Precious Metals Investing
It is possible to use self-directed IRAs and other self-directed retirement accounts to invest in gold coins and bullion, as well as silver, other precious metals, and many other alternative assets.
Curious about how investing in a gold IRA works? Here’s how the precious metals investment process works at Equity Trust Company once you have opened your Equity Trust self-directed account (www.TrustETC.com/open-account).
A precious metals dealer will help guide you through the unique process of buying metals in your IRA.
(If you haven’t yet chosen an investment or precious metals dealer, visit our Investment District online marketplace for potential investment opportunities.)
Your precious metals dealer will help you submit a Direction of Investment form to purchase the metal(s) of your choice in your IRA.
Equity Trust Company remits funds according to your instructions. Your metals are then sent for safekeeping to a depository chosen by you and your dealer.
