6 ADVANTAGES
OF HAVING PRECIOUS METALS IN YOUR IRA

Physical Asset

Gold is a tangible asset. It does not represent a paper promise to pay,like a bond.

Flexibility & Self Directed

You can take advantage of many compounding ounce strategies, hold a variety of metals, and no transactions can occur unless you direct them.

Easy to Sell or Trade

Should you choose to sell or need extra money, precious metals have high liquidity and can be sold at any time.

Protection from Inflation or Economic Turmoil

When inflation devalues paper currency,the purchasing power of Gold and Silver remains steady.

Insurance Against the Unknown

When inflation devalues paper currency,the purchasing power of Gold and Silver remains steady.

Tax-Deferment Options

There is large profit potential in Gold and Silver, due to the current economic and monetary climate. Significant gains within an IRA allow you to defer taxes on those gains.

HOW DO PRECIOUS METALS HELP
BALANCE YOUR PORTFOLIO?

Gold protects
your portfolio

Gold has historically performed extremely well during times of market instability.

Dow - down 20%
Bonds - up 14%
Gold - up 155%
If you held all 3 - 59%

Gold is
a Hedge

The same $1,000 invested in a portfolio of 75% stocks and 25% gold 50 years ago, rebalanced annually to the same 75/25 ratio, would be worth more than $125,000..

Gold protects your portfolio from major market risks
Gold holds its purchasing power
Gold counters currency devaluation

Gold Secures
Your Retirement

Stocks and other market-based instruments can lose value substantially and quickly. Real estate prices can fall with the economy. Gold historically counters currency devaluation and aggressive stock market drops—with gold prices rising faster than anything else in such periods. For example, as the U.S. Dollar has devalued significantly since 2000, gold has climbed more than 400% in the same period of time.

Gold allows you to be your own bank
Gold provides financial freedom

All IRA assets MUST remain within the custody of a Trustee of the IRA. You may take a distribution of your assets in your IRA, which is a taxable event reported to the IRS.

A self-directed IRA is exactly like any other IRA, with one major difference. YOU get to choose where your IRA funds will be invested, rather than just accepting whatever the IRA Trustee or Custodian offers.

Money in an existing IRA can be moved to the new custodian by either transfer or rollover. A transfer does not require IRS reporting, and there are no restrictions on how often you can transfer funds.

No. All new contributions must be made in cash, but transfers and rollovers are allowed.

There are two annual fees; a custodial fee and a metals storage fee. Call your ICA Advisor for the current fee structure.

Yes, distributions “in-kind” are permitted; however, you will have to pay shipping in the case of delivery as well as ordinary income tax for the year in which they were received.

The trustees we partner with are proven, trusted, and COMEX approved. The metals are insured and remain locked in the safest possible environment, and every one of your ounces is allocated.

Yes. At some point in the future, you may choose to take profits on your precious metals holdings and transfer them into stocks, bonds, CDs or any other type of investment that is allowed in IRAs.

Precious metals investing and retirement go hand-in-hand.

Pensions, incomes, and cost of living adjustments to Social Security are falling far behind the actual cost of living. Meanwhile gold keeps pace, and often outperforms, the cost of living year over year. Having the ability to sell physical gold for additional income will allow you to pay for the goods and services whose prices have risen, but have risen less than gold’s price. Therefore, instead of fixating on a certain number of depreciating dollars in a bank account, or stock and bond portfolio, focus on accumulating ounces of gold to secure your retirement. Physical gold will provide guaranteed income in a way that counters currency depreciation and stock market volatility.

Want more than protection? Compound your ounces!

Investors want potential. They want to put their trust (and their money) in a proven system that will compound their investment AND ensure that the money is there when they need it.We’re happy to report that this system exists. At ICA, it’s affectionately known as the “Ratio Trading Strategy,” and it begins by asking one simple question:

How many ounces of silver does it cost to buy an ounce of gold?

Although the prices of the precious metals usually move in the same direction (up or down), they move at different speeds. Over time, one of the metals will be trading at a significant discount to the others. By trading one for another, an investor can move out of an overvalued metal and into an undervalued one with ease and safety. In just a few trades, a portfolio can be abundantly enhanced. The strategy is perfect for the conservative, long-term precious metals investor. While most trading “tricks” involve jumping in and out of markets and trying to hit every top and bottom, this strategy is quite different.
