Webinar Recording: Using Your IRA to Make Alternative Investments


Joe DiDomenico, Founder of WealthFlex, and Tim Berry,  Tax Attorney & Self-Directed IRA Specialist, recently discussed IRS rules and regulations for IRAs and how alternatives can be eligible IRA investments.

Joe and Tim dive down the rabbit hole of IRAs and alternative investments, answering some of the most important questions. During the webinar, Tim asked, “Where do most of us get our financial information? Cramer? Motley Fool? Backyard barbeques? How many people even know about alternative investments?” He followed that up with the statement, “To be a bit crass, how many people are paid to promote alternative investments? The sad fact is that most people just blindly follow the advice of their local banker or mutual fund salesperson. Since the bank or mutual fund salesperson doesn’t get paid to talk about alternative investments they don’t talk about them.”

Joe and Tim also touched on several points including:

At Yieldstreet, we are proud of our investor-first approach to generating income. So when we learned that our investors were looking for an easier, tax-efficient way to invest with Yieldstreet using their retirement funds, we listened. We believe that investing with retirement funds should be flexible, simple, and transparent.  We’ve created a seamless way for individuals to invest in Yieldstreet investments with their IRA.
