Los van de gemanipuleerde markt door topbanken ervaar ik de onafhankelijkheid van BullionVault en de volledige eigenaarschap van bullion daarbij volledig bevredigend. Een groot voordeel daarbij is dat BullionVault voor de betrokken partijen aan de totstandkoming van voordeliger of op zijn minst gelijkwaardige koop/verkoop overeenkomsten deel neemt.
Everything functions just as described on BullionVault's homepage. You register your details, including verification of your bank account status, and then you can buy gold or silver and have it stored in Zurich, London, Singapore or New York (only Gold available in New York). You are the outright owner of your metals, i.e. you are not a creditor of BullionVault, which is a huge advantage if you are buying precious metals as a financial insurance. The platform for buying or selling is straightforward, the metal prices are close to the spot price and the storage costs and dealing fees are competitive. Everything is priced transparently. The value of the gold BullionVault stores on behalf it's clients is near billion pounds sterling (GBP). That's because they provide a first class service.
Facil manejo, gran seguridad, liquided en 24 horas, lingotes a buen recaudo y asegurados; que mas se puede pedir?
Bullionvault is great as it exists today, however improvement in a couple of areas will make Bullionvault an excellent offering.
I would hope to see Bullionvault or the designated bank provide some consideration or interest for the cash funds in our accounts. I wonder if BV is making money from the funds deposited in the their bank.
Further, I would feel more comfortable if Bullionvault is not involved in the trading of the metals - i.e. BV should not act as a buyer or seller - rather, BV should focus on increasing the number of participants in the trading. My perception is that the number of participants are rather thin.
If you are like me, the last thing you are going to do is trust a website with thousands of pounds of your own money. That's how I felt when I came across this site. My predisposition and any reservations I had about trusting Bullionvault were quickly allayed. There are measures in place that instil confidence and once you start trading there are tools and help that are indispensable.
If you want to trade in precious metals, I could not recommend a better site.
It gets five stars but I would give it more if I could!
I do not fully trust the gold and silver practices in general, but after a thorough investigation I found BullionVault offers an extremely safe way to buy, store and sell these metals. Through daily audits, where pseudonyms may be used, you can be sure that the metal you purchase is actually there. Also, you can buy and store precious metals in different countries, allowing you to diversify the risk of governmental control / confiscation.
Moreover, should your account be hacked, then no metal or currency can be redeemed to someone other than you, AND you will receive a log in notice by e-mail, so you will know if and when someone else accessed your account. They can, however, buy and sell your gold to possibly themselves (via another account) - Though I'm sure BullionVault will do it's best to undo the damage, especially if you act fast.
Apart from these issues, its website is quite consumer-friendly, the charts are clear and the fees are very reasonable. I am a very happy consumer, and I recommend this company to everyone interested in owning gold or silver.
This is a great way to begin stockpiling gold bars for yourself and feel like a James Bond villain. Well, I say bars, I mean grams (in my case). Whether you've got £5 to spend or £1million, you can begin buying gold in 4 different vaults. You can buy and sell with a couple of clicks and everything is documented and emailed to you. I've now set up a regular saver scheme to buy gold each month. Fingers crossed the price of gold goes up in a few years!
Been a member for about three years. Had a few problems to begin with. Mainly due to security matters, which is ultimately a good thing. Find them very helpful if any problems arise. Hope they can maintain this level of service as they grow (which I'm sure they will).
They presently hold about 30% of my savings in bullion and cash. If they paid interest on the cash they hold in trust for me, I would probably transfer consideraby more.
It is very simple to buy and sell gold and silver in BullionVault. In my view even an older or less experienced computer user would have no difficulty with it. The 'help' feature is well set out and easy to understand. Another thing, the costs, including storage and insurance, are impressively low. On reflection after writing this, I stand by my recommendation given above.
Been a member for years, very satisfied .Great prices and can even negeotiate.
Safety in storage, low rates. No reporting because it's not a financial institution.
When the dollar crashes at least I will still have something left.
BE VERY CAREFUL when getting your account verified. Once done, it takes an act
of God to change. My US bank stopped accepting wire transfers from individuals
and even though I had three commercial accounts, Bullion vault would not
accept them. Went through hell and with threats of closing my accounts (15)
the bank decieded to ok it.
Give them a try, you won't regret it
I am not a wealthy person but I have enough left over at the end of each month to wonder what to do with it. I like the idea of diversification and BullionVault alllows me to put 10% of my savings 'elsewhere', i.e. not cash, not equities, bonds or property. This is my personal ratio and BullionVault makes this possible.
Black Swans and Fat Tails aside, everyone should consider the benefits of diversification (and even internationalisation) of their savings/wealth; and these guys can help you to do that.
