VaultChainTM Silver from Kitco offers 1:1 ownership, which is an advantage over ETFs and other collective vehicles.
In an ETF, each unit represents ownership in a fund or trust that in turn holds physical silver with a bank or other depository.
Each fund or trust charges an annual fee to cover management, storage, marketing and administration. Final beneficial owners do not control the underlying asset and cannot take physical delivery.
With VaultChainTM Silver, there are no fabrication costs. This ensures that you avoid this extra expense associated with asset management products like ETFs.
There is no intermediary trust or fund with VaultChainTM Silver. Rather, physical silver is owned directly via a blockchain database and is deliverable in full.
