Other Alternative Investments

Self-directed IRAs give you freedom from mainstream investment limitations. You have investment options other than stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Acquire assets that can do just as well, if not better, than these traditional investments. The fact is, alternative investment options are limitless. The only two assets you cannot invest in are life insurance and collectibles.

The most popular asset in a self-directed plan is real estate. However, there are many other alternative investments you can choose from. Start building your retirement income with alternative assets today!

Examples include:

Accounts receivable
Commercial paper
Oil and gas options
Mineral rights
Equipment leasing
Structured settlements
Building bonds
Limited partnerships
Rights or warrants
Tax lien certificates & deeds

The key is to invest in what you know and understand. Capitalize on your knowledge and expertise when choosing assets for your retirement plan. The above are a few popular examples of different available options.