Started to use BullionVault after reading the FAQ and seeing all my concerns addressed directly. Who owns the gold, for example? There, answered simply and to my liking. What are the risks? There. If you don't have concerns but are interested then start with the FAQ/Help. It's a sort of free training on what to look for, in this type of service.
I have been using the bullionvault services since 2006, and I have never found a fault. Instead, when I have had some difficulties, thei spared no effort to help me. I opened a second deposit line, and suggested my son to open its own.
I consider Bullionvault the best partner I've met in my life: and I'm 83.
This operation has provided an online gold trading exchange that can be accessed by all on equal terms. I was originally wary about transferring money to Bullionvault , but 5 years later I have finally closed/emptied my account and can say I was a happy customer from start to finish. There has never been any delay in withdrawing account balances. There where never any unexpected charges. Well done Bullionvault. Please make a forex version next.
I have now been a customer at BullionVault for more that a year.
At first I was afraid of hidden fees or other irregularities, as is often seen with other financial institutions. But I never saw anything like that at BullionVault: No fees they did not announce before i started trading, every trade adds up, and I never had to ask for any correction as everything was always exactly as it should be.
When I got my second account at BullionVault (for tax purposes) there were a few problems, but their customer service were quick to resolve these. The first problem was that I was given a few grams of silver as a promotion, and I saw this was less than the minimum per-month storage fee for silver. But when I asked about it I was told there was no storage fee for promotions, and I never got the minimum storage fee for silver. The second problem was that the new account was linked to my initial account with their referral program, probably because the new account was created from the same browser that I used for my first account. But when I told them this could be a problem for me (it could be seen as tax evasion here), they were quick to remove the referral link for me.
So the few problems I ever had with BullionVault was that they were too good to me, and they were quick to correct when I told them of the problem.
I prefer to own gold and silver in my own physical possession. With BullionVault it is still owned by me, but it is not in my possession. So I follow their financial statements closely, as there is a risk of a small haircut for small investors like me in case they go bankrupt, because less than whole good delivery bars have to be sent to the owners. Fortunately BullionVault looks a lot more solid than most other British companies, and I think their current risk of going bankrupt is minimal.
This is, in my opinion, simply the best company to deal in gold with. Their margins are reasonable, their reputation speaks for itself, and deals take only a few minutes, whether buying or selling.
I have had a very positive experience with Bullion Vault - found the site easy to use, transactions processed quickly and they kept me informed along the way. Also easy to use on mobile devices. Good service all round
I think this is the cheapest and easiest way to buy silver or gold bullion and you can have it stored in one of many vaults abroad. Smooth website and easy access from mobile phones and tablets (including android).
I've been customer for several years and perform many other (financial) activities online.
Bullionvault is one of the best in speed, clarity and user-friendlyness at a competative rate.
One satisfied customer.
It´s no fault of Bullion Vault that gold and silver prices are in the gutter just now - but the trading speed is such that you can take immediate action if you need you need your cash back. My ´strategy´, if that is the word, is to take the long view, and hope that the experts are right when they say bullion values are going to rise sharply - but when ?
I have bought more gold today, thus reducing the average price paid for my holding to below 1000 pounds an ounce. Now it´s time to wait and see.
I've been very happy with Bullionvault since I started using them 5 years ago. Deals get done as requested, commissions are reasonable, as are storage costs, and they are very quick to respond to queries and suggestions for improvement.
I can't elaborate on the above !
BV offers a great solution for buying. Low charges, apparently secure and overall I have been very pleased with this. However, I have been less impressed with its service to sellers, given the closed nature of the system. In particular, I was very disappointed to see almost zero liquidity during the market turmoil earlier in the year. Total market depth seemed to be hundreds of grammes, not kilos, with spreads extending to several thousand pounds per kg. While clearly an exceptional day, one would expect BV as operators of the platform to provide better liquidity to the open market. This was not a problem on spread betting sites such as IG which are also closed systems. I understand that BV Is quite new and therefore likely to have some teething issues but I am quite disappointed not to have seen an explanation or announcement of a change forthcoming in the subsequent months.
Discovered this site via a Google search after feeling uncomfortable with what other sites were offering. If you want a decent and fair deal with an easy to use idiotproof website I'd recommend them.
Very easy to set up an account and transfer funds.
Quick responses to email queries, all of which could have been answered if I'd looked closer at the FAQ which answers virtually everything one needs to know.
I have been following the writings of Chris Martenson at PeakProsperity.com for some time. I reviewed the options for a small buyer to enter the physical precious metal marketplace and chose BullionVault. Signup is easy, auditing seems transparent and the office staff member who took my telephone call was courteous and efficient. I can recommend this service.
