An IRA holder’s private knowledge and investment experience can be used for the benefit of their IRA. In fact, almost any investment that makes money outside of an IRA can also be used to make money inside an IRA. Alternative assets lie outside of the stock market and bring balance and diversity to your retirement portfolio. Invest in a market that is familiar to you. Put your knowledge and experience to work for the benefit of your IRA’s growth.
Many investors have a personal agenda when it comes to choosing assets. For example, some account holders favor “green” investments. Other individuals choose to invest in local opportunities.
As long as the asset acquisition is a real, economic transaction intended to make money for the IRA, the IRS will allow you to exercise your own agenda when selecting an investment.
Advocate for a cause, pursue your passions, and enlist your expertise to invest in alternative assets. Investors can support local economic growth and development, and follow the beat of their own drum when choosing alternative assets.
