Self-Directed IRA, What Is It?
A Self Directed Individual Retirement Arrangement is an IRA that requires the account owner to make investment decisions and investments on behalf of the retirement plan. You must follow IRS regulations when it comes to an IRA. The IRS requires that either a qualifies trustee or a custodian hold the IRA assets on behalf of the IRA owner. The trustee or custodian will act as a bookkeeper as well as an advisor to you making sure that you are abiding by all regulations. They should be consulted before investing your IRA funds so you make sure you do not get involved in any prohibitive transactions. The range of permissible investments is broad, however, the IRS does place limits on the types of assets that may be invested in and on the types of transactions that may be carried out.
