It’s not easy, but it is simple! Develop your own personal bank to expand your business…look to Self-Directed IRA (SDIRA) Investors! SDIRA Investors can fund your projects, if you approach them with a great business plan.

Given the downturn of the economy, more investors are looking for alternatives for their retirement account investments. Many investors have not been aware that they can invest in alternative assets with their IRA, but awareness of this option is becoming more mainstream.

Investors can diversify their investment portfolios and receive the same tax-deferral for their IRAs that they would with stocks or bonds, and the same tax-free capital gains for their Roth IRAs.

Using Retirement Funds as Capital

Retirement account funds cannot be used for discretionary expenses—the funds are strictly for investing or asset-related expenses.

Here are a few of the advantages of tapping the IRA market as a source of capital:

∙ More than $4.2 trillion exists in IRAs as of 2010
∙ This money is set aside by IRA owners strictly for investing
∙ More than $250 billion flows into IRAs yearly, as those retiring rollover their retirement plans
∙ Only about 3% of money in IRAs is invested outside the publicly-traded stock and bond market
∙ Unlike taxable investments, Self-Directed IRAs offer investors tax-deferred or tax-free growth

Get Started

Submit your investment for administrative review.

“Acceptance” does not mean “approval” and does not imply any endorsement, recommendation, and/or evaluation of the merit or risk of an investment. There is no charge for this review process.

You will be notified when the review is complete, whether the investment is “Accepted” or “Declined.”

If the investment is “Accepted,” your Funding Request will be included in our list of reviewed investment opportunities made available to our Capital Investor Network.

If you have questions concerning this review process, please contact us with your questions.
