    Lear Capital can help you diversify your investment portfolios with precious metal bullion (coins and bars by weight), numismatic coins and precious metal IRAs. To help you make informed decisions, Lear Capital also provides real-time guidance and access to daily and weekly updates.

    How does Lear Capital work?

    Lear Capital then reaches out to your current IRA custodian on your behalf to arrange for the tax-free rollover of your funds. The funds are transferred via bank wire and deposited into your new precious metals IRA.

    You can then arrange to buy precious metals for your IRA. Lear Capital offers a three-step Price Advantage Guarantee for every transaction, which provides you with a written account agreement, a phone confirmation and a written confirmation. All IRA metals are stored in an IRS-approved vault courtesy of Delaware Depository. The metals are backed with a comprehensive insurance policy from Lloyd’s of London, too.

    I have been very pleased with Lear and Morrey **. I was never pressured or pushed in any way. Morrey sent a packet of materials, emails and was always available to answer any questions that I had. Morrey is very knowledgeable of precious metals, stock market and current events. We had several very good discussions which resulted in my purchase. I plan to send others your way and to return myself. Thank you Lear and thank you Morrey!

    This was our first major investment in precious metals. We were uncertain on how to go about our purchase. But Morrey ** was very very helpful explaining and guiding us through the process. He is a wreath of knowledge. He kept in constant contact with us thru the whole process, and thanks to Morrey everything went smoothly as he said that it would. Would recommend Lear Capital and Morrey to anyone interested in precious metals. Thanks to Morrey, Roger and Linda ** Spokane Valley, Wash.

      Dmitri answered my call to Lear, he came across as honest, helpful, and truthful. No pressure just talking to the guy sitting next to me. I appreciate that! I told him what I was looking for and he answered my questions. I shared my experience with a competitor of yours. There was a stark difference. Please give Dmitri a raise or a gift certificate to a nice restaurant. He is the reason your company will succeed. Thank you.

      Maury ** is a great contact and representative for the Lear Organization. He was very knowledgeable, patient and informative in our first discussion. He presented my options keeping in mind my stated limitations. He followed up appropriately and provided step by step excellent directions. I would recommend him to my friends and family and will contact him again in the future for additional purchases. The entire process was easy and efficient.

      Overall experience with Gerry ** and Terry ** was great. Very helpful. Great attitudes. Positive outlooks. My biggest obstacle is always with paperwork and Kelly **? was so helpful and kind. She even offered to stay on the line while we Contacted Voya. It was no problem for her. Out of her way to be kind and friendly. Don’t know what you pay her but she would be a bargain at twice the price.

      Morrey ** is my contact from Lear Capital. His engaging voice and clear communication made the transaction very easy and fluid. Morrey is very cordial and helpful. His knowledge of the subject matter is complete and clearly communicated. He always takes his time, and never hurried in his conversation.

      If I could give 10 stars for Dmitri ** I would. The customer service I have received from him is THE BEST of anyone I have ever worked with in any company. Customer service in these days of less human contact is a total frustration. Dmitri ** is a joy to work with. You are lucky to have him as the voice of Lear Capital.

      These two did an awesome job taking care of me. We had a bad experience trying to funnel my IRA to LC but Brook stayed on it and got the job done, (Not an easy task for her) Dmitri took his time with me and helped me with all the ins and outs. You certainly have two great employees on your team!!
