Other Investments

When you choose to self-direct your IRA, you are opening a world of opportunities that allow you to control the security of your retirement account. You are able to invest in things you know, understand, and control.

The more you diversify your portfolio, the more you increase the wealth-building potential of your IRA.

There are many investments you may hold in your IRA and it is impossible to list every one of them.  Rather than list all of the investments available to you in your IRA, the IRS instead made a short list of prohibited investments that include life insurance and collectibles, such as works of art, rugs, antiques, metals (other than gold, silver and palladium bullion), gems, stamps, coins, alcoholic beverages, and other tangible personal property as may be defined by the Secretary of Treasury.

Some examples of other investment options that you can hold in your Advanta IRA include:

  • Oil & gas rights
  • Tax certificates
  • Structured settlements
  • Commercial paper
  • Convertible notes
  • Commodities
  • Livestock
  • Timberland
  • Rights or warrants
  • Accounts receivable factoring
  • Equipment leasing
