Learning about different types of alternative investments such as hedge funds that are allowed in self-directed IRAs is critical for investors seeking diversity in retirement portfolios.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
As with nearly any investment, hedge funds have had both positive and negative results. The media almost always sensationalizes these investment types and their impact. Investors who self-direct their retirement plans have the option to acquire hedge funds as assets, but sometimes it is hard for individuals to understand how to navigate the process. To clarify the use of self-directed IRAs to invest in hedge funds, Advanta IRA is hosting a nationwide webinar for investors who are considering adding these assets to their accounts.
In this webinar, guest speaker Dr. Paul Jabber of Globicom Advisory Services, LLC, explains what a hedge fund is and covers some of the related terms investors may have heard regarding these assets. He will also discuss how individuals can use self-directed IRAs to invest in hedge funds.
Monte Smith, CISP, of Advanta IRA Administration, LLC, explains to attendees what self-directed IRAs are and clarifies the rules and regulations of investing these accounts into private placements like hedge funds. The resulting ownership interest of the self-directed plan in these transactions is covered in great detail.
Advanta IRA encourages investors to attend this webinar to learn how self-directed plans offer account owners total control over their own investment choices. “Learning about different types of alternative investments such as hedge funds that are allowed in self-directed IRAs is critical for investors seeking diversity in retirement portfolios,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services, LLC, in Largo, Florida as well as Advanta IRA Administration, LLC, in Atlanta, Georgia.
Advanta IRA is a self-directed plan administrator serving clients nationwide. “We do not sell investments or give investment advice, but we are committed to providing current information through weekly events like this webinar—at no cost to participants—to educate investors about self-directed accounts and how they can benefit retirement income growth,” says Callahan.
