Diversification helps smoothout the volatility within investment holdings, with the goal being more stable, reliable returns over time. Simply hedging among different stock investments over time isn’t enough, as millions of Americans learned when their retirement investments evaporated as a result of the financial and economic crises beginning in 2008. Though we all hope for a swift and sustained recovery, a prudent investor must keep in mind the remaining threats to paper assets: massive government debt at home and abroad, inflation, quantitative easing, the weakening U.S. dollar and geopolitical tensions among others.
To diversify within the tangible assets category, distribution across three investment sectors is advised. This distribution is the most profitable in the long term as each asset class comes with its own financial benefits. Different coin types can serve short, medium and long-term holding strategies to maximize security.
In light of the recent crises, precious metals have performed remarkably well. Experts predict continued strength in the years to come. At Endeavor, we help our clients to focus on short, medium, and long term strategies inside of their metals portfolios so that, regardless of what happens, you’re prepared.
Precious metals are the safe haven asset of choice for individuals, institutions and governments alike. The attributes that make precious metals a safe investment naturally extend to a Precious Metals IRA, in which real, physical metals are held in your account. Unlike paper assets, which may become devalued in a future crisis, the value of precious metals can never fall to zero. Nothing brings peace of mind like knowing your retirement assets are stored in a fortified bank vault. We offer full depository services through our affiliated partner.
Only a self-directed IRA allows you to make every decision about your account assets, allocation and redistribution, while also giving you important tax advantages. When taking a distribution you can choose to take physical delivery of your metals or to sell and accept cash funds.
Silver’s supply and demand drivers are unique because of its many diverse applications as a key industrial metal. These applications make reclamation of the metal difficult and limit its availability. Some experts believe pressures on available supplies may fuel massive increases in silver prices in the coming years. Platinum is the considered the most precious of the precious metals. It is nearly 15 times more scarce than gold and is in strong industrial demand, primarily in automobile catalytic converters and industrial pollution control systems. There are no known stockpiles of platinum and as a result it is subject to intensive upward volatility over supply concerns. Also, platinum values may respond positively to healthy world economies. Platinum is a solid asset with a great upside potential, yet we cannot simply decide which type of precious metal is right for your portfolio.
