Bring Balance To Your Portfolio With Physical Palladium IRA
Although many precious metals buyers have not paid proper attention to palladium, it is actually one of the best-performing commodities in the world today. It’s an extremely important industrial metal, with most of the demand coming from catalytic converters that help to reduce toxic automobile emissions. As emission standards have intensified globally, the demand for palladium skyrocketed. With a widening global supply deficit, palladium is also one of the scarcest metals on the planet and an excellent diversification asset that can help to strengthen your retirement portfolio. If you’re interested in investing in palladium to protect your future wealth, Capital Gold Group can help you to set up a Palladium IRA. Simply call our IRA experts for the easiest way to get started.
What Is A Palladium IRA Account?
Otherwise known as a Precious Metals IRA, a Palladium IRA is an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) that can be made up of coins and bullion. This type of account allows you to invest in precious metals, such as palladium, platinum, gold, and silver, as well as hold those metals for retirement. A Palladium-Backed IRA is a Self-Directed IRA that essentially enables you to diversify your portfolio while retaining the tax benefits associated with a regular IRA.
As the Palladium IRA owner, you’re able to purchase physical palladium and other IRS-approved metals. Your account is treated the same way as a traditional IRA but instead of holding paper assets, you have the ability to buy and own physical bullion coins or bars. However, unlike a regular IRA, you have more power and control over your investment decisions.
Here at Capital Gold Group, we believe diversification is the key to protecting your retirement against market shocks. With a Self-Directed IRA directly owning precious metals, you’ll reduce risk by bringing balance your portfolio. You just need to make sure that the coins or bars you choose meet specific fineness requirements. As a full-service precious metals company, we stock a wide selection of IRA-eligible precious metals including the American Palladium Eagle Coin, Canadian Palladium Maple Leaf and PAMP Suisse Palladium Bar to name just a few.
Palladium-Backed IRA Set-Up Fees
It costs around $250 to set up a Palladium-Backed IRA with Capital Gold Group. Here’s a summary of all the different fees involved in setting up your account:
- $25 one time set-up fee
- $100 insured palladium metals storage fee for the first year (accounts up to $250,000)
- $60 administrative fee
- $40 palladium purchase processing fee
- $25 wire fee for domestic investment purchase
There are no hidden fees with a Capital Gold Group Palladium IRA, which is just one of many reasons so many investors choose to work with us to rollover their existing IRAs. Whether you decide to deduct these costs from your transferred funds or make payment by check, debit card or credit card, all set-up fees must be paid to your new custodian, Strata Trust. An annual fee must be paid upfront upon opening the account.
You Can Make A Tax-Free Rollover From Your Existing IRA To A Palladium IRA
If you already own an IRA, 401k or retirement account, you may decide to roll it over to a Palladium-Backed IRA. A “rollover” is the process of moving funds from your old account into your new IRA. Although most IRAs can be rolled over, there are some account types that cannot, so feel free to contact Capital Gold Group to check if you’re eligible to apply for a rollover. We strongly recommend you also consult with your CPA or tax advisor to evaluate your existing IRA and determine whether a rollover to a Palladium IRA is the right option for you.
Our IRA specialists have extensive experience in rolling over accounts and can complete the process in just three simple steps:
- We start by establishing a new precious metals IRA in your name.
- Then, we help you to initiate a tax-free rollover to enable you to fund your new Palladium IRA with assets from your existing IRA.
- Finally, your funds are transferred to your new IRA and our experts provide you with the resources to choose the precious metals that best suit your financial goals.
Helpful Tips For Choosing The Right Palladium Company
At Capital Gold Group, we’re dedicated to being transparent in our communication with our clientele, but the same can’t be said for all precious metals firms. Sadly, there are scammers out there, as well as some companies that aren’t interested in building successful client relationships. So, how can you really be sure you’re selecting a good palladium company? Our CEO, Johnathan Rose has shared his top tips to help you make the right decision.
There are a number of things you need to question when looking for a palladium and precious metals company to do business with. As there are plenty of firms to choose between, it can be a bit overwhelming at first, but it shouldn’t be too tricky to pick the good from the bad. The first thing you must do is check whether the company is:
- An authorized dealer of the United States Mint
- A+ rated with Better Business Bureau
- Licensed, bonded and registered with the attorney general’s office
If they tick all three boxes, you can start to delve a little deeper. An essential part of the selection process is researching how many complaints the company has received. When doing your research, see how well those complaints were handled. If you find yourself reading mostly negative comments, move on and investigate a different firm. The other thing you must do is check the quality of their customer service. Make a few calls or send some messages and ask yourself, was the agent helpful and informative or more interested in making a sale? Consider looking elsewhere if you got a sales pitch, rather than answers to your questions.
