IRA Investment Options
You have an IRA. You already know about the tax benefits, age requirements for distributions and the interest that is earned each year. You may not be aware that there are many ways that you can invest your IRA to earn more of a return than you are currently receiving. Your bank or financial institution that manages your IRA is probably investing in the most common types of securities. There are other investments that you could be making that can increase your wealth to levels that you would never reach with low interest returns.
Basic Ways to Invest a Traditional or Roth IRA
Regardless of your current age, it is never too late to start investing your money more wisely. Banks and financial institutions have no trouble earning a profit on income and you should be no different. The basics of IRA investing include low risk investments that produce small returns that are guaranteed according to current interest rates.
Basic ways include:
• Certificates of Deposit or CDs
• Mutual Funds
• Savings Accounts
• ETF or Target Date Funds
• Treasury Bonds
• Gold, Silver or Platinum Coins Minted by the U.S. Treasury
Advanced Ways to Invest a Traditional or Roth IRA
When you grow tired of making investments that produce small returns, you can venture out into more risky investments. The stock market is a complex area that is slightly deceptive to the uninformed trader. The most successful traders understand the risks versus rewards and capitalize on market trends or speculations. Since the stock market is a bigger gamble, you may be feeling lucky and want to invest your IRA in advanced ways.
Advanced ways include:
• Gold and Silver ETFs
• International Global Stock Funds
• Stock Index Funds
• Strategic Bond Funds
• Sector Funds
Alternative High Growth IRA Investment Options
Most basic investments are FDIC insured and therefore payout little interest. You cannot expect the government to grow your retirement account. Savvy investors are learning new ways to grow their IRAs to levels that basic and advanced investing could never reach. The problem with IRA accounts is that they are managed by custodians that give you limited investment options. Investors that achieve wealth diversify into markets that are not offered by standard IRA custodians. One of the ways to increase your earnings is by moving your IRA, 401(k) or 403(b) to a self directed IRA. This option allows you full control over how and where your retirement funds are invested.
Alternative investments include:
• Tax Lien Certificates
• Real Estate Rental Properties
• Commercial Properties
• Vacant Land
• Apartments, Duplexes and Condominiums
