FideliTrade Incorporated offers a full range of specialized precious metals clearing and administrative services to an international network of commercial entities. Our comprehensive menu of trading, custody, delivery, and support services enables banks, brokerage firms and other commercial enterprises to enhance their product mix and service capabilities, and earn additional income, while increasing cross-sale opportunities and reducing the permanent loss of customer assets to competing institutions. And all this can be accomplished with little or no risk or cost.

FideliTrade can tailor a precious metals program to suit your company’s experience, resources and requirements. Through FideliTrade’s Institutional Trading and Administration Service, FideliTrade becomes your provider of trading, custody and administrative services. All accounts are titled in your institution’s name, and only your designated staff members are authorized to conduct trades. You may elect to conduct your business through a single “omnibus account” or create an unlimited number of accounts corresponding to each of your individual clients. In either case, FideliTrade will provide you with detailed reports of all activity and holdings. The Institutional Trading and Administration Service is designed for regulated financial institutions that are willing to dedicate some marketing and administrative resources to the development of a proprietary precious metals service, but do not want to incur the expense of developing a comprehensive program of their own.

FideliTrade offers its correspondent institutions a safe, convenient and cost effective method to provide precious metals investments to their customers.

FideliTrade’s institutional clientele include banks, brokerage firms, investment funds and other financial service organizations.

Bulk Custody
The Bulk Custody Service is the most cost effective way to invest in precious metals through FideliTrade. Take advantage of narrow spreads and avoid coin and bar premiums. Customers receive confirmations and periodic statements detailing all transactions and holdings. Buy, sell or take request at any time. Customers can convert their bullion to coins and bars for a nominal fee.  Delivery upon request is available.

Individual Custody
The Individual Custody Service is FideliTrade’s most cost effective and popular custody service for specific bars and coins. Customers receive confirmations and periodic statements detailing all transactions and holdings. Bullion is held in a fully allocated account and customers can buy, sell, or request delivery at any time.

Segregated Custody Segregated Custody is FideliTrade’s premier custody service. With segregated storage, bullion is held separate and apart from the bullion of other customers. Bullion is separately packaged, sealed in its own container, and uniquely labeled specifically for each customer. Bullion is held in a fully allocated account and customers can buy, sell, or request delivery at any time.

Customer Protections and Insurance
Customer holdings are protected through the use of FideliTrade’s account structure, proprietary systems, stringent internal controls, and state-of-the-art security systems, along with various insurance coverages. Legal protections are afforded through the Uniform Commercial Code (i.e., holdings are identified as customer, not FideliTrade assets). Also, FideliTrade maintains $1 Billion in “all risk” insurance coverage for bullion held in its high-security vaults, and $100 million in contingent vault coverage. Our policy is underwritten by Lloyd’s of London and includes all risks of physical loss and/or physical damage, including mysterious disappearance and/or unexplained loss and shortage, employee dishonesty and theft.

Counterfeit Equipment Sigma2FideliTrade works closely with our wholly owned depository to ensure that bullion that is sold or deposited into the depository is thoroughly inspected and tested. Substantial resources are continuously dedicated to obtain counterfeit detection equipment, technology and experienced personnel. Dimension measurement devices, precision scales, density equipment, magnets, conductivity testers, thickness & inclusion ultrasounds, resonant ultrasounds, x-ray florescence spectroscopy, and specialized x-ray imaging among other processes are utilized onsite to assure incoming bullion is authentic. Putting these safeguards in place enables us to stand behind every piece of bullion that is sold. FideliTrade has built our reputation on trust and we take that very seriously.
