BitIRA became founded back in 2017 to help investors find better solutions to opening Bitcoin IRA accounts. The Birch Gold Group founded this new company. As one of the premier companies that assists Americans in acquiring precious metals for IRA’s, the team boasts more than 100 years of solid experience in placing alternative assets into customer IRA’s. They pride themselves on being among the leading specialists in Digital IRA setups and management. The Business Consumer Alliance and the Better Business Bureau concur with this assessment, giving their highest ratings to the company.

BitIRA IRA Management Team

BitIRA is not as transparent as we would like on who makes up the membership of their management team. We do know that Andy Klein is an important person there. He serves as the Director of Strategic Planning at both BitIRA and the Birch Gold Group. He is also the Marketing Director for Birch Gold Group since 2011. Klein serves as a member on the Forbes Finance Council since 2018 as well. Before his time at Birch Gold and BitIRA, he worked as the U.S. Tax Shield Marketing Director.

BitIRA IRA Opening Process

BitIRA takes great pride in its in-house IRA department that does most of the “heavy lifting” in establishing your new Digital IRA. They have worked with all of the major retirement account custodians over the years, such as Merrill Lynch, Edward Jones, and Fidelity.

BitIRA also works with leading industry partners to assist it with custodial management, purchasing of assets, storage of the digital currencies, security needs, and real-time exchange trading. They use Preferred Trust Company as their strategic partner that serves as custodian for all of their clients.

BitIRA Bitcoin Storage

BitIRA claims to utilize the highest level security protocol in digital wallet services to contain your digital assets. They do something that most rivals do not, which is to offer a complete end to end insurance on all assets (kept in cold storage and offline).
