Advanta IRA is holding a nationwide webinar on November 5 for investors who want to learn more about diversifying assets in retirement portfolios. The webinar covers how to use LLCs and trusts to hold real estate in self-directed IRAs, what is involved in the process, and how to avoid prohibited transactions when investing with self-directed accounts.

The use of LLCs and trusts for retirement planning is not restricted to sophisticated investors, but the details involved can certainly more complicated than the average acquisition of real estate in an IRA. Advanta IRA is holding this webinar to show individuals and investors of all levels how to use their self-directed retirement plans in this manner.
Self-directed retirement account owners have total control in choosing their own assets to build retirement income on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis. Self-direction opens the door to many alternative investment possibilities, such as precious metals, private lending options, crowdfunding, real estate, and more. Plan owners have the freedom to acquire assets they are familiar with in an effort to increase the potential returns on their investments.
Alternative investments are most often held directly in the name of the IRA. However, IRAs can also hold a private placement—such as an LLC or trust—which, in turn, invests in the desired assets. Real estate is the most popular investment in self-directed retirement plans. "Using LLCs and trusts to acquire real estate is simply another investment strategy that may work well for someone who fully understands how they function in an IRA," says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services in Largo, Florida and of Advanta IRA Administration in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Our clients choose to use self-directed IRAs because they like being in control of choosing their own assets, based on their own knowledge of different alternative investments, and having the freedom to make these investments at a pace they are comfortable with,” says Callahan.
As an experienced and successful self-directed retirement plan administrator, Advanta IRA neither sells investments nor provides investment advice. However, the firm does offer educational curriculum at no cost for investors who want to learn about self-directed IRAs and how to use them to build wealth towards retirement. Investors of all levels of experience are invited to attend.
