Recent Wall Street Turbulence Causing Retirement Investors to Turn to Self-Directed IRA

Declining stock prices over last week attracting retirement investors to the real estate IRA

IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of self-directed retirement solutions, such as the self-directed IRA and solo 401(k) Plan, has seen an increasing number of retirement investors looking to make alternative investments with their retirement funds, including real estate, in light of the recent Wall Street turbulence.

“We have seen a strong surge in demand from American retirees looking to the self-directed IRA option in light of the weakening stock market in light of the Dow Jones dropping over 10% so far in 2015 with much of the losses coming in August, “ stated Susan Glass, a retirement tax specialist with the IRA Financial Group. “A strong majority of the inquires we have been getting recently have been from retirees looking to better diversify their retirement portfolio by moving their retirement funds out of the equity markets and into more alternative asset forms, such as real estate and gold in light of growing instability in the equity markets,” stated Adam Bergman, a partner with the IRA Financial Group.

The primary advantage of using a Self Directed IRA LLC or real estate IRA to make investments is that all income and gains associated with the IRA investment grow tax-deferred.

Using IRA Financial Group’s Self Directed IRA LLC with “checkbook control” solution to make real estate investments offers a number of very interesting investment opportunities, including the ability to diversify ones retirement portfolio with real estate, precious metals, and other alternative investment options. “By making self-directed real estate IRA investments, retirement investors can insulate themselves from a turbulent stock market in light of market uncertainty,” stated Mr. Bergman. With IRA Financial Group’s self directed IRA LLC solution, traditional IRA or Roth IRA funds can be used to make non-traditional investments, such as real estate, to better diversify themselves from a falling stock market. “Using a Self Directed IRA LLC to buy real estate presents a number of exciting investment diversification and tax planning opportunities,” stated Mr. Bergman

The IRA Financial Group was founded by a group of top law firm tax and ERISA lawyers who have worked at some of the largest law firms in the United States, such as White & Case LLP, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, and Thelen LLP.

IRA Financial Group is the market’s leading “checkbook control” Self Directed IRA Facilitator. IRA Financial Group has helped thousands of clients take back control over their retirement funds while gaining the ability to invest in almost any type of investment, including real estate, without custodian consent.
