Open a Precious Metals IRA with the Hard Assets Alliance Today!

Added Security for Your “Golden Years”

Diversifying your retirement portfolio has never been easier.

The Hard Assets Alliance’s revolutionary process brings the custodian, bullion dealer, and multiple storage facilities together under one roof.

You get both the safety net of owning physical precious metals and the convenience of a user-friendly interface that lets you manage your IRA online.

1. Easy application

It takes only 5–10 minutes to complete the paperwork required to set up your precious metals IRA, whether it’s for domestic or international storage.

2. Quick approval

Approval of your IRA account takes 48 hours or less.

3. Simple funding

You can fund your precious metals IRA through a direct contribution, a transfer from another IRA, or a rollover from your 401(k), 403(b), or other similar retirement account. We will also assist you with an in-kind transfer from an existing precious metals IRA if you’re seeking a new relationship with superior online liquidity, multiple storage options, and better client service. Please call us for more information on this transfer process.

Open an IRA with the Hard Assets Alliance today and you will not pay a dime in storage fees until September 30, 2018. If you anticipate funding your account with at least $100,000, please contact our customer service team for a special offer at or 1-888-993-2207.

4. The right account for you

The Hard Assets Alliance offers four different types of IRA accounts:

Traditional IRA

Contributions are typically tax deductible. Limit: $5,500 per year. Any earnings distributed after the age of 59½ are tax deferred.

Roth IRA

Contributions generally come from taxed income (not tax deductible). However, any income generated within the Roth is not taxable.


The Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) IRA is a flexible option with higher contribution limits if you are self-employed or an owner in a corporation.


This IRA is set up similarly to a 401(k) and provides advantages for small businesses (under 100 employees) or self-employed individuals.

(We recommend consulting a tax professional to help you decide which plan is most advantageous for your personal circumstances.)

5. Offshore storage available

With the Hard Assets Alliance Precious Metals IRA, you can store your metal, fully allocated, in one of our ultra-secure vaults in the US or in Switzerland. The process to set up offshore storage is the same as domestic storage—no extra time, paperwork, or expense required!

6. IRS compliant

As required by Internal Revenue Code rules, the bullion coins or bars you buy are safely stored on behalf of your IRA in a fully insured, secured vault with a nationally recognized vaulting provider. You may take delivery of your precious metals anytime in lieu of a cash distribution through the online portal. Standard IRA distribution rules and age requirement for withdrawals apply.

7. Mistake-proof

We ensure that when you buy gold and silver for your IRA, you see only options approved for inclusion in IRAs. There’s no chance you will inadvertently veer into precious metals investments potentially triggering a taxable event.

8. You’re in control

Within the context of Internal Revenue Code rules, you have full control over which types of metals your IRA owns.

9. Tax-free transactions

You can buy and sell metals in your precious metals IRA without tax consequences and without having to report every transaction.

10. Maximum efficiency

Our streamlined process lets you manage your precious metals IRA easily. By simply logging into one account, you can buy, sell, and request delivery of metals 24 hours per day. Access to the Hard Assets Alliance dealer network ensures you will receive extremely competitive prices when you buy and when you’re ready to sell.
