Important Things to Know

New Direction Trust Company does not recommend or endorse any particular investment or asset provider. We allow our precious metals investors to conduct IRA business with the dealer of their choosing. As such, it is the responsibility of account holders to perform as much due diligence as they see fit on their dealer of choice. We encourage self-directed investors to weigh pertinent factors such as delivery time, price, and fees when making their investment decisions.
