Important Things to Know

New Direction Trust Company does not recommend or endorse any particular investment or asset provider. Precious metals investors can manage their plan investment business directly with the dealer or platform of their choosing. As such, it is the responsibility of account holders to perform as much due diligence as they see fit on their asset providers. We encourage self-directed investors to weigh pertinent factors such as delivery time, price, and fees when making investment decisions.

The IRS allows tax-sheltered plans to invest in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. Unlike most IRA custodians, who only allow investments in mutual funds or ETFs backed by precious metals, New Direction Trust Company allows direct or allocated ownership of physical bullion and certain coins.

Your IRA or HSA-owned precious metals will be stored at your chosen depository (a separate annual storage fee will apply). New Direction Trust Company has developed relationships with depositories throughout the country and across the world for you to choose from. Most online platforms include storage as part of their service offerings.

If you wish to distribute your assets in kind (withdraw the metals themselves), contact our office to initiate the process and arrange shipment.
