Exclusive safety deposit bank near Harrods angles to be worlds most expensive
Welcome to the billionaires new piggy bank. A bank vault in a grade-II listed 120-year-old former mansion next to the Dorchester Hotel on Londons Park Lane will open for business next week.
This is no ordinary bank. This one will be slightly more discerning of its customers than the average high street bank branch. We wont deal with millionaires, says Sean Hoey, managing director of the facility, run by International Bank Vaults (IBV). We will be dealing only with billionaires.
Hoey, who was poached by IBV from Harrods where he was in charge of the Knightsbridge department stores safety deposit boxes, claimed the new site would be far more exclusive than Harrods.
