019: Investing Thursday: What Is A Self-Directed IRA?

The Danny Randazzo Show: A Podcast All About Money, Mindset, and Investing

What is a self-directed IRA and what do you need to know about it? In this week’s Investing Thursday episode, Danny talks about SDIRAs, why they’re a more flexible investment vehicle than other options, and what you can (and can’t) invest in with your SDIRA funds.

If you want to take more control of your investments than you get with your typical 401k, a self-directed IRA might be particularly interesting to you.
