Self-directed IRA Professionals Got the Inside Scoop…

Self-directed IRA Professionals Learned New Insights on Cybersecurity, Crowdfunding and the Fiduciary Rule at the RITA Conference in Las Vegas, October 22-23, 2015. You can read some highlights below.

The Self-directed IRA market increased approximately 5 percent over last year according to Mary Mohr, Executive Director. The total size of the IRA market is $7.4 trillion based on research from the Investment Company Institute.

Self-directed IRA’s are becoming more and more popular retirement savings vehicles and for some investors– a very smart solution. One speaker and former government employee, who served on the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pension (HELP) Committee, shared how he discovered self-directed IRA’s from his Uncle who successfully invested in tax liens with his IRA. With the recent swings in the stock market, savers and investors want diversification within their retirement assets.

Timely topics and panel discussions directly with the regulators included crowdfunding and the re-proposed fiduciary rule, now known as the “Best Interest Contract.”
