Private lending is an increasingly popular investment in IRAs. Your retirement account plays the part that a bank would in extending notes and private mortgages to those seeking funds. The borrower can use this capital to purchase a home or a car, or even turn around and invest the money into something they want to acquire to earn income.
These transactions offer great benefits for all parties involved. Your IRA earns tax-sheltered income on the interest of the loan, and the borrower is able to get needed cash and avoid today’s stringent requirements of mainstream lending institutions. As the IRA owner, you call the shots and get to choose who your IRA lends money to, set the terms of the loan and decide if you’ll extend a secured loan backed by collateral or an unsecured loan with a higher interest rate.
