But why should I use a Gold IRA for retirement? At Red Rock Secured we believe the best investment strategy is to be diversified and protected. There is nothing as liquid and universally valued like precious metals or gold.
Gold and precious metals have historically been sought out for their safety. This may be attributed to the nature of how they have actually performed throughout many of the economic collapses and wars the world has endured over the years. When you invest in gold, you get access to a sort of financial “safe-haven” which acts as a potential hedge against inflation, deflation, and eroding paper currencies. It is also a recognized monetary asset class around the world. These are important qualities that you will have difficulty finding in other investments. We believe owning gold and other precious metals are for the long-term minded investor, the smart, market aware investor who knows diversification into precious metals is the best way to prepare for an uncertain world.
#1 Diversification: When you invest in gold, you gain powerful diversification and protection for your portfolio in times of crisis and uncertainty. Gold is a safe haven in times of market disturbances caused by varying factors such as economic, geopolitical and monetary events. Precious metals add valuable diversification and active return on investment.
#2 Personal Protection: Precious metals are certified, weighed, tested for purity, and issued by select and secure minting process. Gold is very difficult to counterfeit or copy. Precious metal fraud rarely happens and is non-existent when compared to all other types of fraud.
#3 Performance: Red Rock Secured was established in 2008. We’ve been analyzing gold’s performance in relation to the stock market and nothing is more consistent. We’ve witnessed virtually every market scenario, short of a world war or complete global armageddon. In short, a fact we continually point to; Gold has returned 331.78% vs DOW 126.16% & S&P 183.86%. The performance is undeniable.
#4 Liquidity: While it isn’t terrible to have some illiquid assets, it’s vital a portion of your wealth is vested in assets that you can sell quickly if needed. Some illiquid assets have the potential for long-term gains, but you have to be in a situation where you don’t need to sell them; you need to be able to hold onto them until the opportune moment when they have appreciated in value—and there’s someone willing to buy them. Liquid assets are those that you can access quickly. In some cases, even cash can be somewhat illiquid. Think about a certificate of deposit. With a CD, your money is tied up for a set period of time. You can’t access it early without sometimes incurring hefty penalties. When you look at your asset allocation, make sure you consider how you will access some of your wealth if needed.
