Protect your retirement savings with a Physical Precious Metals RRSP.

Diversifying your registered accounts is the smart thing to do. Get started today.

How it works:

First Step: Open an online account by following this link to Questrade. It takes only a minute to create a profile with a user name and password.

  • Select Self-directed, then click on Registered and TFSA and select the type of account you want to open. The bullion program is a USD program. Please set up your account in either Trade Currency or USD. Trade currency allows you to deposit CAD and have your cash balance remain in CAD while still allowing bullion trades to settle in USD.
  • Complete the remainder of the application, fill in the Silver Gold Bull dealer authorization form and send it along with your original documents to Questrade.
  • Fund your account. Please note that transfers from other financial institutions often take weeks to complete.

Second Step: Contact Silver Gold Bull and provide us with your account number.

Third Step: Purchase your precious metals and have them placed in fully allocated and segregated storage.

  • Purchases may only be made over the phone during our regular office hours.
  • We will need to confirm funds available in your account for purchase.
  • We transfer your investment to fully allocated and segregated storage within Brinks Calgary. This is the only facility available for our program. When the precious metals are received in your account, Questrade removes the funds from your account to pay us for the purchase.
  • You will receive an order confirmation by email after your order is placed. You will then be notified by us when your product has been shipped into storage. Questrade will update your account the next business day.

Important Notes

  • Minimum purchase of USD $1000. Silver items must be purchased in "tube" quantities for coins, or individual bars. Gold may be purchased by individual item.
  • Due to chain of custody concerns you cannot contribute metal that you currently hold personally. Only new product that has not left the secure chain of custody is eligible for registered accounts.
  • Storage cost of 1%/year, charged monthly in USD, calculated based on gold and silver holdings on the last business day of the month.
  • Storage costs can be paid from a separate margin account you hold with Questrade, if not the fee will be charged to the registered account. Please contact us for more details.
  • Inactivity fee of USD $24.95 per quarter, waived if account equity is USD $5,000 or greater.
  • Transferring funds between financial institutions to fund your new account can take several weeks, please be patient!
