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.

AT A GLANCE

Timber

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! 

Livestock

Tap the agriculture industry by investing in physical livestock.
