A self-directed IRA makes it easier to diversify retirement funds by allowing you to invest in alternative assets – real estate, physical commodities, limited partnerships, etc. You have more control of your investment choices versus other IRAs that may limit you to stocks, bonds or mutual funds.

PeerStreet offers investors options for investing on the platform through a self-directed IRA. To get started, visit the self-directed IRA page on our website. There will be thorough instructions and several forms to fill out to register an account with STRATA Trust Company.

Once you establish a self-directed IRA account, follow the instructions for funding the account or transferring a portion, or the entirety of, an existing retirement account to your PeerStreet account.
