Why should I add precious metals to my investment portfolio?

Many investment experts recommend investors own precious metals as a hedge to properly diversify a portfolio. Many investors own precious metals to offset geo-economic uncertainties.

Precious metals are considered a “safe haven” asset. Precious metals generally fluctuate independently of other markets such as the Dow index, S&P 500 or the NASDAQ. When “paper” markets become volatile, gold and silver can help reduce exposure to possible losses. Although physical gold and silver can offer significant upside potential, they are mainly used as a hedge to help secure and properly diversify an investment portfolio.

What is a Precious Metal IRA?

A precious metal IRA is an Individual Retirement Account that includes IRS-approved physical gold, silver, platinum, and palladium products. A precious metal IRA account enjoys all the same tax-deferment benefits that a traditional or Roth IRA provides with the added benefit of owning physical precious metals. The precious metals are held in custody by an IRS-approved custodian and must be stored in an IRS-approved insured commercial depository.

How does a Precious Metal IRA work?

A precious metal IRA allows you to hold physical precious metals in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium in a tax-deferred account. There are a wide range of IRS-approved precious metal products available for you to choose from. Orion Metal Exchange can help you establish and fund a precious metal IRA with a simple phone call. You can fund a precious metal IRA with a contribution or by a transfer of funds from a pre-existing retirement account. Your precious metals will be stored and insured at an IRS-approved depository. A precious metal IRA follows the same IRS guidelines as any other IRS-approved retirement account. With a precious metal IRA, you can opt to receive a traditional distribution or request physical delivery of precious metals as an in-kind distribution.

When considering any IRS-approved program, we recommend that you consult with a tax attorney or accountant to determine which IRA-approved program best suits your needs.
