Why Self Direct?

Check out the report on Self Directed IRA's on the Today show:

Discover Little Known Strategies Used by Only 3% of Investors

Are you thinking about self directing your retirement account and joining an exclusive group of investors that are taking control of their financial future?

Self directed IRA’s are a strategy utilized by an exclusive, in-the-know, group of investors. 97% of all IRA’s are invested in stocks and bonds through traditional outlets who rely on commissions for their survival. This is true even though self directed IRA’s have been around since 1974. Although this group is exclusive and on the cutting edge, the secret is slowly being let out of the bag.

Why do some of the wealthiest families rely on self directed IRA’s?

  1. Get Control. When you use a self directed IRA you are in control and you get to make the decisions.
  2. Diversification. You can truly diversify your portfolio by investing in things that are truly “stock market neutral”. That means your investments don’t go up and down everyday when the stock market does.
  3. Tax Benefits. Retirement and other tax advantaged accounts offer the easiest way to achieve huge tax benefits. The tax benefits range from tax deductions today to tax protection on income and profits to tax free income in the future. Best of all, by having the opportunity to choose from a variety of accounts you can select the tax benefits you want the most.
  4. Increased Savings. Retirement accounts were created by the federal government and afford an easy way to save, invest and grow your wealth to achieve specific goals.

Why haven’t I heard about this?

Well, it’s a conspiracy. Okay, not exactly. The truth is that most traditional financial institutions charge commissions and fees on investments. When it comes to self directed IRA’s, you are the one making the investment decisions and there is no good way to charge you a commission. This is simply not part of their business model and they don’t offer true self direction as an option.
