Gold and Silver IRAs
What is a Gold and Silver IRA?
With the emotional scars of the 2008 crash fresh in the mind of investors, millions are now switching from traditional paper-backed IRAs to precious metals backed IRAs due to dissatisfaction with the stock market, desire for true portfolio diversification and a growing interest in tangible “hard assets” in lieu of paper investments.
Through its team of knowledgeable Gold and Silver IRA specialists, Regent Gold Group helps investors to protect their IRAs against the wild gyrations and volatility of the stock market by anchoring their portfolio(s) with physical Gold and Silver.
Our Gold and Silver IRA is a government-approved alternative to the standard IRA, one that is backed by physical Gold and Silver. It is a Self-Directed IRA, which gives you the power to take control of your own financial future. By making it simple and safe for investors to add precious metals to an IRA, Regent Gold Group is a leader in Precious Metals IRAs.
Benefits Of a Precious Metals IRA
Most Americans with retirement accounts are familiar with the term IRA. It stands for Individual Retirement Account and is a form of retirement plan that provides special tax advantages for retirement savings.
The majority of traditional IRAs consist of stocks, bonds and mutual funds, all of which are risky “paper” assets. This leaves the average IRA portfolio highly susceptible to market fluctuations and loss of value, as became obvious in 2008, when millions of Americans saw their retirement portfolios suffer losses of up to 50% or more.
Now, in an effort to protect their retirement portfolios, millions of smart investors are balancing their portfolios with Self-Directed IRAs backed by precious metals.
Precious metals IRAs allow U.S. citizens to invest in physical assets, not just investment paper like stocks and bonds. With a precious metals IRA, an individual can own physical, precious metals inside of an IRA, while still retaining all the tax-benefits.
The freedom for individuals to control their own retirement portfolios has made the precious metals IRA market one of the fastest growing segments in the financial service industry. It is currently estimated to be $100 billion (2% of all IRAs), with a growth rate of approximately 700-900% over the last five years. Additionally, projected growth is expected to continue along a similar trend over the next five years.
Investors are no longer willing to put their retirement savings at risk. They simply aren’t content with owning paper certificates of stock, bonds or mutual funds.
With Self-Directed IRAs offering more control, more options and more room for growth than standard IRAs can offer, it is hardly a surprise that a growing number of retirement investors are moving into self-directed, precious metals- backed IRAs.
There are many benefits to owning physical Gold and Silver in your IRA, and savvy retirement investors are seeking to own real and tangible precious metals that are stored safely in a secure and insured facility.
