Consider weakening currencies, international tensions and natural disasters in a world where light-speed communications can turn any geopolitical murmur into a major shock to the financial system. Physical Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium provide protection against these major financial shocks by creating a strategically balanced investment portfolio. Precious Metals give your retirement portfolio the benefit of:
- A hedge for purchasing power When inflation devalues paper currency, the relative purchasing power of Gold and Silver generally remains intact.
- Insurance for other investments Precious Metals values generally move independently of stocks, bonds, and Treasury bills, making them a possible hedge against unstable markets and keeping your portfolio balanced.
A Precious Metals IRA is a Self-Directed IRA. You can invest in your choice of IRA-approved products. APMEX specialists are available to help you diversify your assets into a Precious Metals portfolio. Any profits from the sales of your investments can be tax deferred, just like any profits from any IRA, as long as you keep the proceeds from your sale with your custodian for reinvestment or transfer the proceeds to another IRA account.
