The latest issue of Kiplinger’s Magazine features a familiar name to frequent visitors of the American IRA blog. In the issue, American IRA of Asheville, NC took the opportunity to extoll the virtues of the Self-Directed IRA and Self-Directed investing in general.

In the article, CEO Jim Hitt noted that most investors think of investments only in terms of stocks, securities, bonds, etc. Throughout the text, however, Jim Hitt introduced the idea of true diversification of retirement assets through several different asset classes, including real estate and precious metals. As Self-Directed IRAs allow investors to make retirement investments from a broader swath of potential assets, it increases the ability to diversify and decreases reliance on a healthy stock market to guarantee retirement success.

The article went on to explain that “hard assets” can be a great way of adding value to a retirement portfolio. This added security promotes peace of mind when investing for retirement. “I wanted to demonstrate to the Kiplinger’s audience there is another way to investment success and building a retirement nest egg,” said Jim Hitt. “And your success does not always have to be so tightly tied to the stock market.”

Kiplinger’s Magazine is a leading voice in the personal finance world, retirement planning, and understanding one’s own financial habits. Jim Hitt explained that the financially-savvy audience was an ideal fit for American IRA’s message of true asset diversification.

“With many investors, it comes down to not knowing the options,” said Jim Hitt. “But a Self-Directed IRA blows the doors wide open. It gives investors all sorts of options for acquiring hard assets, diversifying their net worth, and giving themselves opportunities for growth without depending on the stock market. Those self-driven, ambitious types who are interested in retirement investing are usually interested in learning how they can help themselves with a different type of strategy.”
