Allowable Investments for an IRA Account
Which investments are allowed in an IRA or 401(k)? That question can be best answered by rephrasing it to, which investments are NOT allowed in an IRA or 401(k)?
Through IRS Publications and the Internal Revenue Code, the government instructs us on what IRAs and 401(k)s cannot invest in rather than what they can invest in.
- IRA permitted investments - Learn which investments are permitted at Equity Trust and under the Internal Revenue Code.
- Self Directed IRA rules - Information on what your IRA or 401(k) CANNOT invest in and important rules to understand prior to making a self directed IRA or 401(k) investment.
- Common initial questions - Why haven’t you (or your advisors) heard of self directed IRAs before? Can my IRA really invest in these assets? Is self directed IRA investing right for me?
