Securities and Exchange Commission and state securities regulators have warned investors of the potential for fraud in these investments, saying they have investigated numerous cases where self-directed IRAs were used to build credibility for investment schemes.Self-directed IRAs, on the other hand, allow investors to put money into a wider range of assets – real estate, promissory notes, private placement securities and other options that may promise higher returns but also more risk.
