Advanta IRA Services Holds Empowering Event for Investors: Borrowing and Lending Using Self-Directed IRAs

Owners of self-directed IRAs control their own retirement funds and decisions. The largest draw for those who self-direct is the ability to use a large pool of alternative assets besides the traditional stock, bond or mutual fund to build wealth in these accounts.
Private lending investments are one example of a popular non-traditional asset. Additionally, self-directed accounts are able to borrow funds in the form of a non-recourse loan to attain more capital for investing.
The lunch and learn on March 27 covers a variety of private lending investments including mortgage notes. These transactions allow self-directed plans to act as a bank or other lending institution does in extending loans for mortgages, trust deeds, secured and unsecured notes, and even for things such as judgments and structured settlements.
Topics to be covered include:
Different private lending investments available and how they work in self-directed plans
Prohibited transactions and disqualified persons
How non-recourse loans may be obtained and the impact it has on earnings in the IRA
The benefits and risks of these transactions
Types of investments the firm has seen people make
“Profit from private lending is largely gained through earnings on interest rates and this income flows directly into a self-directed IRA on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services in Florida as well as of Advanta IRA Administration in Georgia. “Non-recourse loans are a way the self-directed IRA can obtain additional capital for investing if the account itself does not have ample funds to do so.”
Advanta IRA does not sell investments or give financial and investing advice. The successful self-directed IRA custodian does provide critical educational courses such as this one to teach individuals how self-direction works and the many investment possibilities allowed in these accounts.
Investors of all levels are invited and encouraged to attend this complimentary event. This event also provides credit for professionals who are earning their self-directed IRA specialist designation by completing Advanta IRA University course curriculum.
Early registration is encouraged, as seating is limited.
