Offering state-of-the-art precious metals solutions across the globe, International Depository Services Group announced on Thursday, September 12 a new bullion storage partnership with Equity Trust Company, a leading custodian of self-directed Individual Retirement Accounts, also known as IRAs.
While Equity Trust is expanding its presence in the market, this is only the second time in the past 10 years that they have added an additional bullion storage option for their customers. International Depository Services Group was recognized for their experience in the precious metals market and high standard of customer care. Each International Depository Services Group location specializes in fully-segregated storage of physical gold, silver, platinum, and other metals.
Privately owned by Dallas-based precious metals wholesaler Dillon Gage, International Depository Services Group consists of three depositories that offer an array of custody and logistic services that meet the unique needs of the physical precious metals industry. The depositories are IDS of Delaware, IDS of Texas and IDS of Canada. International Depository Services Group protects, insures and stores physical gold, silver, platinum and palladium products, rare and certified coins, as well as wallets containing cryptocurrency assets such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, and Ripple.
Currently, IDS of Delaware and IDS of Texas are the two approved locations for Equity Trust’s IRA clients. The depositories within the International Depository Services Group are custom-built and offer secure, fully-segregated storage. All assets stored at International Depository Services Group locations are insured with Lloyd’s of London – a global leader of specialized asset insurance. Additionally, each location is managed by knowledgeable professionals with decades of bullion storage experience and extensive training in the rigorous inventory and reporting requirements associated with self-directed precious metals IRA accounts.
“As one of the only depository groups in the nation that offers fully-segregated storage, we are honored to serve Equity Trust’s IRA investors,” said Terry Hanlon, president of Dillon Gage. “Our companies complement one another as we both value technological innovation, customer-centric solutions, and outstanding customer service. Working together means that Equity Trust’s IRA investors now have additional choices when it comes to protecting and storing their hard-earned retirement assets.”
“We are pleased to add a top precious metals depository to our already leading deposit and storage capabilities – continuing our practice of offering a variety of best-in-class solutions to our customers,” said Equity Trust Chief Executive Officer George Sullivan.
Each International Depository Services location features a UL-rated, multi-redundant security system monitored 24/7 in real time by security specialists. Additionally, each site adheres to stringent “dual control” policies, including daily activity and full monthly audits of all precious metals inventory stored at the facilities. An added security measure is each location has the highest UL-rated, Class III precious metals vault.
Since 2010, International Depository Services Group has offered IRA trustees a genuinely custom approach for self-directed precious metals IRA storage with personalized custodial services, custom depository reporting solutions and inventory management creating a seamless customer experience.
