Benefits of a registered precious metals account:

Stability in Volatile Markets: The stock market can be highly volatile, causing concerns for many investors. The stability of physical gold and silver, even during market downturns, can act as a buffer and offer a sense of security in uncertain times. As timeless assets, they have the potential to safeguard wealth, provide tax benefits, and act as a counterbalance to market volatility. 

Diverse Asset Classes: Including physical gold and silver in retirement plans enhances portfolio diversification. Precious metals act as distinct asset classes, having a low correlation with other assets such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. This can help mitigate risks associated with market fluctuations.

Tax Advantages: Eligible for the same tax benefits associated with Registered Accounts. Both TFSA and RRSP accounts provide unique tax advantages. Holding physical gold and silver within these accounts can help investors leverage tax-free growth and deferred taxation benefits. 

Full Ownership: You maintain full ownership of your physical metals at all times.

Secure Storage: All your metals are stored in a maximum storage facility approved by (IIROC) Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada.

Insurance: All your physical precious metals held within these registered accounts are fully insured.

Inventory Report: Your gold and silver are allocated and segregated, meaning, each client receives a titled, itemized inventory report complete with serial numbers.

Audit: Your stored gold and silver are available for a complete audit at any time.

Low storage fees (1%)

First Time Home Buyers: Offers the ability to benefit from the first-time home buyers’ incentives through the First-Time Home Buyers Savings Account.
