How to Choose a Self-Directed IRA Administrator

If you are part of the growing class of investors who have decided to take control of your own retirement funds and decisions by self-directing your IRA, the next step is critical—choosing the right self-directed plan administrator. Finding the right fit for you and your investment needs is just as important as the due diligence you should exercise when choosing assets in your portfolio.

Things to Consider

Make sure the administrator you choose facilitates the investments you wish to make. Even though self-directed plans allow alternative investments such as real estate, precious metals, foreign exchange and futures trading, private lending, oil and gas options, and much more—not all plan administrators are equipped to maintain some of these assets.

You also want to ensure the company you choose is knowledgeable in the industry.
