Self-directed account owners have decided they would rather be in control of their own funds and decisions and doing so opens the door to a vast amount of alternative investments permissible in these plans.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
There have been many discussions recently by financial experts regarding the increasing popularity of alternative investments. Clients of Advanta IRA know a viable alternative asset can potentially score higher gains at a faster pace than more traditional methods.
Self-directed IRAs are also receiving recognition, as these accounts allow a very large pool of non-traditional assets not available in the typical IRA. Why? Because, the average IRA custodian limits investors to options they sell which are typically the more traditional options such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Those who use these custodians are comfortable allowing their account managers to pick and choose investments for them—from the limited, traditional offerings on the firm’s menu.
“Self-directed account owners have decided they would rather be in control of their own funds and decisions and doing so opens the door to a vast amount of alternative investments permissible in these plans,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services in Florida and Advanta IRA Administration in Georgia. "Additionally, these plan owners have learned that by investing in things they personally know and understand, their chances of success increase…sometimes exponentially.”
This webinar is designed for investors to learn about alternative investments and the diversification these assets offer to portfolios. Knowledge is power—and Advanta IRA believes that when people come to understand these alternative assets the more willing they become to explore the potential they hold in building wealth inside a self-directed IRA.
