Retirement Accounts

Many investors don’t realize that they can own gold in their retirement account. If you haven’t taken a look at your retirement plan recently, it may be time for some fresh thinking.
Taking Control of Your Future

People with retirement plans typically have a conventional IRA or 401(k) with a bank or brokerage firm that specializes in bank deposits, stocks, mutual funds, annuities and other assets. In many cases, these investors have little or no say in the investments being made. A self-directed plan empowers the individual to make his or her own investment decisions and adds to the available investment options. Precious metals are among those options.

What better way to save for retirement than with the ultimate savings vehicle — physical gold.

  • Gold and silver can be your best investment friend during times of crisis. Precious metals thrive on crisis and instability. This makes a strong case for keeping at least some metals in your retirement portfolio at all times — and more during periods of crisis.
  • Gold and silver are the ultimate inflation hedge. It’s often said that at any time in history, one ounce of gold would buy an expensive men’s suit, and with the gold price where it currently is, we know that to be true today.
  • The rise in precious metal prices have been spectacular over the past 40 years. In 1971 the price of gold was $35 an ounce. Silver traded for about a dollar in 1971.
  • Gold and silver are tangible. Most other investments are pieces of paper representing a claim on physical assets or revenue streams. Gold and silver are actual physical assets — hard money and because they represent value unto themselves their prices will never go to zero.
A Simple Solution

We make it easy to own gold in retirement accounts. Our account tools are designed to help you safeguard your future through the direct ownership of physical gold and silver.

An IRA (Individual Retirement Account) helps you take control of your financial future in order to reach your retirement goals. The Strategic Gold Clear Title Account Program allows investors to take advantage of all the benefits of owning physical bullion in their retirement accounts. Diversifying your retirement savings with precious metals has never been easier. Whether you are opening a new account or rolling over an existing IRA into a new plan that includes precious metals as an important diversification asset, we can help.

Existing IRAs with banks, credit unions, stock brokerage firms or other financial service providers can be transferred directly to one of our referred trust companies. Since our preferred custodians’ only business is the administration of self-directed accounts, they are able to provide specialized white-glove service designed to maximize your ability to control and manage your account assets.
