Rosland Capital Company Background

Rosland Capital (www.roslandcapital.com) is a precious metals dealer with a long time media presence. They deliver a professional and respected approach to converting traditional IRA’s to Precious Metals IRA’s. The company has been in the precious metals and coins business since 2005. These include traditional bullion classics like the Austria Gold Philharmonic and the American Gold and Silver Eagles.

Rosland is probably best remembered for its company spokesman actor William Devane who claims to be a committed customer of Rosland Capital. In this advertising tradition, the firm encourages its would-be investors to “Protect their wealth with gold and silver.” They have a slogan of “No Gimmicks” that appeals to many skeptical investors.

Their website is very effectively laid out to encourage you to contact their staff in order to transfer over to an IRA backed by gold. Among its easy to use interface are such prominent icons as My Cart, Checkout, and My Account. The site provides charts revealing the declining value of the dollar versus the increasing value and price of gold.The bottom of their site provides real-time values on both precious metals and stock market index the Dow Jones. It also ominously features the running total of the U.S. National Debt.

The company has  a set formula of precious metals they recommend for an investor’s account. Their Senior Economist Jeffrey Nichols states that from 10 to 15 percent of your assets should reside in tangible gold. Rosland offers you a completely free Gold/Precious Metals Investing Kit if you want to get more information.

Rosland Capital Products and Storage

Rosland Capital provides an extensive range of gold, silver, and platinum bullion bars, bullion coins, premium coins and “specialty” coins. It is important to note that not all of the coins they are selling are appropriate (or IRS-approved) for your Gold IRA. Some investors might like to see palladium bullion offerings as well. In that case, Rosland is not the best choice. Their site is also weak in not discussing their storage options or partners.

Despite its strongest reputation possible with both the BBB and the BCA, Rosland Capital has managed to garner a number of negative complains and reviews from its present and past customers. Most of the complains concern bait and switch tactics, lack of clear, transparent pricing, and delivery issues and costs. BCA’s complaints centered on partial refunds and “adjustments.” The BCA and BBB ultimately concluded that the company “gave proper consideration to complaints.” Rosland Capital has enjoyed its BBB-accreditation status since October of 2008. Trustlink had a number of complaints filed against Rosland Capital, yet the precious metals firm still managed to average a 3.9 out of 5 stars rating.

In Conclusion

Rosland Capital offers significant star power appeal in its long time actor spokesman who relates especially well to retirees and older investors. This has made their brand into the media powerhouse it is today. The company is strenuously suggesting that investors protect their assets by backing them partially with gold and silver (and platinum). The site is user friendly and offers good charts and comparisons of gold against the dollar. Their company recommendation to put from 10 percent to 15 percent of your assets into physical gold is sound and shared by a number of financial advisers and analysts. We like their educational focus provided in free investor’s guide kits, charts, and news on the industry that they deliver on their site.

Review All Gold IRA Companies Before You Buy

You should make certain that you review any Gold IRA company before you buy from any of them. Each firm uses their own fee structure and has their own policies on everything from storage to delivery. It is also advisable to keep in mind that gold and silver coin and bar prices routinely fluctuate along with underlying precious metals’ market conditions. This is a good reason for you to inquire about pricing and commissions. Finally, do not forget to take into consideration any appropriate consumer comments when you finalize your gold and other precious-metals IRA-related investment decision. If there are too many negative reviews showing up, it is often a sign of bad customer service or poor products.
