Responding to a recent column for Janus Capital by William Gross, Jim Hitt of Self-Directed IRA Administration Firm American IRA believes that the troubling economic times do call for self-direction in one’s retirement plan.

In these economic times, investors have to be smart about where they allocate their money.

William Gross, formerly the head of PIMCO’s bond investment desk, wrote a column for Janus Capital in which he explained that banks across the world have shrank yields from bond investments, with interest rates sinking to unprecedented territory. According to Gross, interest rates kept so artificially low can lead to de-incentivizing savings and investments, and the time may be for investors to look for alternate asset classes to find the retirement returns they need. The Self-Directed IRA may be one way to achieve this, according to Jim Hitt.

Jim Hitt, the CEO of American IRA in Asheville, North Carolina, agreed with Gross’ analysis of the situation across the world. “It really is true, what Mr. Gross said about banks—and the consequences of these low interest rates,” said Jim Hitt. “My perspective from the viewpoint of a Self-Directed IRA administration firm suggests to me that investors are looking for other ways to get the returns they need. When you take away interest rates, you also take away some of the incentives that retirement investors have for parking their money in bonds. Investors will go to other asset classes for security and for yields.”

With a Self-Directed IRA, investors have access to a wide variety of asset classes, including real estate, private companies, and even precious metals. In fact, retirement asset limits typically include what investors cannot invest in, rather than what they can invest in.

“In these economic times, investors have to be smart about where they allocate their money,” said Jim Hitt. “Getting a quality yield or return on investment isn’t always easy. An investor has to open themselves up to all of the possibilities with regulatory limits. The Self-Directed IRA is a way for investors to open that door for themselves.”
