ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / April 4, 2020 / Can investors make multiple investments with a Self-Directed IRA? It’s a question on many peoples’ mind, especially retirement investors who are on the bubble about getting a Self-Directed IRA. Many of these investors are concerned that they might have to stick with one type of investment within a Self-Directed IRA, which wouldn’t allow the freedom a Self-Directed IRA promises. But a recent post at American IRA dispelled the myths about Self-Directed IRAs and assured investors that they can hold different types of asset classes within a single IRA.
Just as investors can hold different types of assets-such as stocks and bonds-within a standard arrangement with an IRA, there’s nothing prohibiting an investor from holding multiple asset classes within a Self-Directed IRA. In fact, the post points out that the Self-Directed IRA isn’t a unique account type-such as that which distinguishes a Roth IRA from a Traditional IRA-but a way of leading the IRA and choosing which investments go within it.
In the post, American IRA details the ins and outs of using a Self-Directed IRA for broader diversification of assets. For many investors, the appeal of using a Self-Directed IRA is to diversify out of one asset class. For example, many investors worry about using only stocks for their retirement. On a short enough timeline, stocks can be a risky asset class because there’s no guarantee that they’ll continue to produce the same returns over five years that they have over the previous fifty. The appeal of a Self-Directed IRA is, to many, the idea that they can secure their retirement by using multiple asset classes to balance out the risks associated with each asset class.
“Multiple investments within a Self-Directed IRA can be key,” said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. “People need to know just how robust their options are-if they’re willing to look around for those options. And that’s what we wanted to accomplish with this post: raising awareness of the benefits of a Self-Directed IRA.”
