Largo, Florida (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
Investors capitalize on their own knowledge to acquire alternative investments as assets inside investment portfolios by using self-directed IRAs and other like accounts. Alternative investments include: real estate, precious metals, mortgages, notes, tax liens, private placements, LLCs, foreign currency exchange, and futures trading. Other alternative investments are found in oil and gas opportunities, cattle, raw land, accounts receivable and more. The list of possible alternative investments can be extensive. The only items not allowed as assets are the following, as determined by the IRS: collectibles and life insurance contracts.
“Self-directed IRA account administrators like Advanta IRA allow clients to hold alternative investments in their portfolios. Why? Because diversity is key when investing, and alternative investments have the potential to garner income for investment accounts at a faster pace than traditional investments,” says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Services. “While Advanta IRA does not provide investment advice, we do encourage investors to educate themselves on the benefits of self-directing their investment accounts and offer a wide platform of events designed to do exactly that.”
With that in mind, Advanta IRA is hosting the webinar below in an effort to educate investors on the potential benefits of all types of self-directed investment accounts.
