Hug recommends that if you are the holder of precious metals and are concerned about privacy or concerned about the prospects of government involvement that you look into the option of storing these commodities at Kitco’s Canadian Allocated storage facilities, which offer boxes and a secure location at Kitco in Canada.

Some American clients fear a possibility of government confiscation, liquidity and have brought to the table questions as to whether to store physical metal in your country which may be subjected to geographical diversification and perhaps may even be sought after because of domestic economic security concerns.

Geographical diversification may be the direction for many owners of precious metals and may question a 3rd party or even “WHY CANADA?

Canada has no general subpoena right in place. Canada’s economy is strong and they have banned the ownership if precious metals. Kitco has under their belt one hundred and fifty (150) years of experience and offer competitive pricing, as well name recognition in the market place for being the largest metals suppliers, who have the ability to ship anywhere in the world. Kitco has been in business since 1977 and they are 100% Canadian owned.

The United States now has a trillion dollar deficit and some speculators also say have a hidden fifteen (15%) un-employment rate and as we know the US is in a state of turmoil.

With that being said, Kitco’s geographical diversification makes Canada a very positive option who’s country has “No” General subpoena rights in place.

Kitco will allow many fabulous options for their storage customers like the ability to log into their account on a daily basis while offering geographical diversification.  They now offer secure storage ability and in many cases there is a no shipping charge as with Kitco’s Canadian Allocated storage program.

If you are nervous about the prospect of storing precious metals in your domestic jurisdiction, keep in mind that Kitco’s storage facility has no requirements to report to United States under general subpoena. You may want to look into this program as it may be the perfect fit for you.
