American IRAs' latest blog "Due Diligence in Self-Directed IRAs" is an important read for anyone who invests or is thinking of investing with their IRA.
This blog draws an interesting parallel stating that the chances are good everything important people ever learned about investing they learned in kindergarten, such as look both ways before crossing, don’t get in a windowless van with strangers, check the weather before running outside, and more. Adulthood and investing – including IRA investing – is simply the application of these basic principles to ever more complex situations. In the investment context, the application of these basic principles of self-protection is called due diligence.
Due diligence is vital in any investment context – but it’s especially so for clients who use Self-Directed IRAs and other retirement accounts.
Readers of this blog will learn that due diligence is the analytical process by which any investor works to reduce the chances of and severity of loss, first, before it focuses on potential gains. Don't be fooled by the person selling the asset. Of course they will paint the upside...what they won't do is explain the downside. It is the investors responsibility to carefully analyze the investment and consult with their professionals before purchasing any asset.
This blog talks about where to find due diligence lists for assets along with a list of considerations that are important to every investor. It also delves into RMD rules, asset location, investment type, un-related debt financed income, and more.
