What Makes Our Fully Segregated Storage Different?
Your Precious Metals are completely segregated with your name and account number on your box. Transparency is the most important aspect of any storage program, which is why we offer clients the ability to ship in, drop-off, or pick up your Silver, Gold, Platinum or Palladium. Even sell your holdings and be paid within days.

4. What makes Miles Franklin’s storage program different?
Most precious metal storage facilities charge on a fluctuating rate. Miles Franklin charges by the ounce. The vaults are located in one of the safest countries in the world, in private facilities not tied in any way to the banking industry. Your metals can be accounted for in full segregation with your name and account number attached. Not all storage programs abroad have the same security, quality of employees, or solid reputations maintained by Miles Franklin and Brink’s Canada.
Clients may elect to arrange a pick up or drop off their own precious metals at the Brink’s vault locations. All paperwork must be submitted to Miles Franklin with a 3 business day advance notice. Once that is received, an appointment will be arranged and coordinated through Brink’s Canada.
5. Who audits my precious metals?
Miles Franklin Precious Metals Storage program utilizes the independent auditing services of Inspectorate America Corporation, a Bureau Veritas group company. More company details are found at the Inspectorate website: www.inspectorate.com
Annually, clients will receive a report of inspection signed by inspectorate’s U.S. Audits Manager – metals and minerals division. The statement will attest to the proper accounting and full segregation of the client’s goods at Brink’s.
6. Can I hire my own auditing company to audit my Metals?
At your own expense and Brink’s Canada’s approval, you may hire a known auditing firm to audit your precious metals stored at Brink’s Canada.
In addition to the third party audit performed by Inspectorate, Miles Franklin’s owners conducts an audit each year. We are 100% transparent, and feel that clients should have trust and confidence that their metals are accounted for on their terms.
