GoldCore’s Three Golden Rules for Precious Metal Storage
Diligently Protecting Your Investments
GoldCore has an unwavering commitment to three vitally important rules for storing precious metals. We believe that your investments must be:
Segregated & Allocated
Safest Storage Facilities
Segregated & Allocated
Providing Complete Control Over Your Precious Metals
GoldCore ensures that all customers’ holdings are both segregated and allocated.
Segregated holdings are kept separately from all other clients’ metals in an individual space marked by their own account number. This means that they are kept alone within a high security designated storage vault and will never be mixed or co-mingled with other clients metal holdings
Allocated means that the precious metal in your storage account always remains the exact metal that you originally place into that storage account. In preference to an unallocated storage account, your metal is uniquely identified as yours and never pooled with any other client holdings.
The benefit of this is that as you own the metal outright, in a segregated and allocated manner, its value is thus independent of the financial performance of any service provider. This provides an added level of safety and security for your investments.
Direct & Outright Legal Ownership
Our provision of fully segregated and allocated holdings means that you have direct and outright ownership of your precious metals with the convenience of quick and easy access. We are just the custodians of your gold or silver, providing safekeeping services. This mitigates counterparty risk; meaning your ownership of, or access to, your gold and silver bullion will not be affected in the unlikely event of a business interruption.
Direct ownership enables you to sell your bullion back to any number of international dealers. This benefits you by reducing dependence on any one single provider or an online digital bullion platform where gold transactions can only be made within that specific medium.
Kept in the Safest Storage Facilities

In line with our mission to protect and grow your wealth, we facilitate the ownership of precious metals in the safest ways possible – insured delivery and the most secure vaults internationally.

What Does This Mean For GoldCore’s Clients?
Safeguarding Your Gold Investments
Storage charges are calculated and accrued daily based on a daily valuation of your bullion holdings, and then billed three months in arrears at the start of February, May, August and November.
A daily billing calculation approach prevents large movements in the gold price affecting the quarterly storage fee, which could occur if the fee was calculated based on just one day’s price.
When you buy bullion coins and bars with GoldCore, the initial purchase price does not include a storage fee. You are charged storage from the date your bullion assets are stocked into your storage account until the end of that storage cycle.
Currently, the storage periods are:
- November to January
- February to April
- May to July
- August to October.
If you buy mid cycle you will be charged from that date up to the end of that storage period and then subsequently every 3 months until you sell or move your bullion out of our storage program.
This enables you to pay your storage fees in arrears, avoiding an upfront cost.
