On a rainy afternoon in Inwood, N.Y., Savneet Singh, 28, president of Gold Bullion International, steps out of a black town car and walks into the entrance of a 10,000-square-foot brown warehouse.
There are no signs on the door, so if not for the barbwire fence encircling the building and an armored car in the parking lot you might never know the site houses several vaults holding hundreds of millions of dollars in gold, silver, palladium and platinum.
