Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
Self-directed IRAs give account owners total control in choosing their own assets to build retirement income on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis. Alternative investments are most often acquired and held directly in the name of the IRA. However, IRAs can also hold a private placement—such as an LLC or trust—which, in turn, invests in the desired assets.
As investors become more familiar with self-direction, they are learning the different ways these plans can be used to acquire alternative investments. “Many investors hold private placements in the form of an LLC or a trust as assets in their IRAs and these entities acquire investments that can help build wealth toward retirement,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA with locations in the Tampa, Florida and Atlanta, Georgia areas.
As an experienced and successful self-directed IRA administrator, Advanta IRA neither sells investments nor provides investment advice. What the company does do is provide educational curriculum at no cost for investors who want to learn about self-directed IRAs and how to use them to build wealth towards retirement.
“Our clients choose to use self-directed IRAs because they like being in control of choosing their own assets, based on their own knowledge of different alternative investments, and having the freedom to make these investments at a pace they are comfortable with,” says Callahan.
LLCs and trusts are simply another investment strategy that may work well for someone who fully understands how they work in an IRA. While real estate is the most popular investment in an IRA, alternative investment pool is quite large and includes notes and mortgages, precious metals, tax liens and certificates, foreign exchange and even timber rights and options contracts…and much more.
These types of transactions are not restricted to sophisticated investors, but the details involved can certainly be a bit more complicated than the average acquisition of real estate in an IRA. With this in mind, Advanta IRA is holding this event tailored for individuals and investors of all levels to learn how to use their self-directed IRAs in this manner.
