American IRA Explains Precious Metal IRAs

CHARLOTTE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / July 23, 2020 / How might investors turn to precious metals for their retirement plan? And what is a Precious Metal IRA? These were some of the questions recently answered at a post by American IRA, a Self-Directed IRA administration firm located in Asheville, NC. At their blog, American IRA detailed how investors might turn to precious metals to stabilize their retirement portfolio. The post also explained how owning precious metals within a Self-Directed IRA would work.

A Self-Directed IRA, the post explained, allows investors the ability to hold non-traditional retirement assets within a retirement account. That includes precious metals, but also extends to other assets such as real estate, tax liens, and even private stock. Through self-directing their IRA, investors could hold these nontraditional assets as retirement assets, which in turn gives these investors the tax protections of the usual IRA accounts, such as a Roth IRA or Traditional IRA.

Using this arrangement, an investor could invest in precious metals. As the post notes, investors often turn to precious metals because of the stability they can bring to a portfolio. As a unique asset class, precious metals allow investors to diversify out of the stock market. Rather than holding 100% of their funds within the stock market, an investor could have a broader range of risks in a retirement portfolio. If, for example, the value of the dollar was to suddenly plummet, investors with higher holdings in gold and silver would stand to hold on too much more of the value of their portfolio.

“Precious metals aren’t just a passing fad,” noted Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. “We’re talking about investments and wealth vehicles that have been around for thousands of years. This is why investors are interested in Precious Metal IRAs-they want to utilize that kind of stability within their retirement portfolio.”

The post also went into detail as to how an investor can work out the logistics of owning gold and silver as retirement assets. For more information, visit the post at or call American IRA directly by dialing 866-7500-IRA.
