The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank last week has many Americans [rightfully] worried about the safety of their retirement savings.

This week, Red Rock Secured CEO Sean Kelly spoke with Good Morning Washington to talk about the SVB collapse and the impacts it could have on American retirement savings accounts, the economy, and the U.S. dollar.

“If a bank failure leads to a broader financial crisis or a loss of confidence in the banking system, then investors may begin to sell off their assets, including the U.S. dollar,” Kelly said when asked if the SVB collapse could impact the U.S. dollar. “That could lead to a decrease in demand for the dollar, which in turn would cause its value to decline.”

And history shows that when the dollar goes down, the price of gold rises.

“Precious metals, particularly gold and silver, have been a popular hedge against inflation and uncertainty,” Kelly said. “They can’t be printed out of thin air like paper money. Historically, as 401(k) accounts, stocks, and cryptos plummet, gold rises. The weaker the dollar gets, the more it’s worth. Precious metals are safe-haven assets in times of economic crisis, and Morgan Stanley just came out predicting prices topping $2,200 this year alone in 2023.”

While inflation is an ongoing battle, Kelly warns that another major concern for investors is financial instability.

“Last Tuesday, this bank [SVB] was fine,” Kelly said. “Friday morning, it’s gone. This all happened within 48 hours. We have interest rates at historically high levels. We can no longer afford our home mortgages. We can no longer afford car payments…”

But that’s where Red Rock Secured is available to help…
