Protecting your gold and silver bullion against natural disasters

One of the most important considerations when seeking a reputable gold and silver bullion dealer is whether or not they can provide sophisticated storage facilities.

Many investors may be tempted to hide their precious metal assets in the home, particularly if they have fairly small amounts or have confidence in their security measures.

However, thieves are not the only risk factor in Australia – natural disasters could wipe out your savings pot overnight if particularly devastating extreme weather struck the property.

Various parts of the country are prone to floods, typhoons, bush fires and other disasters. In fact, a recent report suggested Australia had the most financially damaging weather events in the Asia-Pacific region last year.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies revealed the nation suffered $2.7 billion of economic losses in 2013 due to ex-Cyclone Oswald and two major fires in Tasmania and NSW.

Keeping precious metals safe

Investing in secure gold and silver storage is the best way to ensure precious metals and other valuables remain protected from incidents such as natural disasters.

Dedicated private vaulting facilities will keep your assets segregated from other account holders, allowing you to view, handle and take delivery of your gold and silver whenever necessary.

Sophisticated security measures provide peace of mind that investments remain safe from thieves, while robust safe deposit boxes and bullion vaults offer damage protection.

In the unlikely event that a large-scale disaster resulted in the loss of your assets, there is also comprehensive insurance cover available.

This is not often the case when storing precious metals at home, with gold and silver rarely included in home insurance policies – especially in large quantities.
