Self Directed IRA

Self Directed IRA is name given to an Individual Retirement Arrangement (commonly known as an IRA) that requires you as the account owner to make the investment decisions on behalf of your retirement plan.

Most banks and brokerage companies that provide IRA custodial services and advertise “Self-Directed IRA’s” will only allow you to “direct” your IRA into investment products that they offer. They will not allow you to make investments such as real estate or other alternative investments…this is not a truly self directed IRA.

A truly self directed IRA will allow you to make investment choices such as real estate (including international real estate), Mortgages and Trust Deeds, Private Equity, Tax Liens, Precious Metals, Oil & Gas, and much, much more.
