For anyone who is interested in gaining more control over their retirement portfolio, having the right kind of investment vehicle is essential. Even if you think you have total investing authority with your current standard IRAs or ROTHs, you really don’t. The fact is whether you know it or not you are limited and you can’t invest in certain areas unless you have the right investment vehicle, regardless of how well you might know those areas.
Don’t Be Limited
With both a standard account and ROTH, you are limited as to where you can invest your retirement money. For example, you can’t invest in physical gold in standard IRAs or ROTHs. Another example would be real property, whether residential or commercial. While you might be able to buy and sell property investment trusts, or REITS, you can’t buy actual property. Only by setting up a self directed options will you truly be able to have the flexibility and control you might desire with your investments.
Write a Check
Unlike standard and ROTH plans, an Individual Retirement Plan LLC account allows for check writing right out of your account in order to secure an investment. Your facilitator can help you open up this type of special account that will allow you to write checks with the funds in your account. This will allow you to take advantage of investment opportunities that you find, even if it is a spur of the moment decision. This is important, as there are many investment opportunities that can arise that will call for action immediately. With this arrangement, you will be able to take action.
Know the Facts
While a qualified plan LLC provides more freedom and more flexibility, it might not be the best choice for everyone, it is the only choice for those who wish to be in total control over their investments. Total control might not be wanted if you are the type of person who likes to stick to investing in mutual funds, but if you are the type of person who wants to use your own specific knowledge and experiences to invest in tangible investments, then total control is likely what you are after.
