Usually people with a high net worth are typically more interested in investing in precious metals, because they are usually heavily invested in paper stocks and have to “hedge” their investments.
If they don’t protect themselves from stock market declines, they are exposing themselves to possible huge losses.
When it comes to deciding if it’s a good investment for you, the only answer I can give is “it depends”.
I don’t know your particular situation, or your net worth.
These are factors that determine if a gold backed IRA would be a good fit for you.
Other factors include your age, how heavily invested you are in other areas such as stocks and bonds, and what your overall financial health is.
You will find many sites that try to give exact advice whether you should invest or not, but to be 100% honest, it’s impossible to do that.
That determination has to be done on a case by case basis. So it’s extremely important to talk to someone that in in the industry and provides Precious Metal IRA.
