The Best Investments for Roth IRAs

Jun 15, 2008
Roth IRAs significantly differ from traditional IRAs, however the best investments for Roth IRAs also differ. A traditional IRA offers limited options for investing your money, for saving, and for using your money.

The Roth IRA is for people who choose to have their investment pre-taxed in hopes that their tax bracket will rise, not lower, after retirement. This kind of IRA also requires the desire to take aggressive risks.

Aggressive investing is best for young people that anticipate at least ten years growth before cashing the IRA in. Investment limits are minimal and keeps the direct and indirect benefits directed away from you.

For those who don't understand investments but would like to move your IRA cash into something that will build equity much quicker than the average bank will, the best decision for your Roth IRA is a diversified mutual fund. A diversified mutual fund is a share of a pre-diversified stock pool, which will result in the an overall lower risk that will keep yielding and growing at a high rate.

Another of the best Roth IRA investments you can make is real estate. Few realize that the rules for IRAs are set up so that you can purchase real estate to include in your IRA portfolio. A common choice: purchasing your retirement home now with IRA cash, then renting it out until you're ready to retire and move in. This transaction will have to be set up through a custodial account. Work with an IRA firm or counselor who has done this before because an error in transacting the deal can result in huge penalties from the IRS.

A venture capital investment fund within your Roth IRA account allows you to take a direct interest in the work your money is doing. You can make small or large investments in new and established companies. Even though this is a high risk venture, being able to watch what your money is doing gives you a great deal of satisfaction.

You should just let your bank handle your IRA account if you are close to retirement. As your IRA reaches maturity, your bank will know the right things to invest your funds in, such as low-risk bonds.

When investing with a Roth IRA, limits are only in your mind. The best Roth IRA investments are the ones that are appropriate to your fund's age, to your interests, and to the amount of cash you have right now to sink into it. Whatever your dreams, your well-invested IRA can help you get there.
