WHAT MAKES AN IRA "SELF-DIRECTED?"

A self-directed IRA provides the opportunity to invest in alternative investments – not just traditional stocks, bonds and mutual funds.

Types of Alternative Assets to Invest In
Using a Self-Directed IRA

Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency is a digital currency maintained by a decentralized system using cryptography. A Crypto IRA requires the account owner to invest through an LLC to maintain a digital wallet with which to buy and trade digital assets.

Metals

A Precious Metal IRA includes investments in gold, silver, platinum, or palladium that meets specific purity standards. This includes American Eagle bullion coins, US Buffalo bullion coins, Canadian Maple Leaf coins, and more.

Marketplace Loans

Marketplace lending includes investments in private loans such as consumer debt, student debt, small business debt, automobile refinance, and real estate property.

Multi-Member LLC

A multi-member LLC is a limited liability company with two or more members. This structure allows multiple IRAs, even those that are connected to prohibited people, to invest in the same asset.

Mutual Funds

A mutual fund is an investment vehicle comprised of a pool of funds from many investors that buys stocks, bonds, and other securities. Investments in mutual funds are considered a simple way to build a diversified portfolio.

Private Equity

Private equity consists of capital that is not listed on a public exchange. Self-directed IRAs can invest in private equity through a fund or directly in a company.

Real Estate

A Real Estate IRA includes investments in real estate and real estate-related assets, including residential, commercial, mortgage notes, offshore real estate, and Real Estate Owned (REO) properties.

Secured Notes

A secured promissory note is a type of loan or corporate bond that is backed by the borrower's assets as a form of collateral. This type of investment can be done via a new note or through purchasing an existing note.

Single
Member LLC

A Single Member LLC, also known as an IRA LLC or Checkbook IRA, is a type of alternative investment where a private entity is wholly or majority owned by an IRA.

Traded Assets

Traded assets (stocks, bonds, online marketplace, etc.) are a collection of securities held by an individual or firm for the purpose of reselling for a profit.

Unsecured Notes

Unsecured promissory notes are loans that are not secured by the issuer's assets. This type of investment can be done via a new note or through purchasing an existing note.

Viaticals & Life Settlements

Viatical and life settlement IRAs allow investors to use their IRA to purchase a person's life insurance policy at a discount and name the IRA as the beneficiary.
