There are many benefits associated with self-directed IRAs. Here are the most noteworthy:
With a self-directed IRA or real estate IRA, you are not limited to the investment offerings of an IRA custodian or trustee. By using Entrust as the administrator for your self-directed IRA account, you have the flexibility to invest in anything that is permissible. You are not limited to a custodian’s narrow range of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, but you have access to the same tax advantages!
NOTE: If you already have a traditional or Roth IRA, or a dormant 401(k), you can transfer or rollover the funds to a self-directed plan with no penalties. You do not need to sell any of the assets that you currently have.
