Why store your precious metals and valuable assets in Panama?


Panama, is the isthmus that links the continents of North and South America and because of its strategic location is the shipping and logistics hub of the world and the flight hub of Latin America. 

It is also the most stable economy in Central and South America, with a consistent growth rate over the last number of years. Panama is renowned for its political stability, world class infrastructure, rule of law and it is often referred to as the Switzerland of Latin America. 

Geographically, Panama is close to the United States and Canada, only seven hours from LA, two and a half hours from Miami and four hours from New York but, more importantly, when protecting your physical assets it is outside of US and EU jurisdictions providing you with geographical diversification but close enough that you can get there quickly.

Panama is an excellent International diversification destination for your assets and risk aversion, and as per the treaties established with the United States during the handover of the canal, it has no military which completely negates the risk of a military coup.

Why Panama City for Gold & Silver


Diversification is rule number one in investing and it essentially means that your capital should be carefully and intelligently placed in various types of investments to protect yourself from unpredictable events that can be anything from a localized financial crisis, like a bank collapse to something as global as another world war.

Some of these we have already witnessed in our life times, world war two, the Cyprus banking Bail in and most recently the Covid-19 pandemic.

Think about what you would do in a worst case scenario, like that of another world war and who you can foresee as being the players involved.  In the event of this type of scenario unfolding, would it even be possible for you to fly to Singapore, Hong Kong or any location in the Far or Middle East and be able to walk away with your cash or precious metals?

Panama is right on the doorstep of the US and even if you are unable to fly here for some reason, getting here by land or sea is always a possibility.


There are a number of inherent problems when holding your assets within a bank vault or bank safety deposit box. You are beholden to the bank’s own rules and regulations as well as the potentially draconian laws of the banking supervisory bodies. These regulations can be from something as trivial as subjective charges and fees to something as major as a banking bail-in.

Your safety deposit boxes within banks are no longer safe or private. A recent example of this is an international bank, HSBC  initiating an ‘inspection’ of all private safety deposit boxes in Hong Kong and then, only after the fact, notifying the clients of this inspection while at the same time updating their terms and conditions giving the bank the contractual right to open your private safety deposit box for inspection and to deal with the contents at their sole and absolute discretion
