Your personal safe is available five days a week, excluding public holidays. The sizes range from a height of 9 cm up to the size of a wardrobe. Extras such as secure transport boxes, copy machines, telephones and document shredders are at your convenience and disposal, as well as a furnished conference room you can rent for your meetings.
You can rent your safe completely anonymously. You don’t have to give a name…. just choose a password and you get two keys – one for you, and maybe one for a trusted friend or relative. The safe box centre is run by a private company, not a bank, so it is completely divorced from the international banking system.

This place might be the ultimate safe haven where you can store valuable documents, precious metals like gold and silver, gemstones and anything else small and portable. And for residents of most countries, there is absolutely no requirement to declare assets like these on your tax return.
