Self-Directed IRAs

A self-directed individual retirement account (SDIRA) is a type of individual retirement account (IRA) that can invest and hold a broad array of alternative investments in addition to traditional assets such as stocks, bonds, cash, money market funds, and mutual funds). These investments generally include, but are not limited to, private placements, limited partnerships, tax lien certificates, real estate, certain precious metals and mineral rights, commodities, etc. The account is administered by a custodian or trustee and is directly managed by the account holder.
Since inception in 1995, Nevada Trust Company® has provided reliable and effective custody and administration services for self-directed IRAs. Additionally, NTC has developed innovative systems to ensure that accounts comply with relevant Internal Revenue Codes while simultaneously maximizing clients’ flexibility in making and managing their self-directed investments. Self-directed IRAs have the same contribution limits as Traditional and Roth IRAs and assets must be held by a qualified custodian. However, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does forbid certain investments to be held in these accounts. Extensive knowledge and experience of self-directed IRAs has translated to clients entrusting NTC with the administration of their SDIRAs, holding the account’s investments for safekeeping, and ensuring compliance with IRS rules.

You (James) are the single most responsive trustee I’ve worked with over the past 25+ years.  I can’t tell you how much that means to me.    — Estate Planning Attorney, R. Lombardy
