Self-Directing Your IRA
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 assets that are alternatives of conventional stocks, bonds and mutual funds. These assets, which are also approved by the IRS, include real estate, notes, private placements, gold, natural resources and much more. Many types of IRA accounts (Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, Individual 401(k), SEP IRA and SIMPLE IRA) have the capability of being self-directed.
