Delaware Depository’s Commitment to Providing Trusted Bullion Safekeeping Services

WILMINGTON, Del., April 30, 2024

Depository Trust Company of Delaware, LLC dba Delaware Depository is committed to providing its valued customers with unwavering dedication to security, integrity, and transparency in providing precious metals safekeeping services in a trustworthy manner. Delaware Depository, which should not be confused with First State Depository Company, LLC or Argent Asset Group, has built a reputation for integrity and reliability that sets it apart in the precious metals safekeeping industry.


As an approved depository of CME Group, Delaware Depository has continually served as a reliable delivery point for physical settlements of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium traded on the COMEX and NYMEX.
Delaware Depository is unique among other depositories because it is a Delaware state-chartered limited-purpose trust company. This means that Delaware Depository’s trust company operations are independently supervised and examined by the Delaware State Bank Commissioner. This also means that Delaware Depository is uniquely qualified to be a custodian in the “physical possession” of bullion held in individual retirement accounts (IRA) by Internal Revenue Code Section 408(m). Internal audits and external audits are done on an annual basis by a PCAOB-registered independent accounting firm to confirm that precious metals held in the custody of Delaware Depository match what customers own.

Delaware Depository Security and Reliability


Alongside physical security, cybersecurity is a top priority as Delaware Depository maintains appropriate internal controls over the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of systems and digital assets, as confirmed by SOC-1 audits conducted by a PCAOB-registered independent auditing firm.
As a strong indicator of the level of trust placed in Delaware Depository, Lloyds of London underwriters provide $1 billion in all-risk insurance coverage to protect customers against loss of or damage to precious metals in the custody of Delaware Depository.


“At Delaware Depository, customer assets are fully allocated, independently audited, and held completely off our own balance sheet. Our core values of security, integrity, and transparency have endured since we first formed Delaware Depository to be a trusted custodian of customer assets,” stated Jonathan Potts, the Managing Director of Delaware Depository.
Delaware Depository has earned the trust of its customers who primarily consist of banks, trust companies, and entities involved in the precious metals supply chain.
