We have an outstanding team and are experiencing tremendous growth across all product lines, but we are especially seeing a surge of interest in our precious metals IRA products.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) March 29, 2017
For the second year in a row, GSI Exchange, a leading online precious metals dealer specializing in gold and silver coins and bullion, has been selected a finalist for the annual Platts Global Metals Awards, which recognizes exemplary accomplishments in the metals industry in 15 categories.
Based in Calabasas, California, GSI Exchange joins a prestigious list of executives and companies from 18 countries that have been selected as finalists among over 100 nominations. An independent panel of international experts, whose background and experience include regulation, corporate leadership, trading and technology, will determine the award winners on May 18, 2017 at the Marriott Grosvenor Square in London.
“We are honored to be recognized as a Finalist in the Financial Metals Service Provider of the Year category,” said Anthony Allen Anderson, Senior Partner at GSI Exchange, “being selected alongside Citi, CME Group and the London Exchange is a accomplishment in itself. We have an outstanding team and are experiencing tremendous growth across all product lines, but we are especially seeing a surge of interest in our precious metals IRA products.”
Investing in gold or other precious metals (with IRA funds) is permitted within certain limits set forth by the Internal Revenue Service, but usually involves the establishment of an IRA account at a dedicated financial institution or depository, such as a self-directed IRA (SDIRA). A gold IRA or silver IRA often gives the account owner more flexibility and control than a traditional IRA.
Gold has been a symbol of wealth for centuries. Gold is a high-quality, liquid asset that can be used to protect global purchasing power, reduce portfolio volatility and minimize losses during periods of financial and economic crisis. Investors recognize gold’s lack of correlation with other assets to diversify their portfolios and hedge against currency risk. In 2016, gold returned approximately 8.6% and as of March 26, 2017 gold has returned 8.8% year to date.
The recent outperformance of gold is contributing to a wave of media attention and investor interest in advance of the Platts Global Metals Awards ceremony.
“We are very excited to return to the Awards as a Finalist again this year and meet and mingle with our friends and fellow Finalists,” says Anderson, “2017 is off to a great start!”
