Is it possible to make private stock investments in a retirement account? Not only is it possible, says American IRA—but easier than many investors think.

ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, January 11, 2023/ / -- When most investors think of stock investments, it refers to the public stock market. Yet some of the greatest investment opportunities of all time came when businesses were still in startup modes, selling stock to only private investors. That’s the basis behind a recent post at American IRA, where the Self-Directed IRA administration firm recently pointed out how easy it can be to handle private company investing within a retirement account—assuming the investor sets up the account the proper way.

American IRA began the post by addressing the “basics” of private company investing within a Self-Directed IRA. This included a note of American IRA’s definition of private company investing: “Private company investing is when you purchase stocks in a private, not publicly held, company.”


Many people earned fortunes by making key investments earlier in the lifecycle of a company—when the company was still launching and not yet listed on public exchanges. However, American IRA notes that private company investing is like any other form of legitimate investing—and fraught with risk. And since a Self-Directed IRA arrangement is one in which the investor does not seek out financial advice from a Self-Directed IRA administration firm, it is up to the investor’s discretion as to which companies to invest in—and when.

American IRA further dove into how private company investing can work within a Self-Directed IRA account. In the post, American IRA explained the process of investing in Self-Directed IRAs when directing a Self-Directed IRA custodian to carry out the purchase of private company stock on the investor’s behalf. It’s a simple and straightforward process but will require having a Self-Directed IRA properly set up.

Finally, American IRA wrapped up the post by talking about the potential advantages of private company investing, such as having a diversified portfolio that isn’t necessarily reliant on what’s happening in the public stock market. That’s one key driver of interest in Self-Directed IRAs.
