Emotions always play a role when it comes to precious metals. Gold is energy which has a presence. Archaic references indicate an imaginary and symbolic link with the shining, bright and hot sun.
Round forms are reminiscent of nuggets, bars or coins. Interior architects live off tension and energy fields – they have to „capture“ visitors and impress them.
Clear lines … as well as clearly definable functional areas allow good, quick orientation. Here discretion has an important role, although with us it comes into its own without baroque elements and massive dark doors.
You can find modern design on the one hand and conservative elements on the other at pro aurum as soon as you enter the Goldhaus. Tensions? Yes, but only of the positive kind. You will probably not see these kinds of material compositions anywhere else. So let yourself be inspired and stimulated too by the language of shapes and materials. It costs nothing to give it a try…
An architectural piece of art
Sophisticated and massive. Unique and familiar. Bright gold against dull grey. Quite a contrast. And symbolic. What the architect Rainer Freitag has visualised and created can be described as follows: a work of art in its own right.
The idea was to create a building in the shape of a gold bar – another recognisable symbol of pro aurum, as it were. It is self-explanatory and has a strong identity. The „over-ground“ dimensions have been precisely chosen: 42 metres long, 23 metres wide and 8 metres high. The dimensions are derived from the volume of gold mined around the world to date. Is that a lot or not much? We will leave that for you to decide, our customers and partners.
A building is a home …
… if you feel happy in it, the interior and external parts are in harmony and form one whole unit. The large-scale gold-coloured façade cladding has been made from recycled old coins and therefore provides another nice analogy to the main work of our company. Gold stands for intrinsic value, and concrete and basalt for solidarity and stability. All of which is fitting for an important trading company.
The world of information at the Goldhouse
In order to make the fascination of gold and the history of precious metals accessible to as many people as possible, we are setting up our own exhibition in the customer hall of the Goldhaus.
We don’t really want to call it a „museum“, but will give visitors an introduction to the mysterious and exciting world of worldwide precious metal mining, and show them 48 coins and bars made out of gold, silver, platinum and palladium.
Global activities …
… are not kept a secret. A large monitor provides a fascinating insight into the trading and production structures of gold, shows the mining and processing of precious metals and the role of pro aurum in this worldwide context.
Welcome to the Goldhouse.
Be inspired by the language of form and materials…
Your precious metal deposit.
When it comes to the safe-keeping of your precious metals, you should not make any compromises. We can store items valued above 10,000 Euros indefinitely and securely. It goes without saying that you are and remain the sole and unrestricted owner and always have access to your „stocks“ during normal opening hours.
Everything is possible …
… well almost everything. You can have the precious metals regrouped at any time, i.e. exchange gold for silver. You can also add to your stocks and thereby remain extremely flexible with regards to your investment.
That also includes attractive purchase conditions, as the stocks stored with us can be fully or partially sold back to pro aurum, as desired.
Your safe deposit box with us
Where should you put gold bars? Where are precious metals, coins, documents and personal details safe? At the bank or at home? Definitely not in the wardrobe or under the bed. Who is actually able to call a safe their own? No need to worry about security: as a customer of pro aurum you can make use of our safe deposit boxes at our branches in Munich, Berlin and Zurich. We will be happy to offer you independent advice.
You have the choice…
…of four different sizes of safe deposit boxes, which you have access to at all times during normal opening hours. The smallest version alone offers 3,300 cubic centimetres and space amounting to 2,300 ounces of gold – with a current market value of around 1.5 million Euros. And if you don’t want to store quite as much gold as that: the safe deposit box can also store sensitive papers, coins and other articles.
full service strategy
The needs and requirements of the precious metal market require special attention. A systematic and deliberate approach is the basis for the current and future development of the company. Our knowledge is based on long-term experience and profound knowledge of the market. We are a partner for our customers and use our know-how for the specific and stable formation and expansion of their assets, as well as for asset protection.
Launching new products …
… in an extremely-conservative market, as well as in new business sectors, requires reliable and experience sales and marketing. It is not just us who are predicting an increasingly important role for sales and marketing in the future. Banks are also gradually pulling out of the market, and these holes have to be filled. Both today and for the next generation.
pro aurum offers a consulting portal for asset management and consulting, as well as for brokers, which is specific to the sector and perfectly tailor-made. The existing portal for bankers is the best example of the extensive benefits for customers and the high understanding of service by our Goldhaus. Practical sales and marketing is therefore a basis for traditional and new requirements of the whole, complex precious metal sector.
Point-of-sale and logistics are constantly fascinating and associated with a high degree of sensitivity and attentiveness. We are aware of our responsibility when you entrust us with an often considerable piece of your life assets. We are also aware of the consequences of even the most minor lack of attention, and know the emotions which link our customer to the precious metal.
Emotions and logistics definitely have a connection at pro aurum. Why? With investments in gold or silver fewer errors can be „forgiven“ than with other financial products such as investment funds or speculative share portfolios. As a result, when we physically process incoming and outgoing orders at the point-of-sale the process is extremely painstaking, and to a certain extent also safe with regards to emotions and technical work.
Are you interested in investing capital in precious metals? Then you are with the right specialists at pro aurum. Investments in physical precious metals, questions about the denomination and composition of your portfolio, questions about safe storage: make use of over 120 years of experience of the pro aurum team.
We will tell you how to invest in coins or bars in the most effective way, which weight units are worth considering and what differences you have to be aware of between buying and selling. And if you have doubts about the authenticity of some coins and question whether all that glitters really is gold, our numismatists are on site and will tell you.
Consulting at pro aurum: exemplary not just in specialist circles.
We see ourselves as a service provider with a holistic range of services. A central function of our company is the trade in precious metal, where personal and individual customer consulting is indispensable. Questions about selection, sorting and denominations or form are answered just as precisely as those about optimum risk management.
Just in time precious metal orders which are received via the online shop, by e-mail or fax are checked, recorded and prepared for further processing. On demand the desired bars and coins can be ordered. pro aurum makes purchases all over the world, uses reliable networks and sources, and knows renowned coin and minting institutes. Our team’s approx. 120 years of specialist knowledge is also not easy to replace.
One of its main functions is to perform a repeat check of all commercial transactions. Be it the confirmation of incoming customer payments, the maintenance of customer key data, or the daily financial assessment of stocks: in the back office, security plays a very important role when handling sensitive data.
Specialist questions from trading partners as well as the daily business of German trading houses and pro aurum Schweiz AG, the coordination of cash tills and the performance of all applicable outgoing payments: for our employees the routine is just the same as for bookkeeping.
For you as a pro aurum customer this means the security and reliability which you rightly demand when it comes to the processing of your precious metal transactions.
Orders and customer addresses on file cards? Order confirmations by letter? Admittedly, these communication models still make sense in some lines of business. However, whoever deals in precious metals and wants to be a market leader must also be a model in the know-how of data processing and data security.
Gold and other precious metals Assessments and deliveries on time. Knowledge of worldwide markets: Advantages and flexibility for our customers. With IT solutions and work processes that are equivalent to those that we ask of ourselves on a daily basis: Reliability, safety, responsibility.
