Many Americans are feeling insecure about retirement

According to American IRA, a Self-Directed IRA administration firm, “many Americans are feeling insecure about retirement.” That is according to a new post at the American IRA website, which highlights why so many Americans are feeling this way. Gone are the days of the forty-five-year career and generous pensions, according to the article. But American IRA pointed out that many investors can take matters into their own hands by using a Self-Directed IRA.

Before that, American IRA examined some of the common fears about retirement. The first fear, that inflation can devastate savings, is a perfectly valid economic fear. But American IRA pointed out that holding money in assets like real estate and gold can have tremendous strength against inflation, holding on to their value even in times of economic trouble. The Self-Directed IRA makes it possible to hold these assets within a retirement account, which can boost financial security with a truly diversified portfolio.

Another fear listed in the article: the collapse of the stock market. Those investors who hold 100% stocks may have promising gains during a bull market but may find it more difficult to handle the transition of a bear market. Stock market collapses like those seen in 2008 can wipe out a tremendous amount of value in a short amount of time, which in turn makes retirement investors think twice about holding a portfolio with such little diversification.

But the Self-Directed IRA makes it possible to hold a portfolio with diverse asset classes, which in turn boosts financial security. By holding value in real estate and precious metals—not to mention other asset classes available to Self-Directed IRA investors—retirement investors can maintain a wide breadth in their portfolio and lose less value in times of economic hardship.

This, in turn, can alleviate investor fears and promote a sense of peace and security over the long-run. According to the article, this is the goal of a solid retirement strategy—even after the age of the secure pension.
