SELF-DIRECTED IRA ACCOUNTS

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) states IRA physical metals cannot be stored at home and must be stored in an approved facility such as the depositories within the IDS Group. Furthermore, investors who have physical metals in their self-directed IRA accounts must also work with an IRA custodian or trustee. The IRA custodian company will have established precious metals depository relationships and provide their investors with various storage options choices. Self-directed IRA investors appreciate IDS Groups’ security, segregation of metals, speed and affordable storage fees.

International Depository Services in Delaware and Texas have relationships with the most elite, service-oriented IRA administrators and trust companies. These relationships allow IRA account holders to select the administrator who best suits their needs.

As part of governmental regulations, self-directed precious metal IRAs need to have a trust company or administrator who assists in setting up the account, executes your investments according to your directions and handles the required IRS reporting for assets held in custody at the precious metals depository.

IRA Custodians benefit by having a relationship with IDS Group because of the competitive fees, comprehensive reporting, annual or anniversary date invoicing, fully insured asset custody and much more.  


The IDS Group is always willing to consider adding new administrators and trustees to our select group of approved companies. Interested IRA administrators, custodians and trustees should contact IDS Group for more information.
