AltoIRA is bringing alternative investments to the mainstream. Alto’s mission is to empower everyday investors to build diversified portfolios of alternative assets, offering Traditional, Roth and SEP IRAs. Although 90% of all US savings is sitting in retirement accounts, less than 2% of that is invested in alternatives.
According to the Investment Company Institute, 43 Million US Households Own an Individual retirement Account (IRA).
IRAs have been one of the fastest growing components of the US retirement market during the past decade. Totaling $9.2 trillion in assets at the end of March 2018, IRA assets represented nearly one-third of the $28.0 trillion US retirement market. Assets held in IRAs have increased on average 10 percent per year over the past 25 years, from $993 billion in 1993.
Millions of Americans use IRAs to save for retirement. An estimated 43.9 million US households, or 35 percent, owned IRAs as of mid-2017. An estimated 35.1 million households owned traditional IRAs, making it the most common type of IRA. A total of 24.9 million households owned Roth IRAs, and 7.6 million US households owned employer-sponsored IRAs such as SEP IRAs, SAR-SEP IRAs, or SIMPLE IRAs.
The affiliation between RedCrow and AltoIRA makes it simple for investors to use retirement savings in Traditional, Roth or SEP IRA accounts to invest in companies listed on RedCrow.
Alto does for alternative IRA investing what TurboTax did for self-filing. Using an IRA for alternative investments has historically been a time-consuming and difficult process. With Alto, investors get a low-cost, easy-to-use platform that offers automated account creation, transfer of assets from an existing custodian and related-party communications (including IRS reporting). Plus round-the-clock customer support and the lowest fees in the industry.
AltoIRA is revolutionizing how America saves for retirement by enabling individuals to invest their IRAs in a diversified portfolio of assets not tied to public markets. Using tax-advantaged IRA savings matches long-term, interest-free investment leverage with long-term assets. Alto offers Traditional, Roth and SEP IRAs, or rollovers from an existing custodian.
