Secure Storage

Secure storage in our unique bullion depository

The most secure and transparent way of managing your investment in physical bullion

In the former "Hollandsche Bank Unie" vaults, we offer bullion storage services for private customers, business users and institutional investors. All metals are 100% allocated and registered to the owner’s name. The bullion storage in Rotterdam is managed completely by Tov Hazel.

The premium quality of the vaults (in accordance with the strictest European safety standards) with segregated compartments and high-quality internal security provides for a unique secure location, especially for the investors market in the Netherlands. Moreover, our depository has a direct connection to the incident control room of Rotterdam Police Headquarters situated only a few dozen metres away from the vault’s location.

For the storage of bullion, Tov Hazel has been granted a license by the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM).

The vaults for the storage of VAT-free bullion are managed by Loomis International in Zürich (CH). To this end, Tov Hazel Storage maintains a special relationship with Loomis. With this highly secure storage facility as a basis, professional traders and investors can anticipate the dynamics of the international precious metals market in the best possible way.

For storage exceeding €250,000, we advise you to contact one of our consultants directly. Under € 50,000 we recommend a safe-deposit box.
