Self-Directed IRAs

Self-Directed IRAs

The main differences between Self-Directed IRAs (also called Checkbook IRAs) and conventional IRAs are:

1) You can choose exactly where you want your money placed.
2) You can choose from a wider selection of investment options.

In addition to stocks, bonds, CDs, and mutual funds, with a Self-Directed IRA you also have the option to invest in real estate, private placements, notes, and precious metals – to name a few. Many times, this means higher returns in investments that you understand better.

The most common way people give up their power

is by thinking they don’t have any.
