Storage

A critical decision for  investors when buying investment gold bars is where you want to store your investment. The compact size, durability and portability of the 1 oz gold bar allows for easy storage options. However, 1 oz gold bars are valuable and need to be securely stored, and with the rising risk of burglaries you should not store too many valuables at home.

There are two main options available, either:

  • Take delivery of your coins at your address ensuring that you have adequate facilities and insurance in place or;

  • Store you investment gold coins with a secure third party.

Marketsforu offer clients fully insured secure storage facilities in many international locations such as Switzerland, UK, USA, Australia and Asia.
