American IRA Discusses How to Utilize Private Lending in a Self-Directed IRA for Retirement

ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / March 18, 2020 / Is private lending a good way to build retirement wealth? That’s the question posed at a recent blog at American IRA’s website. American IRA, a Self-Directed IRA administration firm based on North Carolina, recently released a guide to using private lending in a Self-Directed IRA.

As the post notes, private lending and private notes are two ways of generating passive income within an IRA. Because of the Self-Directed IRA’s freedoms-which includes investing in nontraditional retirement assets such as private notes and real estate-investors can use these as part of a retirement portfolio to enjoy the tax protections of an IRA. To those with experience in private lending, the possibilities of using private lending for retirement funds can be an enticing way to save for the long-term.

In the guide, American IRA noted that one of the chief reasons to utilize a Self-Directed IRA and private loans is to include it as part of a diversified portfolio. Too often, the post notes, investors rely upon diversification within one asset class, usually the stock market. But when making effective loans in a reliable way through a Self-Directed IRA, investors can gain access to a wider portfolio that isn’t necessarily dependent on the individual turns of the stock market.

“With this post, we wanted to show people that there’s more than just the stock market,” said Jim Hitt of American IRA. “Private notes and private lending are two powerful ways to build wealth. They’re answers for people who have capital on hand but aren’t sure what to do with it to ensure that their money continues to make money. But with well-placed loans, investors can continue to generate money on a passive basis.”

The post notes that due diligence is important in using a Self-Directed IRA for private lending, as no type of investment is without its risks.
