Precious metals are increasingly finding their way into the investment portfolios of people across all income groups. Be it to preserve wealth for retirement or posterity, or to maximize short-term returns, investments in gold and silver prove to be more rewarding – if not lucrative – when compared to currency-based assets. For first-time investors, finding the right exquisite metals company that offers the best of products, guidance and customer service, is the key to explore this new alternative.
Regal Assets (RA) is one such reputed company, highly rated by clients and industry watchdogs. This, however, does not mean that investors should blindly base their decisions on such ratings. The company continues to stay ahead of the pack in almost all gold IRA reviews, until date. Let’s take a look at the firm, and its products and services to see if it lives up to the hype.
About Regal Assets
Based in Burbank, this rare metals company is backed by over five decades of industry experience. Staffed with industry experts who are familiar with the expensive metals markets, and featuring an array of products, the company continues to extend valuable support to investors looking to explore costly metals investment opportunities. The company has also been prominently featured on several magazines as well as the 2014 Investment Guide for Forbes, bagging the #20 rank for financial services in USA by the Inc. Magazine. The company is both well known and well established.
Customers get to choose an investment option that best matches their financial goals, with the necessary expert guidance. A range of pre-defined asset portfolios of different values, an extensive collection of proof coins, bullion bars, as well as precious metal IRAs are being offered. While minimum investment amount for expensive metal IRAs are set at $10,000, small investors can settle for cash deals at $5,000.
The wide range of investment options cater to both small and bulk investors. Investment portfolios ranging from $5,000 to $250,000+ appeal to short-term, long-term, as well as one-time investors.
Delivery and Storage
The company has one of the fastest delivery processes that service cash deals within 7 days of funding of the account. Customers can trace their orders using a tracking number, and the metals are fully insured, with RA taking full responsibility for the shipment till it is safely delivered at the destination. RA even goes the extra mile to compensate clients for delays in 7-day delivery guarantee with a 1 oz. Silver American Eagle.
Storage needs of rare metals IRAs are serviced by Brinks, where metals against each account are held in a segregated storage space for gold and silver without any additional charges. The 7-day delivery schedule holds good for IRAs too, once the account is funded and the prices are locked. It is worth noting that competitor delivery schedules may extend to even 30 or 90 days.
While product pricing across competitors is usually quite competitive, it is the fee structure associated with precious metal IRAs that could prove expensive in the long run.
Regal Assets stands apart from other rare metal companies by offering a flat fee for expensive metal IRAs, which comprises the administration and storage fees. With $100 admin fees and $150 storage fees, a flat annual fee of $250 is a money-saver, given the fact that the IRA fees from competitors are scalable, and segregated storage usually comes at an additional cost. These scalable fees often vary based on the account value.
RA also buys back all precious metals at over the spot price, making it effortless for investors to make timely profits with expert help.
Additionally, account setup is free of cost, IRA rollovers are not charged (conditionally), and all fees are waived for the first year. That’s a total savings of over $500! The IRA fee structure definitely is beneficial!
Apart from offering the fastest shipping facilities, RA also prides itself on prompt account setup. Investment accounts are up and active within 24 hours of request, ready for the first precious metals transaction. Fund transfer requests from a specific custodian are serviced within 48 hours. Liquidating valuable metal assets is also easier with RA and can be done in 2 days time.
All documentation and transactions at RA are digitized to save on time, as well as make it easier for clients to complete the process with minimum hassles.
Expert services, round-the-clock support from a personal investment advisor, and extensive information featured on their website, make it more comfortable and reassuring for investors looking for secure investment options.
They are reputable for “No Pressure” account staffs with a mission of ‘guide, advise and serve’. Hence you will not experience any pushy, aggressive or high pressure sales approach when dealing with them.
You can also request a free gold IRA rollover kit from them, which includes an investment guide issued on Forbes Magazine(time limited) plus an award winning documentary DVD that reveals ‘The Hidden Secrets of the Fed’.
Accreditation and Ratings
The firm enjoys an A+ rating from Better Business Bureau, an “AAA” from the Business Consumer Alliance, and a 5-Star at TrustLink, from over 900+ reviews. No complaints are recorded in the recent past.
RA also works with Professional Coin Grading Service, Certified Coin Exchange, Numismatic Conservation Service and other trade groups to ensure the authenticity of their collectible and rare coins.
