About Strategic Wealth Preservation

Strategic Wealth Preservation (SWP) is a fully-integrated precious metals dealer and vaulting facility located in the Cayman Islands. We specialize in the acquisition and secure storage of precious metals for individuals, companies, trusts and wealth management professionals on behalf of their clients.

We have partnered with major US wholesalers and mints to create a highly liquid two-way market for precious metals trading within our vault. We also hold the distinction of being an approved storage facility for precious metals held within self-directed Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) for American citizens and are an approved distributor of the Royal Mint of England, Perth Mint of Australia and several LBMA and COMEX approved refineries.

SWP provides clients with fully allocated, segregated and insured storage of their precious metals in our Class III UL-rated vault. Clients retain direct and complete legal ownership of their precious metal holdings while they are in our facility. Access to stored assets is available by appointment on 24-hours' notice.

SWP is housed within the impressive Cayman Technology Centre (CTC) complex, a purpose-built, energy efficient space that has won awards for its innovation, sustainability, and energy saving design. The CTC's primary energy source is solar power, and for added convenience, there are back up batteries and a generator to provide uninterrupted power to the building in case of severe weather conditions. The CTC is also home to one of the largest and most respected security companies in the Caribbean, The Security Centre Ltd., adding to SWP's own state-of-the-art security system and providing our clients with one of the safest and most flexible storage locations in the world.

Industry Endorsements

"As a gold analyst for many years, I’ve waited a long time for a bullion storage facility that met all the requirements I wanted, and I found it in Strategic Wealth Preservation. A state-of-the-art depository, complete online access, fully allocated storage, and a highly reputable international location. Perhaps best of all, I don’t have to travel halfway around the world if I want to access my bullion in person—it’s right here in North America."

- Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst, GoldSilver.com

“When you ponder the implications of Cyprus, Greece, Puerto Rico and the Chinese stock market you may want to consider keeping your precious metals offshore in someplace like the insured vaults of Strategic Wealth Preservation in Grand Cayman. The alternative is too dreadful to think about when governments start getting greedy.”

- Bob Moriarty, 321gold.com

“The Cayman Islands, to my mind, provides the greatest economic freedom and opportunities to investors of any country in the Western Hemisphere. Accordingly, Cayman’s premier precious metals storage facility, SWP, has become the Western Hemisphere’s best choice for wealth storage.”

– Jeff Thomas, feature writer for Casey Research’s International Man

Client Testimonials

"Many thanks for your speedy and professional service. You have made bullion buying not just easy, but affordable compared to US options. Very much appreciated."

– Adam, Cayman Islands

"I was able to visit the new SWP precious metals storage facility while on a family vacation in July 2015. The SWP vault is located inside of a private security building and is state of the art. Operations Manager Mark Yaxley was very accommodating and made it easy for me to open an account and deposit precious metals that I already owned. SWP also has business relationships with reputable North American bullion dealers and I was able to open a 2nd storage account at their vault through Sprott Money. I can now purchase precious metals with a click of a mouse and have them stored on Grand Cayman Island."

– Bill, California

“When I visited SWP, I was very impressed with their facility. Their vault rivals secured storage at a sovereign mint. Their facility is state of the art with every system having a critical backup, such as, four sources of power; primary solar, secondary battery, tertiary generator and finally electricity from the local utility company. Their protocol is thorough with emphasis on fully allocated and segregated storage. As a long term resident of the Cayman Islands, I now have peace of mind knowing my physical metals are secured in a best-in-class depository. For me, SWP is the obvious choice.”

- Joe, Cayman Islands

“SWP and Operations Manager Mark Yaxley specifically, have surpassed my expectations. As one of SWP’s first retail customers, I needed to see the vault for myself, so my wife and I traveled down to Grand Cayman along with our deposit. Mark picked us up at the port, allowed us to see the operation at SWP’s facility, and showed us around the island before dropping us back at the port to continue on with our cruise. I highly recommend SWP for storing your precious metals.”

– Don, Georgia

"My experience with SWP has been nothing short of outstanding. Best customer service I've ever experienced, anywhere, in any area of my life. I plan on being a customer for life."
