ASHEVILLE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / March 3, 2021 / What does compound interest have to do with a Self-Directed IRA? That is the question recently posed at American IRA's blog. In the post, American IRA, a North Carolina-based Self-Directed IRA administration firm, dealt with the basic concept of compound interest. It also explored the various functions of the Self-Directed IRA, exploring how an investor aware of compounding returns might think about a Self-Directed IRA.

One important point, according to the post, is that compounding returns can happen in many ways. Investors may get compounding returns by continuing to put funds aside in the stock market. Other investors might get compounding returns by accepting rent checks on a piece of real estate and putting that profit back into investments. But the basic idea is simple: as money in an account grows, that money can be re-invested, thereby earning more opportunities as time goes on.

Investors can approach these returns in different ways. In some cases, investors think about compounding returns through dividends, which can then be reinvested to buy more stock-similar to a real estate arrangement in which an investor reinvests profit into other properties. Within a Self-Directed IRA, an investor has the option of making multiple types of investments, diversifying a portfolio.

'Investors think about compounding returns especially with retirement accounts,' said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. 'That's why this article is so important. It highlights one of the most important concepts in investing. And it explains how a Self-Directed IRA can help protect the returns that an investor receives in their IRA when they make the right investments. With a Self-Directed IRA, they have the right to choose these investments.'

The post explains how Self-Directed IRAs have a broad appeal because of the different types of investments available through a Self-Directed IRA, giving retirement investors a convenient tool for investing across nontraditional asset classes.
