Invest in keeping your gold safe

The price of gold has increased dramatically and as a consequence, there have been a number of burglaries, where gold has been stolen from Asian families and neighbourhoods. Follow these tips to reduce your risk of becoming a victim:

  Make sure all of your jewellery is adequately covered by your insurance

   Consider installing a British Standard safe. For further information on security tested safes, visit
