Believe me, after 16 years in the self-directed IRA industry, I’ve heard it all: the good, the bad, and the downright weird of self-directed IRA companies. I often talk to account holders and pick their brain on how they went about finding the right custodian. Usually they have a story about what went wrong and it's exactly why I remain committed to the promise of Self-Directed IRAs (SDIRA). I believe that everyone has the right to make their own investment decisions, and pay affordable rates, while receiving best-in-class service. I also believe passionately in the power of knowledge and making what seems complex simple.
