Amidst the sweet scent of magnolias and the charm of southern hospitality, Georgia brims with opportunities for investment and growth. One magazine has named Georgia its number one state for business for 10 consecutive years. The ranking stems from the state's robust logistics, which include the busiest airport in the world, a major port, and a well-developed transportation infrastructure.

As a resident, living near so much business potential and success might inspire you to get involved. With a Self-Directed IRA in Georgia, you can:

Buy Real Estate

When investing in real estate with a Self-Directed IRA in Georgia, the opportunities are abundant.

Georgia's rich landscapes, with groves of peach trees and picturesque coastal plains, may present an even more compelling reason to live there than its business activity. Residing in Georgia immerses you in natural beauty, whether you live near the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains or in breezy Savannah.

If you invest in Georgia real estate with your Self-Directed IRA (SDIRA), you can enjoy the benefits of owning property in this scenic state while also setting yourself up for potential retirement savings with tax advantages. You can purchase rental properties, fix-and-flip projects, or even invest in raw land for future development. And you're not limited to Georgia real estate, either. Every investable property in the country is potentially yours to explore with a SDIRA.

Invest in Private Businesses

Georgia has more than 1.2 million small businesses. There are startups, established companies, and family-run businesses. Investing in private placements with your SDIRA lets you support companies you believe in and diversify your retirement investing in the process.

If your investments are successful, the potential returns could be significant. And if you're investing in a company in Georgia, you may also have the opportunity to participate in its growth and success firsthand.

Hold Precious Metals

Many investors choose the precious metals market because it typically can provide a protective hedge against economic uncertainty. These metals are considered a store of value, so they can usually retain their worth through market volatility. Georgia SDIRA investors can hold gold, silver, platinum, or palladium and diversify their retirement portfolios with these tangible assets. At Madison Trust, you can buy precious metals from FideliTrade, a Delaware Depository Company, and they will be stored securely in Delaware Depository’s vault.

Establish an IRA LLC

If your retirement investments include rental properties and other transaction-heavy investments, you may wish to gain checkbook control of your SDIRA, which lets you act on investment decisions in real time. When you establish an IRA LLC (also known as a Checkbook IRA), you loosen the SDIRA structure and gain even more freedom.

With a classic Self-Directed IRA, the SDIRA custodian will facilitate transactions at the account owner’s direction. But with an IRA LLC, you become the manager of the LLC and can complete your everyday transactions with no other signature required.

You can form a Self-Directed IRA LLC through our sister company, Broad Financial, in just a few steps. Once your IRA LLC is active, you're free to manage your everyday investment transactions by writing checks and sending wires from your IRA LLC’s dedicated checking account.
