April 5 “Wealth Protection Summit” in West Palm Beach Educates Investors About Roth and Traditional Self-Directed IRAs, Their Differences & Benefits

Allegiance Gold COO Alex Ebkarian will discuss how to benefit from a diversified physical precious metals IRA that includes at least two hard assets

Even though tax day is around the corner, it’s never too late – or too early – to consider a self-directed IRA that includes physical precious metals like gold and silver, since there are various benefits to investors not available in IRAs containing only paper-backed assets.

The reasons to set up a self-directed IRA, plus what makes a Roth self-directed IRA different from a traditional one, will be hot topics at the free April 5 Wealth Protection Summit taking place at the Hilton West Palm Beach, the season’s must-attend financial event for anyone interested in learning how to diversify their portfolios with physical precious metals, so they can protect their retirement as well as grow their wealth. It is hosted by Boca Raton resident Eric Bolling of Newsmax’s “The Balance” and by physical precious metals dealer Allegiance Gold, which has offices in Ft. Lauderdale and Los Angeles.

“You can purchase gold and silver bars, coins, or proofs in  a self-directed IRA, but they must conform to certain purity standards, and be produced by accredited refiners to be eligible,” says Alex Ebkarian, COO and Co-Founder of Allegiance Gold, which ranks 749th in Inc. 5000’s 2023 list of the fastest-growing, privately-held, for-profit domestic companies. “And your self-directed IRA must be with a registered IRA custodian specializing in physical precious metals.”

“We will also cover the pros and cons of buying gold and silver ETFs versus the physical precious metals for an IRA – a frequently asked question by investors,” says Ebkarian, whose precious metals expertise has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Investors Business Daily, U.S. News & World Report, and more. 

He will also discuss timely geopolitical and economic factors that will keep the price of gold high for the near and long term, and why the present is an important time for investing in precious metals. Investors will receive an exclusive preview of Allegiance Gold’s new premium gold and silver coins, which are eligible for self-directed IRAs and 401(k) rollover accounts.

The event takes place April 5, from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the Hilton West Palm Beach, 600 Okeechobee Blvd.  RSVP at or (844) 790-9191. Free valet parking, light fare and refreshments.
