“SD IRA” stands for self-directed individual retirement account. An SD 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 an SD IRA. To get started, go to this page on our site and download the SD IRA account kit. There will be thorough instructions and several forms to fill out to register an account with Self Directed IRA Services, Inc.
Once you establish an SD 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.
