Gold & Silver

Gold & Silver IRA Investing is Easy!

Financial professionals everywhere agree that asset diversification is the key to success. A self directed IRA can buy gold and silver as long as the purchased assets meet the IRS requirements. IRAs cannot invest in collectibles (including collectible coins). Precious metals add diversity to retirement portfolios. They hedge against market cycles and inflation.

“The tax laws in the alternative asset class are not only complicated but fluid. There is absolutely no way to run my global metals operation and keep track of all the tax code changes. This is why I refer my clients to the qualified staff at Midland.”
