Gold IRA Account

Gold has been used as a form of currency for centuries. It is an incredibly valuable metal and is often seen as a sign of wealth and prosperity.

In recent years, it has also become popular to hold gold in a retirement account – known as a Gold IRA Account. There are many different types of precious metals that can be held in a Gold IRA, but in this article, we will focus on four of the most popular: gold, silver, platinum, and palladium.

Each of these metals has unique properties that make it beneficial to hold in a retirement account. Let’s take a closer look at each one!

Gold

Gold has always been seen as a valuable metal, and for good reason. It is rare, durable, and has a long history of being used as currency. Gold is also non-corrosive, meaning it doesn’t rust or tarnish over time. This makes it a great choice for investors who want to hold onto their investment for the long term.

Gold can be bought in a variety of forms, including coins, bars, and rounds. Gold is the most popular precious metal to hold in a gold IRA company and is incredibly valuable. It is often seen as a sign of wealth and prosperity. Gold is also known for its durability, which makes it an ideal metal to hold in a retirement account. Gold is often used as a hedge against inflation. Ever since the U.S. government stopped minting gold coins, the price of gold has been on the rise.

Silver

Silver has a bit of a different history than gold. It has been used as currency, jewellery, and other decorative items for centuries. Silver is also a valuable metal, but it is not quite as rare as gold. This makes it a more affordable option for investors who want to hold precious metals in their retirement account. Silver can also be bought in coins, bars, and rounds.

In addition, silver is known for its industrial applications. It is used in a variety of industries, including electronics, solar energy, and water filtration. This makes it a good option for investors who are looking for exposure to different sectors. Silver is another popular precious metal to hold in a part of gold IRA – silver IRA, as it keeps its value during economic downturns. Keep in mind, however, that silver is more volatile than gold, so it may not be the best choice if you’re looking for stability in your retirement savings.

Platinum

Platinum is a very valuable precious metal and is often used in jewellery and other high-end products. Its history is a bit different from gold and silver, as it was only discovered in the 18th century. Platinum is rarer than gold, but not quite as rare as silver. This makes it a good option for investors who want to hold a precious metal that is less common than gold.

Platinum is kept in the same forms as gold and silver – coins, bars, and rounds. Platinum is also known for its industrial uses, as well as its value as a precious metal. It is often used as a hedge against inflation and economic downturns. Give it a try and protect your retirement savings from inflation and economic downturns by holding platinum in a platinum IRA.

Palladium

What is interesting about palladium is that it is not as well known as the other precious metals. Palladium is a white metal that is often used in jewellery and other high-end products. It is also used in a variety of industrial applications. Palladium is rarer than gold, silver, and platinum, making it a good choice for investors who want to hold a less common metal. Palladium can be bought in the same forms as gold and silver – coins, bars, and rounds.

When it comes to precious metals, palladium is often seen as a good option for investors who are looking for growth potential. This is because palladium is not as well known or understood as other metals, so it has more room to grow in value. Palladium is still a very valuable precious metal. It is also known for its industrial uses, as well as its value as a precious metal. Palladium is often used as a hedge against inflation and economic downturns.

Each metal has its own unique history and characteristics. When it comes to investing in precious metals, it is important to understand the benefits and risks associated with each option.

Published

By Aduragbemi Omiyale

Recently, shareholders of Sterling Bank Plc authorised the board of the company to transform its organizational structure into a holding firm to be known as Sterling Financial Holdings Company.

A holding company or Holdco is a company set up for the purpose of making and managing, for its own account, equity investment in two or more companies, being its subsidiaries, engaged in the provision of financial services, one of which must be a bank.

The Chief Executive of Sterling Bank, Mr Abubakar Suleiman, said with the new arrangement, shareholders would have value for their money as the company would have the opportunity to increase its income streams because of its involvement in new ventures.

He disclosed that the advantages of the newly formed holding company include value creation to maximise earnings through new businesses, agility to optimise for opportunities and adapt to a rapidly changing market, maximise current and future talent potential with opportunities within the group and subsidiaries to nurture and engage its wealth of young and innovative talent.

According to him, the holding company also affords Sterling another opportunity to leverage its successful HEART strategy, which has seen the bank make consolidated investments in the Health, Education, Agriculture, Renewable Energy and Transportation sectors, growing the company’s year-on-year profits to record highs despite strong economic headwinds.

With the adoption of a Holdco structure, Sterling now possesses the latitude to make inroads into other sectors within financial services, such as pensions, asset management, payment services, real estate, and different verticals, along with the current banking licenses held by the commercial and non-interest banking subsidiaries, Sterling Bank and The Alternative Bank.

In recent times, the bank has doubled down on digitisation with specialised products through the development and introduction of Specta, OneBank, I-invest, Gazelle and Omni X to fulfil the market’s needs for innovative retail and commercial banking solutions.

On his part, the Chairman of Sterling Bank, Mr Asue Ighodalo, said, “Following the implementation of the scheme, shareholders will exchange their shares in the Bank for shares in HoldCo in the same proportion as their current holdings in the Bank, which will be a regulated entity for CBN purposes.”

He added that the scheme would provide several benefits to the shareholders of the bank, some of which include facilitating diversification into other permissible business lines, thereby promoting growth and enhancing shareholder value and facilitating a consolidated financial strength of the group, which will improve access and ability to raise capital.

It was gathered that upon the final ratification by the regulators, the commercial banking subsidiary of the holding company, Sterling Bank; will continue to operate with its current name as a limited liability company, with shares transferred from the publicly traded company transferred to the newly formed Sterling Financial Holdings Company.
