The days of hiding your valuables under your mattress or burying gold in your backyard are long gone. We all want to protect and secure our collection of prized paintings, jewelry and of course, emergency cash. Maybe you have that rare dinosaur fossil you discovered when on your archeological dig that one summer that needs to be safe?
For the ultra-wealthy, tried-and-true methods of safeguarding their precious valuables is not an expense taken lightly.
