The purity of the gold held in Voima Accounts equals 999.9 parts per thousand.
Voima gold bars meet the requirements set by the European Union in terms of purity, markings and shape. Our bars are manufactured through LBMA accredited refineries. Gold can be withdrawn in 100 gram and 1 kilogram bars.
Twice a year independent laboratory Eurofins Labtium conducts random checks to ensure that the gold is 999.9 pure.
PriceWaterhouseCoopers audits the gold backing Voima Accounts every third month.
Safety is our number one priority. Our vault is built according to the highest classification standards for precious metals safekeeping. Your gold is safely stored and surveilled 24/7.
We store the gold in Finland, which is one of the safest nations in the world. Here are a few reasons why:
— Finland is considered the most stable country in the world, according to the Fund for Peace’s Fragile States Index.
— Finland’s police and internal security as a whole are the second best in the world, according to the International Police Science Association’s World Internal Security and Police Index.
— Finland has the least organized crime in the world, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report 2018: Organized Crime.
— Finland's banks are the strongest in the world, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report 2018: Soundness of Banks.
Voima follows principles and rules for responsible gold sourcing. The majority of Voima's gold is sourced from LBMA accredited refinery partners, which not only meet, but exceed conflict minerals regulations. LBMA refiners are audited annually and are required to report publicly.
Voima aims to source most gold from Nordic recycled metal. In 2019, over 25 percent of all gold sold by Voima originated from Finnish recycled gold.
Voima's sourcing division trades with recycling gold brokers who act as intermediaries between Voima and individuals. These "sources" are called Voima Miners. If you wish to become a Voima Miner, or if you have any questions, please send us an email at email@example.com.
