Pros

1. Track Record

The company prides itself on its industry track record and with good reason – it’s pretty much spotless. Simply search Google and other search engines and you will find nothing but praise and positive reviews with no complaints. Among non-biased third party sites Regal Assets has received the highest ratings among the big three – A+ from the Better Business Bureau, AAA from the Business Consumer Alliance and 5 Stars from TrustLink.

Regal Assets also works with Certified Coin Exchange, Professional Coin Grading Service, Numismatic Conservation Service as well as other trade groups to ensure the authenticity of their collectible and rare coins.
 
2. Response Time

Regal Assets prides itself on setting up your account quickly. Within 24 hours of request, investment accounts are up, active and ready for your first precious metal transaction. Within 48 hours your fund transfer request from a specific custodian is serviced. If you wish to liquidate assets, this can be done in 2 days time.

Regal Assets digitizes all documentation and transactions to save on time and to make it easier for clients to complete the process with minimal aggravations.
 
3. Delivery Time

The company is one of the fastest when it comes to delivering your precious metals. In fact they guarantee a 7 day delivery and if they are late, you will receive a 1oz Silver American Eagle as compensation. Customers can trace their orders using tracking numbers and every order is insured. Many of their competitors take 15 to 30 days, and some even longer, to deliver the precious metals.
 
4. Segregated Storage

The storage of precious metals is serviced by Brinks. Unlike the majority of their competitors, Regal Assets provides segregated storage for its clients without any additional cost to the client. This means that the investor’s bullion, coins and bars are stored in separate storage compartments, not mixed in with the assets of other clients.

While other companies offer segregated storage, this feature usually comes with a high additional charge which is usually added to the annual storage fees. Currently the company’s annual storage is $150 with the industry average being $250 or more.
 
5. Flat Fee Pricing

Regal Assets does not charge a setup fee. The company charges a flat annual $100 admin fee and $150 storage fee regardless of one’s account size. Many of their competitors charge a scalable fee – that is – the larger the value of the account the greater the fee.

Currently Regal Assets waives the first year fees for new accounts.

Regal Assets also buys back all precious metals at over the spot price. This makes it easy for investors to make timely profits with expert help from one of the company’s specialists.
 
6. Customer Service

Regal Assets offers expert and round the clock customer service for their clients. In addition they have a website that contains extensive information. Together this gives clients a higher comfort level when looking to invest their retirement portfolios.

The company is well-known for their “No Pressure” account staff that follows the credo of “Guide, Advise and Serve.” This means when you contact Regal Assets you will not experience pushy, aggressive or high pressure tactics when dealing with their representatives.

If you’re seeking to rollover your IRA you can request a free gold IRA rollover kit, which includes an investment guide issued on Forbes magazine and a DVD containing an award winning documentary entitled, “The Hidden Secrets of the Fed.”
 
7. Rollover Your IRA – 4 Easy Steps

Step #1 – Complete the account setup form on their website. Within the same business day you will receive the necessary IRA documents via email, which you need to fill out.

Step #2 – Within 24 hours of Regal Assets receiving the signed account setup form, your new IRA account will be opened and you will be notified by email of your new IRA account number. Next, via email you will be sent documents for the transfer request which will also be submitted electronically. Once the IRA transfer request is received by the IRA department of Regal Assets, they will contact your present custodian on your behalf. They will arrange the movement of funds to your new IRA.

Step #3 – During each step of the process you will be notified by phone or email by a specialist from Regal Assets. They are currently the only company that notifies according to each step of the process. Once the funds are accessible in the new IRA account, your assigned account executive will contact and inform you of the available options for the purchase of precious metals. The account representative will find out from you the type of precious metals that need to be purchased and simultaneously the prices are confirmed.

Step #4 – Once your precious metal prices are locked, your account is funded. Your assets are then shipped to Brinks within 7 days. Once your precious metals are received by Brinks you will be notified and you will be able to view your precious metals online.

This entire process can also be viewed online.
