Largo, FL (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
In private lending transactions, the self-directed IRA plays the part a bank normally does by providing loans for mortgages and trust deeds, secured and unsecured notes, and even for things such as judgments and structured settlements. “Savvy investors make private loans to individuals or entities in efforts to potentially increase the wealth of their retirement accounts—through earnings on interest rates and repayment terms of these loans,” says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Services.
Private lending through a self-directed IRA offers benefits for both the lender and borrower. “The private lender (IRA) provides capital to the borrower much faster and with more accommodating terms than traditional lending institutions,” says Callahan.
The IRA owner chooses the loan recipient, the type and terms of the loan, and also decides whether to provide secured or unsecured loans. Secured loans are backed by collateral to protect from default. Unsecured loans typically are offered at a higher rate of interest in lieu of collateral.
In an effort to educate investors nationwide on the benefits and risks of private lending, Advanta IRA Services is holding a webinar on September 26, 2013 from 12:00-1:00pm. Investors of all levels are invited and encouraged to attend. This webinar discusses the benefits and risks (prohibited transactions and being careful not to lend to disqualified persons) of private lending investments.
