Assemble Your Team

Once you have your investment strategy figured out, you will need to assemble your team to help you make and maintain your investments.
On top of your SDIRA provider, you will need a dealer and a depository. Check out each party's role below.

sdira-provider

Self-Directed IRA Provider

Self-Directed IRA providers like The Entrust Group handle the documentation to establish and fund accounts, and complete transactions for your SDIRA. They’re responsible for recordkeeping and ensuring that all necessary reports are submitted to the IRS to keep your account compliant.
precious-metals-dealer

Precious Metals Dealer

You will need to use a precious metals dealer to buy and sell the physical metals your SDIRA owns. When identifying a dealer, make sure to do your due diligence and work with dealers who understand the purchase of precious metals with retirement funds.

precious-metals-depository

Precious Metals Depository

Depositories store your precious metals to preserve the metals’ tax-advantaged status. The IRS does not allow you to take physical possession of the metals your SDIRA owns. The Entrust Group works with IRS-approved depositories.
