More and more people are discovering this easy way to diversification!
You can now turn your existing paper assets (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) into actual gold and silver of the highest purity. Additionally, you can now receive the same preferential tax benefits as stocks or bonds, by rolling over all or part of an existing retirement account into an IBX Precious Metals IRA.
Protect Your IRA with Gold and Silver
Making precious metals a part of your IRA is a great way to diversify and protect your retirement portfolio. Precious metals are recession-proof investments that are historically proven hedges against negative economic conditions like inflation, war, housing bubbles and taxation. With an IBX Precious Metals IRA, it is now possible to safeguard your IRA and your golden years, while receiving the long-term value of mankind’s ultimate standard of wealth.
Why Are Precious Metals IRAs Gaining In Popularity?
- Gold is a tangible asset with a value that has no counter-party or credit risk.
- Gold stored at IRS-approved depositories is fully insured.
- Gold will never go out of business or rely on decisions of a Company’s officers.
- Gold has equaled wealth for thousands of years and has outlasted the world’s currencies.
- Gold can be readily converted into cash when needed because it is a global currency.
What is a Precious Metals IRA?
An IBX Precious Metals IRA account functions in the same exact capacity as your current IRA accounts, only instead of holding paper assets you will now be able to hold physical Gold, Silver, Platinum or Palladium coins and bars. Many of our clients believe Gold is a long-term hedge against inflation and wish to add it to their retirement portfolio.
Your Gold and Silver will be kept in an IRS-approved depository until you reach retirement, at which time, you can have your metals shipped directly to you or turned into cash. Once your IBX Precious Metals IRA is open, you still receive statements like you currently do; however, rather than being invested in mutual funds or stocks, you will be invested in actual precious metals that are stored in an IRS sanctioned, insured depository. The Precious Metals IRA Rollover process is IRS-approved and 100% tax-free.
How does it work?
You will be adding physical precious metals to your retirement portfolio. This is great news for anyone who’s looking to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with the tangible ownership of gold and precious metals. The steps to set-up your precious metals IRA are easy:
- Your IBX Precious Metals Specialist will help you set up a Precious Metals IRA account with a third party Custodian.
- We work with several of the largest and most respected 3rd party Custodians, which, together, have hundreds of thousands of satisfied clients and assets in excess of $20 billion under management.
- Your IBX Precious Metals Specialist will provide you with the proper forms to be filled out and answer all your questions.
- Once your account forms are completed and returned, IBX will “quarter back” the process and keep you apprised of progress until your new account is active.
- Upon notification that your account is active, your Precious Metals Specialist, or an IBX Senior Trader, will help you select and lock in a price for Gold and other precious metals assets you may want in your account.
- IBX then ships the physical metals to the designated Custodian for receipt into their depository vault.
- It’s that simple!
*And when it’s time to sell or take a distribution, IBX will be there helping you every step of the way!
