Alternative Investments & Self Directed IRA's Alternative Investments When you invest in real estate or private businesses, their values do not generally fluctuate day to day like investments in the stock or bond market. Alternative investments provide qualified investors with exposure to markets and investment strategies that cannot be accessed through traditional fixed income and equity markets. In addition to attractive risk-adjusted return potential, alternatives allow clients to diversify their portfolios by investment strategy, portfolio manager, industry sector, geography and liquidity needs. Alternatives have the potential to balance a traditional or conventional portfolio of equities because many are not linked to the stock market directly. When you invest in alternative investments, you become part owner of the hard assets associated with the investment. Self directing your IRA into an alternative investments allows for an investor to invest directly into a specific hard asset like rental property, a specific business and even precious metals and receive the income generated from those assets on a tax deferred or tax free basis if done through an IRA or ROTH IRA.
