Our clients use self-directed IRAs because they want to choose their own assets, based on their own knowledge of different alternative investments.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) June 19, 2015
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. As investors become more familiar with self-direction, they are learning the different ways these plans can be used to acquire alternative investments.
As an experienced and successful self-directed IRA administrator, Advanta IRA neither sells investments nor provides investment advice. However, the firm does 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.
Alternative investments are most often 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. Real estate is the most popular asset held in self-directed retirement plans. Using LLCs and trusts to invest in real estate is simply another investment strategy that may work well for someone who fully understands how they function in an IRA. These seminars are designed to teach attendees how the process works.
“Our clients use self-directed IRAs because they want to choose their own assets, based on their own knowledge of different alternative investments,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services in Largo, Florida and of Advanta IRA Administration in Atlanta, Georgia.
These types of transactions are not restricted to sophisticated investors, but the details involved can certainly more complicated than the average acquisition of real estate in an IRA. Advanta IRA is holding these events in their Florida and Georgia locations to show individuals and investors of all levels how to use their self-directed IRAs in this manner.
