About OrSuisse

OrSuisse AG was founded in Altdorf in 2012 and has many years’ experience in the high-security storage of precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium. Our unique business idea was conceived to compensate for the inherent lack of fungibility and liquidity offered by traditional storage methods. This is our storage concept outside and completely independent of the banking system.

An OrSuisse warehouse receipt allows precious metals to be transported, and enables owners to endorse transfers and use their holdings as collateral assets. Negotiable warehouse receipts can be treated just like many other securities, which means precious metals can be sold without any need to physically relocate the goods.

Authorisation permits from the cantons of Uri and Zurich entitle OrSuisse to issue securities on deposited precious metals in accordance with the Swiss Code of Obligations.

Your precious metals also remain in the OrSuisse vaults when a warehouse receipt is transferred (by endorsement) and thus will stay safely stored in Switzerland. So, for the very first time, our business model offers clients from all over the world a secure means of storing assets which can be flexibly traded, while at the same time those holdings retain maximum liquidity.

– Hans Maurer, President OrSuisse AG

Our vaults – insurance and inventory control

While stored in our vaults, your valuables are fully insured. OrSuisse warehouse stocks are subject to twice-yearly checks to monitor and confirm that the quantities of precious metals stored precisely correspond to the warehouse receipts which have been issued. These regular audits are carried out by the renowned Swiss auditing company BDO.

In addition, the internal control system (ICS) operated by OrSuisse is certified according to the International Standard for Assurance Engagements (ISAE) No. 3402. This demonstrates that security controls and company compliance are our highest priority, and guarantees optimal protection of your valuables.

Simple administration

You can easily store, retrieve and relocate your precious metals with us, and you will receive a transferable warehouse receipt. With OrSuisse, there is no need to set up a registered account or arrange online access. This guarantees you maximum discretion and data privacy.
