Who we are
Leveraging more than 100 years of experience
We have been in business since December 1999. Verne Investments is the General Partner for a group of companies, and together with our affiliates we represent a global, private asset management enterprise. Through our global group of affiliates we specialize in, own and manage gold bullion reserves as well as bonds, valuable numismatic assets and other commodities. All our bullion gold deposits are comprised of allocated gold, are of good delivery specifications (GDS) and verifiable in the Blue Screen System or backed by Safekeeping Receipts (SKRs), usually with full banking responsibility.
The bullion bars are 1KG or 12.5KG bars, with internationally recognized hallmarks, including JM London, South Africa, LG, JM Australia, Crown, Perth, Hammer, Swan, and Flying Horse. We have offices in Switzerland, London, UAE, and USA.
Our principal and our team possess over 100 years of combined experience and expertise in financing and securitization, capital markets, mergers & acquisitions, IPOs, private equity and venture capital. Our domain experience spans many industries, including commodities and gold bullion, healthcare, medical devices, tourism and hospitality, technology, oil & gas, aviation, and manufacturing. Where appropriate, we partner with experts to create powerful solutions for growth and success. We invest to succeed.
What we do
We syndicate blocks of gold bullion in the private, over the counter market when appropriate. We also utilize our gold bullion deposits to securitize or guarantee noteworthy projects, and can use multiple approaches and structures to accomplish project goals:
Outright sale of gold bullion
Providing gold guarantees
Securitization for loans
Acquisition financing (including roll-ups, and consolidations)
Providing securitization for trading programs
Gold bond issuances
Leveraged programs, including private or public leveraged funds
Asset swaps (for example, gold bullion for large cap stocks)
Tax free 401K, IRA or pension plan rollovers to Gold (worldwide)
Co-investing with venture capital, private equity and investment banks
Real estate and infrastructure projects
We generally industry agnostic but we are discerning in our project selection and apply rigorous research, analysis and due diligence procedures. Our minimum transaction size is between USD $100 million and USD $120 million (depending on the prevailing gold price) for a sale transaction and $1 billion for a securitization transaction. Our capability is significant, and we are able to accommodate the needs of the largest buyers, strategic partners, global banks, reserve and central banks, and other global institutions. We generally require that securitization applicants provide ten percent (10%) of the project total as a condition of our funding. Other terms and conditions are agreed upon on a case by case basis, based on the outcomes of our proprietary analysis, research and evaluation methods.
We request that projects or proposals be submitted to us via this website or via this email. Kindly note that we receive large numbers of proposals, and therefore regrettably we do not respond unless there is initial interest or we have questions.
