Explore New Opportunities & Diversify Your Portfolio through Alternative Investments
Alternative investments differ from more traditional forms of investments such as shares, stocks or CDs that you probably already have and are used to hearing about. Often regarded as something only beneficial for the über wealthy, alternative investments are shaking off financial stereotypes and enabling people with different income levels to consider new risk levels and profit potential.
Georgetown Trust offers a variety of alternative investment opportunities for you to choose from. While each has a number of benefits, it's up to you to decide which type of alternative investment is the best for your portfolio to provide a comfortable risk level and immediate income or liquidity.
Self-Directed IRAAn IRA, or individual retirement account, is the most common way to financially prepare for retirement. If it is not self-directed, however, your IRA might be making investments you don't necessarily approve of, or it could be resulting in high management fees that are eating away at your profit and funds for retirement. An alternative is to transfer your IRA offshore, which is legal in the United States, and turn the investment into an LLC. This gives you greater freedom over your assets and the flexibility to invest your retirement funds as you see fit. >> Learn More
