The Consortium Investment Bank
The Consortium Investment Bank Complex
Shortly after the government of Port Ember decided to establish the Consortium, they realised the desperate need many nations held regarding high level financial services, and that this need is what kept many nations from expanding their economies. Thus the government formed a partnership with several successfull Port Emberian conglomorates and established the Consortium Investment Bank in order to meet several needs for the coming venture.
The Bank offers High Return Investment Services, Development Loans and Safety Vault Services.
The Bank owns a secure vault where member nations may safely store their gold reserves or other valuable objects. The vault is a secure facility, seperate from the Main Bank Building. Between its fenced perimeter and granite lined concrete structure lie rings of razor wire and minefields. The grounds are monitored by high-resolution night vision video cameras and microphones. The subterranean vault is made of hardened steel plates, I-beams and concrete cylinders. Its torch and drill resistant door is 60cm thick and weighs 20 tons. The vault door is set on a 100-hour time lock, and can only be opened by members of the vault staff who must dial separate combinations. The complex itself is located within the center of a classified Port Ember Security Forces (military) base to add yet another layer of security.
