During this presentation, Scott Maurer of Advanta IRA will go over how a self-directed IRA is different from a self-directed 401k plan. There are many similarities between these types of accounts when it comes to investing in alternative assets, like real estate, private notes, LLCs, etc. Many people are familiar with some of the rules of these accounts, but there are key differences in these two types of accounts not merely related to how much you can contribute to the account in a given year.
Most individuals who are self-employed do not realize the benefits that a self-directed 401k account can offer them over a self-directed IRA, and this class is designed to highlight those key benefits. Scott will also cover some of the basics of both types of accounts to get everyone on the same page and understanding what it means to self-direct your retirement account. We will also cover a few case studies to highlight the differences when it comes to administering these accounts and will even touch on an individual being able to start a new business using retirement dollars.
