We specialize exclusively in the non-traditional to grant access to the alternative investment world. Once your account is funded, a world of opportunity is at your fingertips.
Limited Liability Company (LLC)
LLCs are often used in one of two ways:
- Single Member LLC: In this instance, the single member is usually an individual who controls the investments made by the LLC. Single member LLCs have become an investment choice for investors due to their flexibility. In most cases, the LLC is owned 100% by the retirement account.
- Multi-Member LLC: A multi-member LLC exists when the LLC has a membership interest greater than one individual or company. When structured appropriately, investing into a multi-member LLC can allow the investors additional buying power and investment opportunities by combining investment capital from many sources.
If an IRA is investing into an LLC, the account owner must be aware that the investments made in an LLC must adhere to the same rules regarding prohibited transactions and prohibited investment classes as investments made directly through a custodian.

The property can be rented to offset costs and increase value if the restrictions surrounding prohibited transactions are observed.
The property can be improved upon if the restrictions surrounding prohibited transactions are observed. If the property is being ‘flipped’, the account owner may need to be aware of potentially triggering UBIT. If real estate is debt financed using a non-recourse loan, the account owner may need to be aware of potentially owing UDFI.
Since it can be easier to encounter a prohibited transaction when investing into private companies, the IRA owner must be aware of these rules and regulations to avoid a potential distribution of the assets.
Market Linked CDs
The terms of a note, defined by the lender and borrower, should contain all terms of the loan and repayment. Some of those terms cover items like: the principal amount, interest owed, the parties involved with the note, the date, the terms of repayment, the payment schedule, and the maturity date.
Sometimes, provisions are included concerning the payee’s rights in the event of a default, which may include foreclosure of the borrower’s assets. Provident Trust Group does not review, vet or set the terms of promissory notes that are held in client accounts. Promissory notes may be secured, or unsecured:
- Secured promissory notes indicate that the lender would receive the previously-agreed upon asset or property as collateral for the note (i.e. shares of a company or property) should the borrower default on the note.
- Unsecured promissory notes do not provide that level of protection. Should the borrower default on the note, the issuer does not have an opportunity to claim assets specified within the note, without additional legal action.

The IRS only states what you can’t do. There is a world of opportunity available to you.
