You want to maximize your retirement fund and have heard about self-directed IRA, but how do you get started?  First things first, a self-directed IRA is a variation on a traditional or Roth IRA where you can hold alternative investments, including real estate, other businesses, and even precious metals that regular IRAs can’t own. In general,  self-directed IRAs are available only through specialized firms that offer self-directed IRA custody services. In today’s episode, we will discuss how to open a self-directed IRA with the guidance of Kaaren Hall, CEO of uDirect IRA Services, LLC.

Kaaren discovered a strategic way to put her 20+ years in mortgage banking, real estate, and property management to use. The solution was an untapped market for both her skills and for investors – self-directed IRAs. Through uDirect IRA, she has guided tens of thousands of Americans through the process of diversifying their investments using self-directed IRAs. Stay tuned and learn more about investing in alternative assets to grow your retirement account.

“It does not have to be complicated. The process is open, fund, invest.”
