Diversification is a strategy that should be deployed by anyone who cannot accurately predict the future – which is just about everyone. While the stock market provides an ability to spread investment risks over geography, company size, market sectors, and other categories, the fact remains that public exchanges cannot provide full diversification.
You cannot own titled real estate purchased from your broker in your IRA – instead, he will likely offer a choice of publically traded Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS). You cannot own gold bullion in your IRA if you rely on the stock market – rather, the market will proffer equity interests in mining companies instead. Most business startups have no access to public markets at all, with investors unaware of the potential attractive returns to the early equity participants.
Without a self-directed IRA from our Florida self-directed IRA administration company, it is unlikely that full diversification can be achieved in a retirement account. Whether you are looking for cash flow from property rentals, private lending and investing in tax liens, or instead investing for future appreciation in precious metals, limited partnerships or new business ventures, the choice is yours with a self-directed IRA.

True diversification lies with understanding you choices, taking time to know the market, and executing your purchases with confidence, then staying involved in your investments.
