Diversification, Protection, Profitability
Physical precious metals offer diversification, protection and excellent profit potential for any portfolio. During the past decade, precious metals IRAs have continuously out-performed traditional paper IRAs. The purchasing power of the U.S. dollar has declined by 90% since 1950.
When you secure Precious Metals within your retirement portfolio, nothing comes between you and your physical asset. We believe it would be an oversight to rely solely on Gold ETF’s and mining stocks to gain true diversification.
Not only do some gold stocks represent only 1/10 of an ounce of gold but our experience in the past 10 years clearly shows the devastating effects of Wall Street’s ethics and morals: companies reporting millions in profits one day and filing for bankruptcy the next; employees losing their jobs, and investor’s taking huge hits to their portfolios. When you transition into the precious metals markets you no longer have to rely on questionable ethics and business practices of a company’s officers.
Aside from being an excellent store of value, Precious Metals are considered liquid assets. They can readily be converted into cash or goods when needed because it is a globally recognized currency.
The single most powerful benefit offered through a Precious Metals IRA is the ability to accumulate growth from your precious metals investment on a tax-deferred basis in a Traditional IRA or on a tax-free basis if you qualify and invest through a Roth IRA. This lucrative incentive is not available through other traditional investment vehicles, especially retail brokerage accounts.
In the 1920s an ounce of Gold, worth $20, could easily purchase a high end, tailor-made suit. Today, that same ounce of Gold still buys a high end tailor-made suit. The twenty dollar bill, however, will not even cover the cost of a nice tie. Gold’s purchasing power and wealth preservation has a proven track record even prior to the beginning of our modern financial system.
