My hours of research have finally been rewarded. I’m pretty sure at this point that the gold company that I’m going to be dealing with will be Regal Assets. I’ve done my homework and I’m pretty sure at this point that my money will be well invested.
So why you ask have I set my sights on Regal Assets? Well, after doing a whole lot of research, the reason is so obvious to me: they are the best. What I mean by that is that they offer the best services to serve my specific needs.
They don’t have a whole lot of different exotic coins, but that’s not what I’m looking for. What I need is high purity gold that I can legally put into my retirement account. That’s it. As it turns out, that is just what Regal specializes in.
I have to say though that I had a hard time see past the many reviews of this company online. If you do what I did, you’ll see that the reports from people who have done business with them before is overwhelming positive. Suspiciously so.
I have a gut feeling that most of the websites out there are designed from the ground up to give fake praise to Regal by writing fake reviews. I also noticed that most of those sites have disclosures on them stating that they are “receiving compensation from the companies they recommend”. That sounds to me like getting paid to say good things about them.
But still, Regal Assets was getting good reviews from third party sites that obviously don’t receive compensation from them. Sites like Ripoffreport.com and the Better Business Bureau all had glowing customer reviews. But it’s not just that the reviews were positive, it’s that there was barely any negative ones to be found.
My call with them
What I did next was call a whole bunch of companies that I had read good things about and to be honest, most companies hire service reps that don’t seem to care about you unless you tell them that you’re holding 100k in your hand and that you’re looking to spend it in gold with them immediately.
This is something that Regal Assets seemed to avoid though and the service rep I spoke to (I think his name was Jason or something) was very polite and helpful. And he didn’t keep pushing me to know if I was going to be buying immediately or not. The experience was good.
On top of that what I learned is that all companies charge a fee to store your gold for you, because apparently the government won’t let you store the gold in your retirement account yourself without taxing the hell out of it. But the good thing about Regal is that they only charge something like 200 or 300 dollars per year as opposed to the percentage of total gold owned that most other companies charge. Given the amount I’m looking to invest, this is very advantageous for me.
Getting my papers in order
Now before I make a final purchase, I need to get some paperwork in order. It might take a few days or even a couple of weeks (you know how the IRS is) but I’ll get through it eventually. I do hope that it goes well. I’ll make sure to write up an update when the transaction goes through. ∞
