As the world economy behaves like an elevator,and the global markets react to this,millions of people,including terrified baby boomers,are crossing their fingers that their retirement accounts stay profitable rather than face the bleak,real possibility of disastrous results.
Their fear is not unwarranted. With the realistic thought that Social Security is positioned to be unreliable,the continued volatility of the US stock market is a frightening crap shoot for those counting on those funds to enhance their golden years. In fact,just last week was the worst week for Wall Street in 10 years.
The IRA's existence came to be with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) The whole idea was to transfer the responsibility from employer to employee. While some pension funds were being mismanaged,Congress passed this from companies to the individual.
While many Americans are aware of IRA's and other self directed retirement accounts,only a handful are aware that they have freedom and choice when it comes to managing their retirement accounts.
Most of the so-called money managers never tell their clients about the many options available to them,opting only to steer them towards their own investments that they offer. Traditionally this has been limited to mutual funds,bonds and stocks.
As millions of the baby boomers approach their retirement,pensions drying up and Social Security being a veritable coin toss,you must provide for yourself!
Buying real estate,especially internationally,is one of the best options. One can buy a condo on the powdery white sands of the Riviera Maya and the derived income goes back into the IRA as pure profit. These are great tools to ensure a happy and profitable future and retirement.
All that is required is a simple custodian to custodian transfer. A custodian is much like a depository or bank which you,the individual,direct to make the investment for you.
