Owning a self-directed IRA may be the key to your
comfortable retirement. A self-directed IRA is an individual retirement account
where the owner directs all investments. There is no legal distinction between
a self-directed IRA and any other IRA, except that with a truly self-directed
IRA, the account agreement allows the broadest possible spectrum of
investments. There are several types of accounts that can be self-directed,
such as Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, SEP IRA, SIMPLE IRA, 401K, Coverdell
Education Savings Account and the Health Savings Account.
You can use your self-directed IRA to purchase
almost anything such as assets like real estate, promissory notes, non-publicly
traded company stock, limited partnerships, tax liens, LLCs and much more.
Self-directed IRAs allow you to invest in what you know best!
