Who uses Anglo Far-East?
AFE Clients are typically smart investors who are concerned about long term preservation of wealth. Often they are also sophisticated, affluent individuals, families, or small business owners or professionals. Our clients are often ahead of the curve when it comes to understanding the dangers of the current financial environment, and are looking for the top experts in the field to provide them service when it comes to the purchase, safekeeping, and later sale of their precious metals.
Trusted by Many
Anglo Far-East is the original private bullion custodian providing Allocated Good Delivery gold and silver bars. AFE was the first company that is not a bank to provide professional bullion market access to non institutional clients. AFE is a debt free, private company, that does not participate in the paper markets, and serves as a custodian of un-encumbered gold and silver bullion only. The advantage to you is that you are the legal owner of your gold or silver held with AFE, and there is no financial institution standing between yourself and your metal. This serves to insulate AFE clients assets from risks in the global financial system. AFE has served its many thousands of global clients for two decades of reliable, continuous operations.

You Are The True Owner of Your Precious Metals
Anglo Far-East is not the owner of you precious metals, you are. This is a matter of law, under bailment. Gold and silver held by AFE clients never goes onto AFE’s balance sheet, and is held in custody for the benefit of its true owner, the client. Each gold and silver “good delivery” bar bears a unique serial number, and all bars are segregated from other bars which are held for other institutions. All bars are sight verified by a top Swiss auditor (what we call a Bullion Auditor, Grant Thornton), and cross verified against AFE client accounts (by an Independent Trustee, which also acts as a custodian of records) to ensure that each and every ounce is 100% backed by physical gold or silver.
Strict Custodial Governance
In order for AFE to access the private vaulting system, the vault must receive instruction in writing not only from AFE, but also the Independent Trustee in what is called a dual signature system. In addition, actual physical access requires that a representative of Anglo Far-East must be accompanied by a representative of the Vault, as well as the third party bullion auditor (Grant Thornton). All agents sight verify each and every bar that goes into or comes out of our vaults against vault receipts and weight lists, and reports are furnished to both AFE and the Independent Trustee Company. These triply redundant sight reports are cross referenced against AFE’s client accounts by the Independent Trustee for accuracy, and to ensure that every ounce of your gold or silver is accounted for and cannot be sold or removed without the clients explicit instructions.
Convenience, Security, Liquidity
You can easily buy and sell bullion at your discretion via AFE’s encrypted online account management system, with access to global markets 24 hours a day via our institutional accounts with the largest refineries in the world. AFE buys and sells bullion at the ‘core’ of bullion markets, using LBMA certified refineries and by-passes the commodities markets and bullion banks. All metal is retained within the “Good Delivery” System which ensures gold and silver is acceptable on the global professional market, and we can therefore offer our clients excellent liquidity.
Generationally wealthy clients of AFE understand the value of storing a portion of their wealth outside the nation they reside in. During times of crisis, governments have been known to confiscate personal wealth and seal safe deposit boxes and bank vaults. AFE has chosen Switzerland as its primary vaulting location, due to hundreds of years of unbroken dedication to the respect of personal property and freedom. Our research indicates Switzerland is still today the safest jurisdiction in the world for storage of gold and silver bullion. It is important to note that under Swiss law, gold and silver custody fall under private property and not banking law, and are therefore under the jurisdiction of law at the Kanton level and not the federal level as the banks in Switzerland are. Gold and silver ownership is not regulated at the federal level in Switzerland. The vaults are located in Kloten, Switzerland, and are privately held, not owned by banks. All vaults are managed by accredited security firms and are insured to the full market value of all valuables within by a Lloyds of London insurance underwriter.
