 130,000 employees and is
located in over 150 countries. The high security trucks of Brink's are well known
all over the world.
Every high security vault owned by Brink's is guarded 24/7 by armed staff. These
vaults look from the outside like ordinary industrial buildings. You have to look
a little bit closer to see all the cameras and the small bullet proof windows.
The doors are made from heavy steel and the garage doors are reinforced. The
property is fenced in with a strong fence with barbwire on top. Every door is under
remote control and the security door system allows only one door to be open.
The precious metals of our customers are located inside one of these fortresses,
inside a special special vault room. Only Brink's employees are allowed to go
into this vault room and it must be always two people to enter this room. The
precious metals of our customers are stored in this room in sealed industrial
boxes. Every one of our customers has his own box with only his own precious
metals in it. Every box is sealed with numbered seals. The numbers of the seals
are stored in a database and will be checked every time the box is opened. Every
move inside this vault room is documented.
The picture on the left shows the sealed boxes which are used inside the vault. On the
left and the right side you can see the numbered seals.
The picture on the right side shows an open box with precious metals in it.
Please compare the security we offer with the security of other companies. The
following topics are the most important ones:
- Storage in a high security vault outside the banking sector
- Every customer should have his own sealed box with only his own precious metals in it
- No regulatory registration like in a bonded warehouse in Switzerland
- The precious metals should always be accessible
- The possibility to transort the precious metals into another vault in another country
- The custodian (Atlantic Canada Metals Inc.) and the storage company
(Brink's Canada) should be different companies
- The custodian (Atlantic Canada Metals Inc.) should have,
without permission of the customer, no access to the precious metals of the customer
