Nieuwenhuijs observes: "After the global financial crisis, not only have Western central banks changed the way they talk about gold -- that is, they have become more honest regarding gold's function as a safe haven -- but, as a sector, central banks have also become net buyers. Many central banks have redistributed their gold, carefully considering all possible future risks and developments.

"A few central banks have upgraded their gold to current industry standards to be able to trade frictionlessly in international markets. One central bank, the Banque de France, has even enhanced its entire vaulting infrastructure. And this is just based upon publicly available information."
