While a number of Americans are using a defined contribution plan, such as a 401(k), to save for retirement, more than half — 55% — feel they’ve tucked away less than they should have, according to a survey conducted by  .

To prepare for future financial needs, some — such as U.S. Money Reserve client Robert E. — are opting to add physical precious metals assets to their portfolio via self-directed individual retirement accounts.

In one of the U.S. Money Reserve reviews posted on the Better Business Bureau  , Robert thanks the company for helping him incorporate precious metals into his financial strategy.

“Having someone watch over what is going on and helping me to diversify my portfolio is priceless,” he says. “[It] makes me sleep comfortably knowing I was able to lock in my life savings.”

Other U.S. Money Reserve reviews describe the company’s Account Executives, who provide portfolio holders with information and precious metals purchasing assistance, as “very professional and courteous” and “very easy to do business with.”

U.S. Money Reserve — which is led by company President Philip N. Diehl, who served as the 35th Director of the U.S. Mint — has helped portfolio owners establish personalized diversification plans for the past 22 years.

In addition to offering exclusive reports, videos, and other free resources on its website, U.S. Money Reserve can assist you with obtaining physical precious metals assets for an IRA — and will also arrange for those to be delivered to a secure depository, as required by the Internal Revenue Service.
