The IRS requires a qualified custodian to hold IRA assets on behalf of the IRA owner. As a self-directed IRA custodian, Peak Trust Company (PTC) is equipped to handle the complexities of the documentation and requirements needed for alternative investments as well as all marketable securities.
What is a self-directed IRA?
An IRA is an Individual Retirement Account, allowing individuals to put aside money for retirement and offering alternative investments for retirement savings. “Self-directed” IRAs allow you as the individual account owner, to have control over choosing and directing your investments. Self-Directed IRA accounts provide you alternative assets, including real estate, private company stock, limited partnerships, limited liability companies, notes, and many others.
As an owner of a self-directed IRA it is your responsibility to investigate each and every investment you select and/or hold within your IRA. Consult adequate tax, legal, or investment professionals for assistance and make sure you understand what you are investing in.
