3 Tools for a Better Financial Future


Written by Angela Roberts

There’s hope for the future—but we’ll need the tools to get there.

Gallup’s Economic Confidence Index, which combines Americans’ impressions of both current and future economic conditions in a theoretical range of -100 to +100, went from +41 in February 2020 to -13 in February 2021. That doesn’t invite great confidence, but change is in the air: 63% of those polled said they expect to be better off a year from now.

But how do you turn that expectation into reality? Here are three tools that can help you along the way.


Gain an understanding of your finances.

The first tool you need is financial literacy—the ability to understand your own finances and the financial world around you. By staying informed, you can make the best decisions possible for your portfolio. As it happens, April is Financial Literacy Month, making now the perfect time to find the right resources to help you learn more about your personal finances and make the right decisions for protecting and growing your wealth.

At U.S. Money Reserve, we believe that an educated client is our best client. That’s why we provide our customers with our exclusive online Knowledge Center; educational videos via our YouTube channel; blog posts, emails, and Special Reports written just for our customers; and our industry-leading U.S. Money Reserve Gold Guide and Information Kit.

If that all sounds a bit daunting, don’t worry. Financial literacy doesn’t mean having all the answers.


Financial literacy means knowing when to ask for help.

Another important tool you need to help shape your financial future is just that—help. The economy is complicated, and markets change rapidly. No one should be expected to learn everything there is to know about managing a portfolio—especially when you're just looking to help turn years of hard work into a comfortable retirement.

You can get peace of mind without burying yourself in piles of financial research. U.S. Money Reserve is the only precious metals company with a former U.S. Mint director serving as its president. We have decades of experience helping people just like you looking to diversify their portfolios with precious metals. In short—we’re here to help.


U.S. Money Reserve is here for the long haul.

The third tool you need is time. Markets can ebb and flow on a daily basis, but precious metals have proven to be a time-tested safe haven against inflation and other market disruptors. This is why we strive to become lifelong partners of our clients, providing a superior customer experience regardless of whether you’re just looking to learn or making your tenth purchase with us. At U.S. Money Reserve, we want you to diversify responsibly and continue to shape a portfolio that suits your needs.

Securing your future requires financial literacy, help, and time. That’s why we pride ourselves on providing you with a wealth of information to help you weather financial storms and diversify your assets. When you’re ready to secure more precious metals for your portfolio or want to explore the benefits of a Self-Directed Precious Metals IRA, we’ll be here—ready to help, educate, and stand by your side throughout your precious metals journey.
