For those of you with existing 401Ks, IRAs, (with some allocation to metal or not), it’s an interesting way to take full control of those assets and add a layer of protection.
by Dr. Jeffrey Lewis, Silver-coin-investor:
Precious metals currently look like a no brainer investment in a world of market volatility, rehypothecation, massive bail ins and outs, and a growing number of templates for taking people’s retirement assets away.
Many are familiar with the option of keeping precious metals in an IRA. Those who understandably refuse to take the penalty for cashing out in order to take full personal possession now have the next best option and a way to get control of their metal.
A Historical Perspective
Self-Directed IRAs were first introduced in the United States in 1975, shortly after the inception of the IRA.
Soon thereafter, trust companies and custodians started allowing alternative asset classes such as real estate, foreign real estate, REITS, private equity, promissory notes, and certain precious metals to be held in self-directed IRAs.
