There are good debts, and there are bad debts. Most people will agree that a housing loan is a form of good debt. Yet, given the chance, the majority will choose to pay down their housing loan so that they can speed up the prospect of being debt-free. For example, you or your spouse receives a sizeable year-end bonus. Or one of you decides to cash out on a profitable investment. Perhaps one of you wins the lottery. After splurging some of the windfall, you will probably think of paying off your debts, such as your housing loan.  continue reading >>

The contents of a bank safe deposit boxes are not covered by insurance. Never store a passport or any document you might need to get a hold of in emergency in a bank safe deposit box. The government can simply close all banks as they did in 1933 in a "Banking Holiday". Law is malleable in the hands of any judge. He can seize the money or gold under the pretense of money laundering hiding it from the government. Under Civil Asset Forfeiture, they can assume the money is guilty of a crime being even tax evasion. It then is your burden to fight in court to get it back.

Safe Deposit Box - In response to "Time to Part with Safe Deposit Boxes"​ (12 Feb, The Straits Times)

This article hits the nail on the head regarding why traditional safe deposit boxes are going by the wayside. As the desire to diversify both risk and wealth is greater today than ever before. The once symbol of financial adulthood, to quote the author, is now facing some serious retirement issues due to ever increasing overheads, lack of real privacy and legal obfuscation. The safe deposit box industry has failed to keep up with the demands of the cosmopolitan class, who were its traditional patrons. Pressuring them to retreat into the home safe solution. Although deceptively convenient, the home safe solution is not without its limitations. Home invasion and fire expose the contents to risks covered by most insurers for a mere replacement value of $2000. [email protected] Orchard Road has identified the shortcomings of traditional safe deposit box solutions since 2009. We approached Ngee Ann Development to secure a joint venture to provide a centrally located off-site premise, secured by state of the art robotics & security systems. This configuration allows 24/7 access to an autonomous, non-bank, facility for a discerning clientele. The cost of goods will always face upward pressures, but a business can evolve to justify the increase by closing the value gap via innovation and optimization, and Vault @268 is such a service provider.  continue reading >>
