PENSCO Trust Company holds alternative assets like private equity, real estate, notes and other non-exchange assets in IRA accounts. The company serves individuals, professional investment advisers and crowdfunding platforms. Its sole responsibility is to determine if an investment can be held in a self-directed IRA, not to determine the merit of any particular investment, according to PENSCO Trust Company.
Real estate investors can invest in property for long-term appreciation or rental income, or they can flip the property for an immediate profit. Private equity investors can search the PENSCO Marketplace for suitable investments. Promissory notes, including trust deeds and mortgage notes, are great investments, reports PENSCO Trust Company. They have provided greater yields than traditional IRA investments, such as stocks, in the past.
