The Global Metals Standard

World Metal Reserve

World Metal Reserve (WMR) is an Amsterdam based, Dutch and European Union governed entity for: certification, registration, storage, shipping, and trade of precious and base metals including gold, silver and platinum.

High integrity

The decision to make the capital of The Netherlands, Amsterdam, the headquarters of World Metal Reserve (WMR) was established because of its critically-acclaimed international status. In the 17th century, the Dutch were the first to make trading in precious metals possible. In recent times, the Dutch have reformatted regulations; creating some of the strictest and most transparent regulations for bullions, and more. We are proud to have WMR governed under the Dutch and European laws as it gives WMR a head start to become the #1 gold standard resource in the world.

Safety, Security and Sustainability

We value safety above all. This is why we think strategically and act long term, meaning that all physical metals are stored in only the best – secured vaults with selected banks and bonded warehouses all over the world.


What is the world’s oldest, and still the most popular safe haven for investors to stall funds? Indeed, it is gold. It has been this way for thousands of years and will continue on this path for many more years to come. Gold, in the long term, is proven to be immune to geo-political instabilities, market crashes, and any other imaginable collective negative sentiment.

In this first half of 2020, the world is experiencing a crisis that no one in our lifetime has ever experienced before. A global crisis like this is a trigger for individuals to convert their assets into gold. Our team took note of the events that recently took place, their economic effects, and saw an sharp increase of high net-worth clients that seeked consultations with the World Metal Reserve regarding strategic decision-making, and to filter different platforms available for purchasing gold.

Gold: An Investor’s Safe Haven

For centuries, practical investors have been aware of the importance of gold as a long term investment. In addition to wealth diversification, gold has also been renowned to be a safe haven, offering historically proven and time-tested insurance, and protection against turbulent economic periods.

Gold is expected to rally gains this year, as investor demand continues to rise. This is partly induced by global fears of major economic crises. An example is the event wherein the United Kingdom officially left the European Union, known as Brexit, continues to add uncertainty in trading markets as crucial subjects are yet to be resolved; applying pressure on Pound Sterling. In conclusion, now may possibly be an ideal time to invest in gold bullion.


The practice of safekeeping is the storage of assets or other items of value like gold, silver, and platinum in a highly-secured area. Generally, individuals are inclined to place their financial assets in proper safekeeping, and so should you. To do so, you may use self-directed methods of safekeeping or make use of the services provided by WMR. We have direct access to the world’s renowned brokerages and custodians. Each of them are legally responsible for all items in safekeeping. Our direct custodians generally hold valuables for investors while a depository can assume additional control, liability, and responsibility for the aforementioned items in storage.
