Invest in Gold and Silver in Your IRA
You have worked hard to build your retirement savings and naturally you want to protect those savings as best as you can. But how do you protect them against another financial crisis or the effects of weakening dollar or the scourge of inflation. Traditional investments like stocks and bonds and property have been shown historically to perform badly in these situations. Precious metals like gold and silver on the other hand, have historically performed extremely well in these circumstances. And with the increased risks to the financial system and rampant inflation, there has never been a better time to make an investment in precious metals through your IRA.
Precious Metals IRAs
The 1977 Taxpayer Relief Act allows you to buy gold and/or silver in an IRA. You can purchase eligible gold or silver coins or bars through your IRA and have them securely stored on your behalf in a high security specialized vault. All you need is an IRA account with our recommended and approved custodian (see below) and we can take care of the rest.
Why Buy Precious Metals
For centuries precious metals have been understood to be a store of wealth. Gold and silver are solid, tangible assets. You can touch them and hold them in the palm of your hand. They derive their value from the fact that they are limited in supply and finite in nature. They cannot be created or destroyed, and they are widely used in industry.
But most importantly they have value because they have been desired by humans for thousands of years for these very reasons. Gold and silver are real money.
Owning something that is both finite and desired means that as more and more currency is created the price of gold measured in that currency will also rise. Therefore, gold and silver are an excellent hedge against inflation and a weakening dollar. Historically, precious metals have also proven to be a hedge against deflation.
Precious metals are also uncorrelated with other asset classes, which means that the events that cause precious metal to rise in value are different to those that cause stocks, bonds, or property to rise in value. This makes an allocation to precious metals a very astute way to diversify your portfolio and provide an element of financial insurance in an uncertain world.
Owning precious metals can protect your savings, your portfolio and your family’s financial security. Precious metals have not just been a vital investment in the past but remain a vital investment now and in the future.
This is why, everyone should own some gold as part of their investment portfolio.
