Add unallocated ounces to your portfolio
Unallocated ounces represent the cheapest route to physical precious metal exposure. Provided your unallocated holding is of sufficient size, we can convert the holding into physical bullion at a later date (please ask for costs, terms and conditions) for storage in Guernsey or Switzerland, or for you to collect from Guernsey.
About Our Assets
Actually traded in grammes, 999.9 fine gold, 999 fine silver, 999.5 fine platinum and 999.5 fine palladium is available to trade on account with our service provider, and one of the world's leading Swiss refineries, Metalor.
In 1852 Martin de Pury & Cie founded the "Preliminary Rolling Factory" at Le Locle, which specialized in the melting of gold and the manufacture of watch cases, establishing the foundations of the future Metalor industrial group.
Developing its production activities first at a site in Neuchâtel, and then in other countries throughout the world, Metalor was owned by Société de Banque Suisse until 1998, when its majority ownership was taken over by a group of industrial investors.
Metalor is a substantial business that employs over 1,600 people worldwide and has a turnover exceeding one billion Swiss Francs (from 2013 annual report: please find further information by clicking here).

Unallocated Metal Account Risk Warning Notice
When you buy unallocated precious metals through our nominee you will become a creditor of Metalor - they will owe you the precious metal that you have paid for. However, you must be aware that you will not own the asset whilst it remains in Metalor's Metal Account. Metalor remains the owner of the actual precious metal and is free to use your money, whilst also adding your unallocated metal holding to its own reserves.
The underlying metal might be physically stored in an audited vault - but this is not guaranteed.
Furthermore, in the extremely unlikely event that Metalor became insolvent, then you might, as a creditor, receive back only, at best, a proportionate share of whatever was raised from the sale of Metalor's assets.
