What is self-directed retirement investing?

Typically when you look to invest your retirement funds, you will be given a choice of various stocks and market related products. But what happens if you don’t want to bet your retirement on the stock market? Do you have any options to take control of your money and invest  in assets that you personally know and understand? The answer is yes. With a self-directed IRA or Solo 401(k), you can invest your retirement funds in virtually any asset.