PALLADIUM IRA FAQs
Surely It’s Better To Put Only Gold And Silver In My IRA, Isn’t It?
It’s definitely a good idea to invest in both gold and silver but they aren’t the only precious metals that can help to boost your retirement savings. Palladium and platinum are fantastic options too. One of the reasons many investors choose to place palladium in an IRA is because it offers added diversity to their portfolios. Just like platinum, palladium is extremely rare and should hold its value long after any financial crisis. However, palladium is relatively unknown to the wider investing community even though it has outperformed gold and silver in recent years.
There is also rising demand for palladium (and platinum) from the automotive industry because it is an essential material in catalytic converters. Demand also comes from dentists, jewelers and electronics manufacturers; however, there is a supply deficit in palladium. Declining supply and rising demand is forcing palladium prices higher and will continue to do so as demand grows which, of course, benefits investors along the way. So, even though it is the least known of the four precious metals, palladium is a sensible investment option that can diversify your portfolio and be used as an effective inflation hedge.
Am I Allowed To Add All Four Precious Metals To My Palladium-Backed IRA?
Yes, of course. It may be called a Palladium IRA but it is perfectly acceptable to include gold, silver and platinum as well. In order to place any of the four precious metals in your Palladium-Backed IRA, your physical investments must meet the following minimum fineness requirements:
- Palladium .9995
- Platinum .9995
- Gold .995
- Silver .999
Whether you prefer to invest in only palladium, two precious metals or all four, the choice is always yours.
HOW DOES A PALLADIUM-BACKED IRA DIFFER FROM MY CURRENT IRA?
The only real difference is that a Palladium-Backed IRA allows you to hold physical precious metals, whereas most IRAs do not. Most IRA plans are limited to paper assets, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds. With most Self-Directed IRAs backed by palladium, you’ll still get the same tax advantages and can choose to save on taxes either now or in the future. All profits are usually tax-deferred as well. One of the biggest advantages of a Palladium IRA over other standard IRAs is that you have the freedom and flexibility to purchase physical coins or bullion.
Can I Handle And Store The Physical Palladium And Metals That My IRA Owns?
All of the physical precious metals are owned by only you but must be stored in an IRS-approved depository and administered by a custodian. When you opt for a Palladium-Backed IRA from Capital Gold Group, your metals are stored in a safe and secure vault at the Delaware Depository. You will have access to your physical metals when you reach retirement age, which is 59½.
If you would prefer to handle and store your precious metals, you could open a different type of Self-Directed IRA known as a Home Storage IRA. The set-up process is slightly different for this type of account and you’ll need to establish an LLC so that you can become the trustee. With this particular account, you can also choose to store your metals at home. You can find out more about the Capital Gold Group Home Storage IRA on our website or by calling our IRA specialists.
Is It Possible To Transfer My Existing Retirement Account To A Palladium IRA?
It depends on the type of retirement account you already own. Having said that, most traditional IRAs, 401(k)s and retirement accounts can be transferred without incurring taxes or penalties. We refer to this process as a “rollover”, and it can be done relatively quickly. As some accounts cannot be rolled over, we suggest you call our IRA experts for guidance. We also recommend you speak with your CPA or tax advisor before agreeing to an IRA rollover.
Who Is Eligible For A Palladium IRA With Capital Gold Group?
Individuals under the age of 70½ and in regular employment can start a Palladium-Backed IRA with Capital Gold Group.
Will I Need A Custodian To Administer My Palladium-Backed IRA?
As your Palladium-Backed IRA is a Self-Directed IRA, you will need and IRS-approved custodian. You still have complete control over your investment choices. The main role of the custodian is to ensure your account complies with IRS rules and regulations. Capital Gold Group utilizes Self Directed IRA and Kingdom Trust as custodial administrators for your Palladium-Backed IRAs. Self-Directed IRA has provided administration and custody of alternative and traditional assets in IRAs for over 40 years, and Kingdom Trust is an industry Leader In Providing Alternative Investment Custodial Services.
When Can I Take Possession Of The Metals In My Palladium IRA?
You can take physical possession of your metals without incurring any penalties when you reach the age of 59½. Until that time, the coins and bars in your Palladium IRA are stored in a vault at Delaware Depository. All of your physical precious metals are secured with your name and account, meaning your IRA will always be the sole owner of the precious metals. If you would rather not wait until retirement age, you do have the option of a Home Storage IRA which enables you to store your metals at home. You can find out more about this on our Home Storage IRA page or by calling our IRA specialists.
In What Form Can I Receive My Distributions?
You have two choices. With a Capital Gold Group IRA, you can either receive distributions in the form of the physical precious metals in your account or we can help you convert and liquidate your physical assets into cash.
