  • Maintenance Fees are assessed annually on the anniversary date in which your account is opened.
  • Storage Fees are assessed annually in the month Delaware Depository first received notification of the metals to be purchased.

Example
For a new investor (with an account value of $100,000 or less) the fees for the first year are $225 (this is due when the account is opened) and $175 each following year. For a small investment, this can represent excessive carrying costs. Please bear in mind, investments in precious metals do not yield any dividends and these costs must be paid annually in cash by the investor.
