Self-Directed IRA Investors Continue to be an Important Source of Financing for Private U.S. Businesses
April 18th, 2018
IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of self-directed IRA LLC and Solo 401(k) Plans, has seen an increase in demand from self-directed investors looking to invest in private U.S. business through private capital markets, such as private equity, crowdfunding, and initial coin offerings. “With almost $9 trillion dollars in IRAs, self-directed IRA investors are playing an important role in fueling the growing private capital markets for U.S. businesses,” stated Adam Bergman, President of the IRA Financial Group.
At least $2.4 trillion was raised privately in the U.S. last year. That widened a gap that emerged in 2011 with the public markets, which raised $2.1 trillion, according to the Wall Street Journal’s analysis of tens of thousands of securities filings and data provider Dealogic.
IRA Financial Group & IRA Financial Trust Company’s self-directed IRA allows investors to invest in private businesses, funds, and offerings for as little as a few hundred dollars a year with no account valuation fees. The primary advantage of using a self-directed IRA to make private business investments is that generally all income and gains associated with the IRA investment grow tax-deferred or tax-free in the case of a Roth IRA.
IRA Financial Group is the market’s leading provider of self-directed retirement plans. IRA Financial Group has helped thousands of clients take back control over their retirement funds while gaining the ability to invest in almost any type of investment, including real estate, cryptocurrency, and private business investments.
