Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) February 18, 2015 -- Self-directed IRAs give account owners control over their investment funds and choices. Additionally, these accounts are open to a multitude of alternative investments. A growing number of investors use self-directed plans to acquire many different assets such as real estate, precious metals, oil, gas, and timber options, foreign exchange and futures trading, private lending, and much more.
The seminar on February 24 will cover private lending investments in great detail. These transactions allow self-directed plans to perform the same actions a bank or other lending institution does in extending loans for mortgages, trust deeds, secured and unsecured notes, and even for things such as judgments and structured settlements.
“In private lending transactions, account owners determine the terms of the loan made by their plans,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Administration in Atlanta, Georgia. The account holder fully vets and chooses the loan recipient, decides the terms, and has the option to provide a secured or unsecured loan. “Profit from private lending is largely gained through earnings on interest rates and this income flows directly into a self-directed IRA on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis,” says Callahan.
Investors of all levels are invited and encouraged to attend this complimentary event.
Topics attendees learn about include:
• Benefits and risks of private lending
• Types of loans Advanta IRA has seen clients invest in
• Disqualified persons and prohibited transactions
• How an IRA can actually be the borrower on a transaction and non-recourse loans
Early registration is encouraged as seating is limited.
