What is a Self-Directed IRA?

A Self-Directed IRA simply refers to an IRA account which is permitted to be invested in traditional assets, such as stocks, but also alternative assets, such as real estate or even cryptocurrencies. In the last several years, the number of Self-Directed IRA accounts has grown significantly.


Why Go Self-Directed?

With a self-directed retirement account, you can make almost any type of investment, including real estate, allowing one to diversify and potentially better protect your retirement portfolio. If the COVID-19 pandemic had any positive impact, it was that many Americans started asking about alternative investment options for their retirement accounts. Diversification is a strategy to help make sure retirement assets aren’t concentrated in a certain type of investment or area.

We help you keep your IRA compliant

What are prohibited transactions?
Learn what qualifies as a prohibited transaction before you make investments with your IRA. If you don’t follow the IRS rules, your investments may lead to high taxes or the disqualification of your IRA. Fill out our form to speak to a Self-Directed IRA specialist to learn more.

Who is a disqualified person?
Most prohibited transactions involve transactions with a disqualified person. You, the IRA owner, are considered a disqualified person, along with your immediate family. You can remain compliant by learning who and what the IRS considers a disqualified person. Call us today to learn more.
