More Choices, Greater Control
When you open an account with Midland IRA, you have the ultimate freedom and flexibility to determine your investments. We do not sell investments or give advice, so the investing decisions are completely up to the investor. There are many self-directed retirement account advantages, but the main benefit is access to an asset class called alternative investments.
Bank and brokerage firms may offer “self-directed” IRA plans. But, they only allow you to invest in products they sell, which limits you to Wall Street stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
Self-Directed Retirement Account Advantages Compared to Others
When you open an account at Midland IRA, you can truly self-direct your IRA by gaining the freedom to choose alternative investments like real estate, private equity, notes and more.
Wall Street Banks & Brokerage Firms
Traditional brokerage firms offer traditional, Roth, SEP, SIMPLE and solo 401(k) plans that allow you to earn tax-free or tax-deferred retirement income.
Traditional custodians (such as Schwab, Fidelity or your local bank) limit you to investments that they sell.
Many financial institutions that management retirement accounts charge a host of built-in (hidden) fees to investors without you ever realizing it.
With Wall Street investments, your diversification is limited to a portfolio of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, money markets, etc.
