Other Investments

Contrary to popular belief, the IRS allows a broad spectrum of alternative assets in tax-advantaged plans.

If you can invest in it with your personal money, there’s a great chance you can invest in it with your self-directed IRA, Solo 401(k), or Health Savings Account.



What should you know about investing in other alternative assets?

Oil and Mineral Rights

Purchase the rights, on a per-acre basis, to oil and gas resources beneath a plot of land. Those rights are leased to an oil company that then excavates the actual resources and distributes royalty payments to your account.


Buy actual trees, be they koa trees in Hawaii or any other worthy timber investment.

Air and Space

Invest in industries where literally the sky is the limit! 


Tap the agriculture industry by investing in physical livestock.
