KEY POINTS

What is a SDIRA? Is it worth it? Can it be done in Kenya for Kenyans?

Financial planning is a very integral part of life. This is because, all through the lifetime of any human being, money must be spent to keep body and soul together.

Without a doubt, every individual has to pay for food, water, drinks, clothes, mortgage, children’s fees, family expenses, etc.

All these expenses are reoccurring in the life of man and he has no choice but to attend to them. However, the dilemma now is that man sometimes has limited income and numerous expenses.

Honestly speaking, it takes a disciplined human being to set aside a regular amount from the limited income available to savings and investments.

The real truth here is that having a portfolio of investments is very essential for all human beings. This is because incomes are not guaranteed for a lifetime, as jobs can be lost at any given time. When an individual is faced with such situations, he or she has the opportunity to fall back on prior investments.

Additionally, failure to invest now is simply a recipe for future disasters as expenses are subject to an upward increase.

Moreover, suffering at a later age, as a result of failing to invest is most likely promised, as research has reported that people would squander their income at a younger age and make no investments are more likely to learn the hard way.

When should you start planning for your Retirement?

This is a very salient question that most people ask during financial seminars and training. Also, it’s important to get this right from the beginning to avoid future mistakes.

A wise man once stated that smart individual plans, for their retirement the very first day they receive their first pay. Financial experts at theentrustgroup.com/ have more details on investment options.

Early planning for your retirement is essential because nothing is promised as management can decide to fire any employee of their choice. Also, the company might get into problems and not be able to meet their financial obligations as when due.

This is why it’s important to wash your clothes when there’s still power except of course you are willing to try the manual method.

What’s an SDIRA?

SDIRA is the short form of a Self-Directed Individual Savings account, and its unique feature is that it is managed by the owner of the account but must be administered by a trustee or custodian.

Another merit of this package is that it is capable of housing various investments, which is not normally permitted under Individual Savings Account (IRA).

However, this unique feature benefits savvy investors who have financial knowledge of investment options available and can optimize its usage to their advantage. There’s also a tax advantage benefit inherent in this type of investment.

Why should SDIRA be your choice?

Most investment options are tied to the stock market and the yield on such investments is sometimes slow and subject to various stock market regulations.

SDIRA investments give the opportunity to subscribe to different investment objectives at once. This means that an investor can decide to invest in securities that accrue both short- and long-term benefits. Have you ever heard of investment options that allow an individual to make choices based on their environmental preference?

SDIRA gives investors the choice to invest in environmentally conscious companies and if that rocks your boat, an individual can opt-in. It gets even better as investors can decide to use their funds to support female business or businesses that the investor has acquired some professional expertise in.

It’s worthy of note to state that saving in an employer-enabled retirement plan does not limit your chance of investing in SDIRA. Another benefit is that when an individual is declared bankrupt, the assets saved in an SDIRA account are exempted from being liquidated.

Unlike the IRA, the investor using the SDIRA is in control as he or she wears the thinking cap and decides what way the investments should go.

Furthermore, investments can be rolled over from other IRAs at no extra cost and this does not change the yearly contribution limit. Savvy investors are already taking advantage of this platform to build for themselves a robust future.

Saving is a form of delivering oneself from poverty while investing the money saved in the right channel sets an individual on the road to financial freedom.

Without a doubt, attaining financial freedom exempts one from future hardship. However, investors should only put their funds in investment opportunities that are legal and ethical.

Engaging in get-rich-quick- scams or money doubling exercises has a disastrous consequence.
