A self directed IRA is simply an IRA that allows the account holder to choose investments, including “alternative” assets like real estate, precious metals, private lending, and private equity. Many types of accounts (Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, HSA, Individual 401(k), SEP IRA, or SIMPLE IRA) can be a self directed. The term self directed IRA (self managed IRA) is a descriptive term, not an IRS term.
