Silver Bullion’s The Safe House Vault Increases Insurance to S$1 Billion Amid Surging Precious Metals Demand

For Immediate Release
22 March 2024


Singapore, 22 March 2024 - Silver Bullion ( ) announces a significant increase in insurance coverage for its vault, The Safe House. The vault’s insurance coverage has been upped from S$800 million to a milestone of S$1 billion. This increase comes in response to the escalating value and quantities of precious metals stored within The Safe House’s vaults in Singapore.

The rise in demand for precious metals as a hedge against currency devaluation and the inflationary environment of recent years has significantly contributed to the value of stored assets within The Safe House’s vaults. In the past year, investors globally have sought secure avenues, such as those provided by Silver Bullion, to protect their wealth, leading to a substantial increase in the volume of stored precious metals.

Moreover, the surge in gold prices, reaching historic highs in recent months, has further bolstered the overall value of assets entrusted to The Safe House's protection. Raising the insurance coverage now also better prepares the company for the increased demand in storage volume that comes with precious metal bull markets.

John Tay, Director of The Safe House, said, "Bullion stored within The Safe House’s vaults are always fully insured. We prioritize the safety and security of our clients' assets above all else and continuously increase insurance coverage as the assets under storage grow. Our comprehensive all-risk insurance coverage, which includes protection against third-party theft, fire, terrorism and sabotage, employee infidelity, and mysterious disappearance, underscores our dedication to providing security and peace of mind to our customers."

Vergel Villasoto, Director of Silver Bullion, said, "From our experience of past gold and silver bull markets, investor interest in bullion rise in tandem as prices trend upwards toward the peak. Our decision to raise the insured amount, even beyond the current stored precious metal value, is also driven by our anticipation of a resumption of the next leg in the bull market in gold and silver. While gold has reached historic highs, silver has yet to follow suit. However, historical data suggests that silver tends to lag behind gold in the initial phases of precious metal bull markets, with silver eventually outperforming gold. Therefore, increasing our insurance coverage now positions us favorably to meet the surge in demand for precious metal storage when prices soar."

The Safe House’s insurance is brokered by Marsh McLennan and underwritten by Lloyd’s of London insurers.
