While self-directed IRAs give the account owner control over their investment choices, there are crucial elements investors must adhere to in order to achieve success.
Largo, Florida (PRWEB) October 14, 2013
Many investors have found the use of self-directed IRAs can potentially build wealth towards retirement at a faster pace than the traditional stock, bond or mutual fund. Self-directed IRA owners are able to invest in alternative investments including real estate, rental properties, LLCs, precious metals, futures and foreign exchange, private placements and much more. In fact, the only items not allowed as assets as determined by the IRS are collectibles and life insurance policies.
“The advantage self-directed IRA owners have is they choose their own investments in things they know, understand and can control instead of allowing a third party to make investments for them,” says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Services, in Largo, Florida. “However,” continues Callahan, “while self-directed IRAs give the account owner control over their investment choices, there are crucial elements investors must adhere to in order to achieve success.” Not following these rules can result in heavy penalties or even disqualification of the retirement account in question.
On October 17, 2013, Advanta IRA Services is hosting a webinar at no cost to clients and other investors that will cover the top ten things to do and not to do regarding self-directed retirement accounts. Events like this one are offered by Advanta IRA and are designed to provide investors with knowledge that helps investors understand the potential of success and also the ramifications of failing to follow the rules when utilizing self-directed IRAs.
