Whether you were an early adopter or are new to self-directed IRAs, there is no question the strategy is growing in popularity.
You might be seeing more online ads for IRA facilitators or warnings about being careful when screening offers from self-directed IRA promoters.
You may be hearing more about self-directed 401(k) and the use of terms such as ‘custodian’ and ‘administrator’ could seem to be almost interchangeable.
The fact is that the terms aren’t interchangeable. The two types of IRA providers offer different services and follow different guidelines. Equity Trust Company, for example, is an IRA custodian.
