Alternative Asset Investment Options

The unique advantage your self-directed IRA or solo 401(k) plan offers is the power to truly diversify and invest in what you know.

Some of the alternate investment options for your self-directed retirement plan include assets such as real estate, precious metals, trust deeds and private placements and cryptocurrencies.

Since most mainstream brokerages and banks do not offer investment services in these categories, many investors are unaware of them. These types of assets are worth examining and can provide principal security as well as the potential for income and appreciation in value. In order to decide which strategies will be the best fit for your financial goals, it is important to have all the necessary tools and accurate information to make those decisions.
