The Brink’s Co. (BCO), which stores and transports bullion, is set to open one of the world’s largest precious metals vaults in the London area within the next month, at a time when investors’ gold holdings are at a record.
The firm plans to open the facility with a major London clearing company and is considering opening another vault next year, Orit Eyal-Fibeesh, managing director for Brink’s in the U.K., said in an e-mail yesterday. The vault will be able to hold a “very substantial” amount of metal, she said, without being more specific.
