Rosland Capital (www.roslandcapital.com) offers a Free Gold IRA Investor’s Guide and a professional approach to converting existing IRA’s into a Gold IRA. In business since 2005, Rosland Capital may be best known for their television spokesperson, actor William Devane, who testifies to being a satisfied customer of Rosland Capital. We found the website of this company to posses one of the more user-friendly systems with which to interface, as many particularly older customers find it more intuitive, than others that seem to be more instruction-oriented.
In addition, the Rosland Capital website provides information regarding the incomparable hedging capabilities of precious metals in light of a falling dollar, oversold stock market, and spiraling national debt. As a reminder, the homepage of Rosland features a running total for the United States National Debt. It also provides real-time prices for precious metals, as well as the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Rosland Capital encourages investors to “Protect their wealth with gold and silver.” And while promoting its’ slogan of “No Gimmicks,” Senior Economist Jeffrey Nichols encourages investors to protect their portfolio’s with a 10% – 15% gold allocation.

Why Buy Gold? This section provides a list of reasons that gold is a necessary protection for every financial portfolio. It also provides a free Why Buy Gold brochure offer and access to historical charts for both gold and silver. This section also discusses the difference between physical precious metals ownership and a gold ETF (Exchange –Traded Fund). In particular, it discusses the great attraction and advantages of physical gold when compared to an ETF. “Many people buy gold because they want a tangible asset – something they can feel in their hand, something that will survive fire, flood, or financial meltdown. They know gold has held value and has been a trusted store of wealth since the earliest days of human civilization.
If people choose to store their gold with a depository or a bank, they want to know their gold has their name on it – that it’s theirs, owned by them, not fractionally, partially, notionally “allocated” to them. They want to know they can withdraw their gold, not as a check in payment for their ETF share, but as physical gold that they can pass on to the next generation, that will provide a hedge against uncertainty in these most uncertain times, and those to come. The want to know that whatever happens to the world economy, and the financial system, and any of the currencies now in use, including our own, they will still have an asset with real, tangible value.”

In spite of the positives previously addressed and a 4/5 TrustLink rating, Rosland Capital has a higher number of complaints with BBB and BCA, that prevent it from our Top 10 Inclusion. Additionally, any Rosland Capital reviews can’t be found with Trust Pilot, which we consider a critical customer-only source of customer satisfaction information.
The list of complaints lodged against Rosland Capital is greater than acceptable, but the top three most common areas of concern are 1) an unacceptably long product delivery time, 2) Television and radio commercials that are misleading (or very easy to misunderstand), and 3) a bait and switch type of scenario that sometimes ends up with products delivered that are not what the customer feels was originally represented. The “other side of that coin” is complaints having to do with buyback prices that are substantially lower than discussed at the time of the original sale.
Finally, Rosland advertises, produces and sells “Limited Edition Exclusive” gold and silver coins at a huge commission that purchasers could find great difficulty selling back at a profit, particularly during a precious metals rally. Bottom line, this type of coin simply doesn’t have the universal trust and liquidity of, for example, American Eagle gold and silver coins. Perhaps there can be a numismatic value attached, but getting an inflated price is entirely incumbent on the availability of a willing purchase market and there are never any such guarantees.
BBB: A+, 18 complaints in last 3 years
