What is a Gold IRA?

While a Gold IRA (also known as a Self-Directed precious metals IRA) shares many similarities with a traditional IRA, it provides clients far more control and flexibility in determining how they build and manage this part of their retirement. For example, a Gold IRA provides you with an opportunity to diversify your retirement assets by combining ownership of both paper instruments and tangible assets like gold bars and coins. This approach combines the benefits of traditional paper investments with the added security of possessing physical assets that grow in value during periods of economic crisis. In protecting your future, a Gold IRA provides access to both options as part of your overall diversification strategy.

How does a Gold IRA work?

A Gold IRA combines the wealth-building advantages of tax-deferment with the asset protection characteristics of tangible gold, providing you with greater control over your future.  A Gold IRA acts as a buffer between you and conventional paper assets. In order to maintain the tax-deferred integrity of the physical gold and silver you purchase using your Self-Directed IRA, your precious metals are stored securely and fully insured in an IRS-approved depository of your choosing.
