Opening a personal account on ASI Precious Metals Direct allows you to have an account solely in your name or jointly with a spouse or significant other.

Never before has a precious metals IRA been easier. Gone are the multitudes of paperwork simply to make a purchase. Setting up an IRA is similar to our other account types. However, this account has a one-time set up fee of $25, similar to other IRA programs. You will pay a $100 annual fee to our custodian, Millennium Trust Company, to maintain your account each year.

Once you are set up, you truly have a self-directed precious metals IRA. You are able to buy, sell, and transfer funds with a click of a button, no tedious forms or processing fees required.

*Only available in New York, Salt Lake City, and Zurich.





While regulations can change from state to state, an UTMA (Universal Transfer to Minors Act) account is an option for you on ASI Precious Metals Direct. This account can be opened for free and is a way to gift to your children, grandchildren, or other beneficiaries.

You can give the gift of stability and security down the line through the domestic and international storage of metals, or through our Wealth Accumulation Plan—incremental purchases of precious metals over time. It is never too early to start saving for a child’s future, and UTMA is a great way to gift precious metals to them.

These accounts are a flexible way to add stability to the long-term planning of your business and require minimal documentation to get started.




The Wealth Accumulation Plan (WAP) is our newest addition to the ASI Precious Metals Direct platform. You can dollar cost average into the market and add monthly contributions of metals to your plan. You have the option to set the program to which metals you want to buy and how much you want to buy each month.

The metals are purchased at the same time every month, per your instructions, and will draw directly from your bank account to make your purchase if needed. You can also switch the program to ‘off’ if you don’t want to purchase metals that month, and you can turn it back on when ready. You can use the WAP in a Personal, Trust, Business Entity, and UTMA accounts.
