Methods for Funding an Asset

Non-Recourse Loan 

A non-recourse loan is a method to secure more capital for investments when there is little money in an IRA. A non-recourse loan allows the borrower to leverage their investments, but the lender only lends against the asset purchased by the debt. Financing through a non-recourse loan assures that in the event of default, the lender will not be able to seize any other assets held by the borrower. 


Crowdfunding is a method for raising money for investment opportunities that range from start-ups to debt-financing opportunities, among many others. 

Utilizing crowdfunding makes investing easier for investors since the initial investments can have a wide range from $20 to $10,000 to begin. 

Direct Purchase with IRA Funds  

Direct purchase with IRA funds is the preferred method of investing for self-directed investors. It only requires the funds that are already in the IRA to get started and directly purchase an asset.
