Why the Self-Directed IRA LLC isn’t More Popular

Self-Directed IRA LLC Popularity

Alternative Asset Investments

Alernative investments, such as real estate, precious metals and even cryptocurrency have always been permitted in IRAs, but few people seemed to know about this option. Since the financial crisis, more investors have become aware of purchasing alternative assets to mitigate risk. However, the reason most investors did not know about alternative assets is because large financial institutions have little incentive to recommend something other than stocks, bonds or mutual funds which bring in extremely profitable commission and fees for them. These days, Self-Directed IRA LLC Popularity is increasing thanks to social media and other media outlets.

The Self-Directed IRA LLC

The Self-Directed IRA LLC is like a Traditional IRA, but allows you to invest in alternative assets. It is an IRS approved retirement plan that offers the same benefits as a Traditional IRA and the same annual contribution limits. The Self-Directed IRA LLC offers the ability to make any IRS approved investment that does not involve a disqualified person without the consent of a custodian. Popularity of the Self-Direced IRA LLC lies in the fact that investors have more investment choices.

Investments include:

  • Residential or commercial real estate
  • Raw land
  • Foreclosure property
  • Mortgages
  • Mortgage pools
  • Deeds
  • Private loans
  • Tax liens
  • Private businesses
  • Limited Liability Companies
  • Limited Liability Partnerships
  • Private placements
  • Gold
  • Stocks, bonds, mutual funds
  • Most currencies
