Genuine Self-Direction

Genuine self-direction is the freedom to invest your IRA and 401(k) funds in what you know.™ If you seek an alternative to stock, bond, and mutual fund retirement assets, genuine self-direction may be right for you.

American Pension Services' self-directed IRAs and 401(k)s are equipped with every available flexibility allowing account owners the freedom to invest in anything allowed by law. American Pension administers a variety of self-directed retirement plans including:





Technically all retirement plans can be self-directed they are however limited (by the plan provider) to the investments sold by the plan provider. In contrast American Pension Services does not recommend, endorse, or sell investments – APS is a neutral third-party administrator. With stringent neutrality APS protects the account owner's freedom to invest their retirement in what makes the most sense to them.

The IRS allows a wide range of traditional and non-traditional investments in retirement plans. These investments include but are not limited to; Real Estate, Options, IPO Stocks, Trust Deed Notes, Leases, Closely Held Stock, Promissory Notes, Tax Lien Certificates, Oil and Gas Leases, Stocks & Bonds, LLCs, Coins, Sales Contracts, and more.
