A New World Of Opportunity
The IRS prohibits very few things within your retirement account. The major restrictions include most collectibles, some types of insurance, self-dealing, and real estate for your personal use (real estate can be converted to personal use at retirement and when it has been taken as a distribution). Most of the investment restrictions you have run into are imposed not by legislation but by the IRA Custodian or plan administrator. Unfortunately this is often for their own benefit: When an IRA Custodian also is in the business of selling investments the potential for conflict is clear.

Of course, we also can help you invest domestically. You never have to worry about a conflict of interest, because Sovereign International is a fee-only IRA consultant, and we do not earn compensation from any investment products or companies.
