what are some of the advantages of storing with cnt depository?

Unlike safety deposit boxes (and unlike many other depositories), all precious metals stored at CNT Depository are 100% insured against all physical loss, damage, theft, or other liability. Their insurance provider is Lloyd's of London.

Since they are a privately owned facility, they are not subject to the same limitations imposed upon banking institutions by the US government. Furthermore, since they do not lend, there is no risk of a "run on the depository" like there is with a bank.

CNT Depository does not contract out any of our storage or security. They store all of your assets in their own highly secured facility. These assets are fully segregated, and remain constantly under our direct protection. Security (both internal and external) is our highest priority.

CNT Depository is a COMEX-approved silver depository. Only 6 facilities worldwide have obtained COMEX certification, and these facilities are highly-scrutinized, monitored, and must meet or exceed the most stringent security requirements in the world.

CNT Depository prides itself on the service they provide to their customers. They take great care of their clients. They provide accurate, efficient, safe procedures to allow you to focus on your life while they focus on the security of your assets.

CNT Depository authenticates all products entering their facility. Their trained, veteran staff inspects each item entering your account for both accuracy and authenticity. They do not store boxes "said to contain" a certain amount of metal. They inspect everything. This added level of security offers each customer peace of mind knowing that his assets have been duly examined at each step of the process.
