Are you uncertain about what future regulations in the U.S. may do to your retirement accounts? Some experts have warned of possible nationalization or even confiscation of your retirement funds. Or the forced investment of a portion of retirement funds in US Treasury bonds – in effect helping to bail out the US Government and its penchant for overspending (no doubt you have noticed).
Are you feeling at risk with your retirement funds being invested primarily in stocks or mutual funds, especially with markets at all-time highs? Perhaps you lean Libertarian and recognize that it’s your responsibility to ensure the financial well-being of you and your family, and not the government’s or someone on Wall Street? Or perhaps you simply want to know how to invest in other types of assets or have full control over the management and investing choices for your OWN retirement?
As your may already know, the U.S.’s ongoing money printing and debt creation since the Great Recession will eventually lead to the DEVALUATION of the U.S. Dollar, decreasing your purchasing power and making your money worth less – perhaps worth MUCH less. Since most retirement investments are denominated in U.S. Dollars, your future buying power is at risk if you are invested in only U.S. based investments.
Regardless of which party is in the White House or controlling Congress, most people realize that taxes will likely need to rise in order to cover the gaps in social security and medicare funding. And another economic collapse could slash the value of your mutual funds (where most retirement funds are invested) by as much as 30% to 50% overnight if what happened in 2008 is any indicator or what lies ahead.
