Self-Directed IRAs

A First Midwest Bank Self-Directed Individual Retirement Account (IRA) puts you in control of your investments. Our Self-Directed IRA investments are not limited to traditional vehicles offered by financial institutions, such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds and CDs. In fact, the most common investment in a truly Self-Directed IRA is real estate. The ability to utilize retirement plan capital to purchase real estate directly offers investors the opportunity to diversify their accounts away from traditional assets.

Unlike many financial institutions that cannot handle the recordkeeping requirements, First Midwest Wealth Management has the experience and capabilities to custody real estate in self-directed IRAs. We also have the ability to blend real estate with other investments in one account for easy recordkeeping and lower plan costs.

For more information about self-directed IRAs, including a complete list of investment options, please contact a First Midwest Wealth Management Officer1 today.
