Investing in what you know best is part of the power of a self-directed IRA. A truly self-directed IRA allows you to invest in alternative assets(approved by the IRS), such as real estate, notes, private placements, and much more. Many types of IRA accounts (Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, Individual 401(k), SEP IRA or SIMPLE IRA) can be self-directed. A “self-directed” IRA is an industry term, not an IRS term. The provider of custodial/administrator services for IRAs are allowed by the IRS to choose the assets that they want to service. Most of these providers only allow you to invest in stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
