Only a novice in the industry,
Adam Sypniewski witnessed the benefits of a self-directed IRA in
the year 2008. It was the time when investors started pulling their
investments from public securities due to the economic downturn.
The turn of events shed light on the industry given its leniency
over asset diversification in terms of investment. Now,
Adam is a senior member of the
business development team at Midland IRA, with over 10 years of
experience in alternative investments and custody solutions
for capital raising advisers,
investors, and other financial service providers. On this episode,
he shares what is a self-directed IRA, its difference from a
traditional IRA, its limitations and qualifications, and how
capital raisers can leverage this industry.
