Self-Directed IRA for Individuals

Did you know that the term “Self-Directed IRA” is just a marketing term?

The IRS defines any type of IRA as a trust. Almost anything a trust can do, your Self-Directed IRA can do, too! The IRS has never published a list of investments that we CAN buy with a Self-Directed IRA. They have simply listed the items we CANNOT buy:

  • Self-Directed IRA Basicslife insurance policies
  • collectibles (including works of art, gems, rugs, antiques, stamps and alcoholic beverages)
  • certain metals and coins (see IRC 408[m][3] for some exceptions)
  • stock in an S corporation

How does it work?

  • open a Kingdom Trust Self-Directed IRA
  • add money to your IRA via a transfer, a rollover or a contribution
  • tell us what you want to purchase

With a Self-Directed IRA, you can

  • purchase rental property
  • loan money to a startup company
  • invest in green energy
  • hold precious metals like gold and silver bullion
  • participate in crowdfunding opportunities
  • structure your account via a Single-Member LLC
  • and so much more!

Keep in mind that even though a Self-Directed IRA for individuals provides enormous flexibility, there are certain rules you must follow:

  • Your IRA cannot transact or invest with yourself or your spouse. This means your Self-Directed IRA cannot invest in anything that will directly benefit you today. The benefits are to remain in your IRA.
  • Your IRA cannot transact or invest with your parents, grandparents or great grandparents.
  • Your IRA cannot transact or invest with your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren or their spouses.
