    Safe, simple and secure precious metals investing

    Precious metals are recognised as an essential element of a diversified investment portfolio, helping investors protect their wealth against fluctuations in the value of other asset classes. In the face of market turbulence, they have proven to increase in value as alternative assets diminish.

    To ensure investors are well supported in managing their asset portfolios, we have established a network of international distributors. As a Perth Mint Depository authorised distributor, you will benefit from the ability to offer our world class storage facilities along with the choice of three of our strongest Depository storage solutions:

From your Omnibus account, you can operate your own series of sub accounts for your clients, all managed directly by you. The Perth Mint will have no knowledge of these accounts or the identity of the account holders, providing another level of privacy for your clients. 

    This option gives you the ability to offer metal directly to your clients with little or no reference to The Perth Mint. However, if you choose to promote the Mint, you can do so by advising that the metal is secured in our world class storage facilities. It is important to note that your clients would have no direct claim on The Perth Mint and that you will need to comply with any applicable laws in your jurisdiction.

    Your Omnibus Account can be set up as either an online or offline account to suit your particular business model. The Perth Mint will review the collective metal holdings of your account to determine the fee structure.
