Setting up your Precious Metals IRA Investment

Choose between a Traditional IRA and a Roth IRA for your precious metal IRA. Traditional IRAs are funded with before-tax dollars and will be subject to taxation upon fund withdrawal. Roth IRA’s are funded with after-tax dollars and therefore are not subject to taxation when the funds are withdrawn. You may also choose to invest in both type funds

Your Self-Directed IRA account can buy precious metal, real estate, notes, limited partnerships, commercial paper and many other types of assets. The IRA Custodian maintains and updates all documentation relating to your IRA.

The following IRA Custodian will provide Metal IRAs:
