Other additional information refers to the facts that the company has been in business since 11/05/1999 and that it has 21 employees.

Similarly to the BBB, the Business Consumer Alliance record that they know of no government actions against Goldworth Financial, nor do they have any information relating to advertising history.
Goldworth Financial Trustlink
Although Goldworth are listed on the Trustlink site there has not been a single review posted about the company there yet.
Goldworth Financial have been in business a long time, they have a good website, a good range of products and they are obviously keeping their customers happy since there are no complaints recorded against them at either the Better Business Bureau or the Business Consumer Alliance. It’s a shame that there are virtually no customer reviews to be found anywhere but it has to be assumed that if there were any they would in the main be positive.
For precious metals IRAs they offer scaled fees as opposed to flat ones. You can read about the implications here.
Goldworth Financial have a good reputation and are worthy of consideration for your precious metals investments. They are not our Top Recommended company however. You can see why we came to that conclusion by comparing them side by side here:
