At OrSuisse you will receive warehouse receipts for all your deposited precious metals. In accordance with the Swiss Code of Obligations, these documents are treated as securities, which means the owner of a warehouse receipt is entitled to claim ownership and take possession of the deposited item. Furthermore, these negotiable warehouse receipts enable full transferability of deposited goods via a simple endorsement.
OrSuisse warehouse receipts thus guarantee your precious metal holdings can become fungible and liquid. Such negotiable warehouse receipts can then be used in a variety of ways as a security – for example as collateral to guarantee loans. You can also choose to sell your warehouse receipts direct to authorised dealers at current precious metal prices.
Your precious metals, complete with full-risk insurance cover, are stored outside of the banking system in the safest vaults available in Switzerland. In principle, warehouse receipts can be issued for all kinds of precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium, and in any denominations. Silver and other white precious metals can be stored VAT-free in a bonded warehouse, and also sold and transferred upon request.
