Interesting comment in this missive by James Turk on storing gold in vaults. Turk suggests using non-bank vaults. Banks are in the business of lending. Non-bank vaults (presumably places like Brinks) are in the business of storing. As such, safe-guarding assets is likely to be a more important part of non-bank vault operator business model.
