The Monex Gold IRA:
An Ideal Way to Add REAL Money to
Your Retirement Portfolio . . . and Your Future
Gold can be a powerful way to diversify your investment assets, and especially your retirement portfolio. For thousands of years, man has relied on gold as real wealth and as a ''safe-haven'' asset with attributes that simply cannot be matched by any other asset class.
Unlike most paper assets, gold held in physical form – pure gold bullion, and gold bullion coins produced by government mints – carries no counter-party risk. As such, when you hold physical gold you are not dependent on anyone else to deliver on their side of a contractual obligation (such as with a stock or bond, for example).
That makes physical gold an outstanding candidate for a long-term investment and retirement portfolio, a way to secure and protect your assets for the future. And now through Monex Deposit Company, you can add gold to your retirement assets in a way that will allow those assets to grow tax deferred – with a Monex Physical Gold IRA account.
Gold IRA Rollovers & Transfers
If you already have one or more IRA accounts, or movable funds in an employer retirement plan, you can transfer or "roll over" some or all of those assets into a Monex Gold IRA. A transfer occurs when IRA funds are moved at your request directly from one IRA to another, without your taking control or custody of the funds. A rollover, on the other hand, takes place when IRA funds are paid to you directly and you then redeposit those funds into another IRA within 60 calendar days of receipt or when a distribution from an employer retirement plan is made directly to your IRA by the plan administrator (a Direct Rollover).
Monex has specialized in gold IRA investing for well over two decades and is well-versed in structuring a gold IRA investment that will be right for you. Whether you need a gold IRA rollover, a gold IRA transfer, or want to open your first IRA account, Monex is ready and able to help. We've assisted thousands of investors with their gold IRA investment needs and will be pleased to assist you in that endeavor as well.
