Why it’s worth it
There are quite a few reasons why having a self-directed IRA can make sense:

  • If you’ve been working for a while, you may have most of your life savings locked up in a retirement account. As a result, if you want to take advantage of an opportunity to make a large investment in something unusual, your IRA will often be your best source of money to make your investment.
  • You may see more profit potential in a private investment than stock public companies offers. Using your IRA to make an early investment in a promising business can give you a huge payoff if it proves successful.
  • If you want to invest in real estate, it’s hard to find stocks that give you the same type of exposure that owning a particular property gives you.
  • The same idea holds true for other investments. The opportunity to invest in a franchise business is much different from owning shares of a company.   Investment in shares of a miner won’t have the same returns as owning actual gold and silver bullion coins.

What it boils down to is that if you have a lot of money in an IRA and want to expand your investments beyond ordinary securities, a self-directed IRA can help you do what you want with your money.
