Safety considerations regarding GoldCore

According to GoldCore, the company operates a system of bailment and as such customers’ segregated & secure storage precious metal assets are held in custody in their names.

Reconciliation to the internal system versus the storage partners details is done on a weekly basis. Customers can view the contents of their storage account at any time by visiting the GoldCore website and reviewing the contents, bar numbers and location of their holdings in their GoldCore account. Furthermore clients can access the vaulting companies online records and view in realtime assets held on site by the vaulting company.

GoldCore works with an independent inspection company, Bureau Veritas, who audits the assets held in GoldCore’s secure storage locations. This is done annually and the results of this audit are shared with every customer that has assets in secure storage with GoldCore.

Clients have access to the vaulting company database of assets as managed by them. Clients are able to review the assets under their sub accounts based on their unique sub account
number. Their investments are insured through Lloyds of London affiliated insurers under the vaulting companies insurance policy. Annual insurance certificates in force are sent to every GoldCore storage customer with the annual audit.
