Your Precious Metals IRA
Diversifying a Portfolio with Gold
Many individuals are funding a self-directed IRA with gold, silver, and platinum bullion bars and coins. Diversifying your investment portfolio with precious metals is a smart way to balance and improve the overall performance of your retirement portfolio. Paper denominated assets like those found in traditional and Roth IRAs and 401Ks lose value when the U.S. dollar devaluates, as it has been recently. Adding a percentage of gold, silver or platinum in a new precious metal IRA can compensate for paper losses.
For generations people have valued precious metals as a buffer against financial instability and inflation. Gold for instance, has an intrinsic value everywhere in the world and a unique potential for appreciation over time. Historic trends show that precious metal values do not closely correlate to the market changes that dramatically impact other assets. Precious metals can help bolster your IRA in the face of unpredictable events and counteract the losses in your paper-denominated assets.
