World’s Best Offshore Private Vault Videos For 2015, Honorable Mentions

Last Wednesday, Offshore Safe Deposit Boxes started naming the “World’s Best Offshore Private Vault Videos” for 2015. Third place in the “short program” category went to Siam Secure (Thailand), runner-up was Sovereign Safe Deposit Centres (England), and the winner for the TV commercial-style marketing videos this year was Custodian Vaults (Australia). Third place in the “long program” category went to Royal Safe Deposit Boxes (Malaysia), second place was Xecure (Mexico), and the winner for the longer, more comprehensive marketing videos was St. James’ Safe Deposit (England). Congratulations to all.

Today, Offshore Safe Deposit Boxes names the “honorable mentions” for the “World’s Best Offshore Private Vault Videos” in 2015. First up is Hausler (Argentina). They throw a lot of information at you in their 1 minute 56 second Spanish-language production, so hold on tight:


“Hausler, Cajas de seguridad privadas – Institucional”
YouTube Video

Next there’s SDL (Secure Deposits Limited) out of England. They take a more subdued approach with their very professional corporate video:

Then there’s Swiss Security Boxes (Mexico). They strike a nice balance between providing relevant information and trying to “strike a chord” with prospective customers:


“CAJAS DE SEGURIDAD”
YouTube Video

Finally, there’s AmsterdamSafe (Netherlands). A terrific marketing video that just missed out on a “top 3” spot in the “long program” category:


“AmsterdamGold AmsterdamSafe Gold storage and Vaults”
YouTube Video

That’s it for “The World’s Best Offshore Private Vault Videos” competition (my personal opinion really) in 2015.

A number of overseas non-bank vaults released marketing videos this year, so “judging” was significantly more difficult than in 2014. Based on what I saw, everyone should be proud of their efforts.

See you next year…

World’s Best Offshore Private Vault Videos For 2015, Part 2

On Wednesday, Offshore Safe Deposit Boxes started naming the “World’s Best Offshore Private Vault Videos” for 2015. Third place in the “short program” category went to Siam Secure (Thailand), the runner-up was Sovereign Safe Deposit Centres (England), and the winner for TV commercial-style marketing videos this year was Custodian Vaults (Australia).

Today, we’re going to name 2015’s “World’s Best Offshore Private Vault Videos” for the longer, more comprehensive marketing videos.

Taking third place in the “long program” category is Royal Safe Deposit Boxes (Malaysia). I felt like I was watching a short film with this corporate video. Different, and very likeable. You may need a tissue viewing this though:


“Royal Safe Deposit Box”
YouTube Video

Runner-up in this category is Xecure (Mexico). It’s not in English, but most non-Spanish speakers might still be able to understand what’s still going on. A really good production:

The “World’s Best Offshore Private Vault Video” for 2015 (long program category) belongs to St. James’ Safe Deposit (England). I thought this non-bank vault’s corporate video was exceptional. The information provided and Managing Director Nigel Kay’s reassuring tone of voice really gives the impression one’s personal belongings would be safe and secure with them:


“SAFE DEPOSIT BOXES – MANCHESTER AND LEEDS St James’ Safe Deposit Co Ltd”
YouTube Video

Congratulations to all. Especially those “World’s Best” winners in the short program (Custodian Vaults) and long program (St. James’ Safe Deposit) groups. But we’re not done yet. Stop back early next week as Offshore Safe Deposit Boxes names this year’s “honorable mentions.”

Related Reading: Reporting Requirements For Transporting Currency In/Out Of The U.S., Other Countries

Back on March 19, 2014, I asked the following question on Offshore Safe Deposit Boxes:

Suppose an individual decides to take currency out of the United States for the purpose of:

1. Storing it in their offshore safe deposit box (prepping for an anticipated major crisis or geographically diversifying legally-obtained and reported cash in a private vault perhaps?), and/or

2. Buying assets like precious metals for that storage container

Just how much money can be taken out of the country?

Do regular readers remember what the answer was?

From that post:

From the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website:

Money and Other Monetary Instruments

You may bring into or take out of the country, including by mail, as much money as you wish. However, if it is more than $10,000, you will need to report it to CBP. Ask the CBP officer for the Currency Reporting Form (FinCen 105). The penalties for non-compliance can be severe.

“Money” means monetary instruments and includes U.S. or foreign coins currently in circulation, currency, travelers’ checks in any form, money orders, and negotiable instruments or investment securities in bearer form.

“You may bring into or take out of the country, including by mail, as much money as you wish. However, if it is more than $10,000, you will need to report it to CBP.”

Got it.

A couple of days ago, I noticed Andrew Henderson over at the Nomad Capitalist website had recently blogged about reporting requirements for transporting currency in/out of the country as well. The scope of Henderson’s focus was somewhat bigger though. He wrote on February 13:

We compiled the currency reporting requirements for a number of countries to show you which countries are easy to carry cash in, and which are less forgiving. Make sure you note the local currencies used…

Henderson went on to discuss the currency reporting requirements for Australia, China, the European Union, India, Mexico, Switzerland, Thailand, United Kingdom, and the United States (in that order). He also touched on precious metals and gems.

It’s an insightful read, which you can view in its entirety over on the Nomad Capitalist website here.

• The addition of new non-bank vaults in countries already on that list, including Germany (EMS Werteinlagerung GbR in Heidenheim an der Brenz, EOS in Heidenheim, Goldkontor Hamburg GmbH in Hamburg, and HAMEKO in Hamburg), Malaysia (RockSafe in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah), Singapore (Christie’s Fine Art Storage Services aka CFASS), Switzerland (Erutec AG in Alpnach and Swiss Gold Safe Ltd. in Zurich and St. Gotthard), the United Kingdom/England (Midland Safe Deposits in Birmingham, Secure Deposits Ltd in Leicester, Sovereign Safe Deposit Centres in the London suburb of Harrow, St. James’ Safe Deposit in Leeds, UK Safe Deposit Boxes Ltd in the London suburb of Southall, Vault Safe Deposit Centres in Leicester, and Zurich Safe Deposits in Bradford), and Uruguay (Cofres Bitcoin in Montevideo)
• Adding English translations (powered by Google) of web pages when no English language option was available
