Company Overview

Founded in 2003, Birch Gold Group is devoted to helping clients protect their portfolios by diversifying with gold, silver, platinum and palladium. Birch is headquartered in Burbank, California.

Birch Gold has branded themselves as the ‘Precious Metal IRA Specialists’. As a leading dealer of precious metals in the United States, Birch Gold Group is committed to helping their clients discover how gold, silver and other precious metals can help protect their lifestyles in the face of current and coming economic instabilities. This commitment is one of numerous factors that separates them from other precious metals dealers and enables Birch to consistently help clients achieve their goals.

Established on moral and ethical principles, the company has an exceptional record of service and has maintained an A+ rating with the BBB. Birch Gold Group acknowledges its responsibility to each client on protecting and preserving their wealth.

What differentiates Birch Gold Group from its competitors is the company’s capacity to cut through the commotion in the news and make sense of how precious metals are affected by current events. Additionally, the precious metals specialists at Birch bring a significant amount of experience to the table. So whether a client is a first time modest investor or an experienced platinum investor, the knowledge that the company offers can be of tremendous benefit.

Our Opinion

For those who appreciate direct and helpful service, and who are looking for a personal touch and customization to their precious metals investment, Birch Gold Group is an excellent choice. Birch has an almost perfect track record with only 1 BBB complaint. Where Birch lacks is with a highly visible, quick online account setup. In todays digital world, it is ideal to have control of your application online, right from your phone, tablet or computer browser, 24 hours a day. Also, Birch could be more competitive in their fee structure as they only waive fees after $50,000.
