You, Your Best Friend, and Your Self-Directed IRA: Refer a Friend Program
Written By: Daniel Gleich
Supportive. Trustworthy. Fun. Humorous. Honest. These are just a few qualities that can be used to describe a best friend. If you are fortunate to have someone in your life who embodies these qualities, you may want to keep in mind that National Best Friend Day is on June 8.
Think about how you can show appreciation to your best friend and give a gift that can last a lifetime. Consider giving your best friend the gift of being able to build wealth and invest in alternative assets such as real estate, precious metals, promissory notes, private businesses, and more in a Self-Directed IRA.
Why are Self-Directed IRAs Not as Well Known?
It may seem that Self-Directed IRAs are a well-guarded secret, known only to the savviest of investors. This is because the majority of Americans hold their IRAs in large brokerage houses that typically allow their account holders to invest their IRAs only in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. In general, brokerage houses do not accommodate alternative investments due to the administrative tasks involved and their loss in commission. This results in Self-Directed IRAs, their benefits, and alternative investment opportunities being widely unknown.
This is where you come in. Madison Trust needs your help to spread the word about self-directed investing! We created our Refer-a-Friend Program so you can easily earn $100 and help your friend(s) grow their retirement savings – that's a win-win!
Advantages of a Self-Directed IRA (SDIRA)
Diversify Your Portfolio
You have the opportunity to invest your retirement funds in assets inaccessible to standard IRAs such as real estate, promissory notes, private businesses, precious metals, and more.
You can hedge against the volatile stock market and invest in assets that have a steadier and more reliable revenue stream.
Control of Investments
You instruct Madison Trust to invest your IRA funds directly in the asset of your choice. Account holders typically invest in a variety of assets that they are familiar with.
