The current market volatility has been taking a toll on many Americans retirement portfolios, forcing them to rethink their retirement goals and plans
Portland, ME (PRWEB) July 14, 2009
Many investors, tired of watching their retirement portfolios ride the Wall Street rollercoaster, are seeking alternative strategies for balancing their retirement portfolios. Most would prefer to have greater investment opportunities that go beyond traditional stocks and bonds. To educate investors on ways they can successfully diversify their retirement portfolios to hedge themselves from market volatility, through options such as Self Directed Retirement Accounts (SDRAs), NUA Advisors, LLC, an independent Registered Investment Advisory firm, has launched the No American Left Uninformed™ (NALU) Program.
Since the creation of the IRA in 1974, Americans have been able to invest their tax-deferred retirement accounts in almost any asset of their choosing. Yet, only a fraction of Americans are aware of this important option. Aside from a few investments, per the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), which exclude life insurance and collectibles to be held in a retirement account, the list of possibilities is virtually endless. Examples include real estate, secured and unsecured notes, tax liens, farm animals, domain names, business, airspace rights and cemeteries to name a few. If the IRC rules and regulations are adhered to, the imagination becomes the only limitation.
NUA Advisors is committed to educating all Americans of their rights to invest retirement dollars in the assets they choose, not limited to traditional investment assets of stocks, bonds and mutual funds or products that are sold by broker dealers or financial firms. As such, through its NALU Program, NUA Advisors is offering any American investor a minimum 1 hour, no cost educational seminar about investing with an SDRA and the opportunities that are afforded them under IRC. Topics outlined in the free session include:
- The fundamentals of SDRAs and how to create a SDRA
- Prohibited transactions and disqualified persons
- What investors can and cannot invest in with a SDRA
- Self dealing regulations
- How to acquire a non-traditional asset in a SDRA
- How to leverage the SDRA to purchase real estate, and much more
"The current market volatility has been taking a toll on many Americans retirement portfolios, forcing them to rethink their retirement goals and plans," said Laurie Bachelder, Principal, NUA Advisors. "Now is the perfect time for investors to take greater control of their retirement and SDRAs provide a unique opportunity to help minimize the risk associated with market volatility. As industry experts on self-directed retirement, we are excited to arm Americans with the information they need to successfully manage, grow and diversify their retirement portfolios."
