Small Business/Practice Retirement Plan Providers/Advisors
Self-directed Individual 401(k) and Self-directed IRA Providers
A self-directed 401(k) or a self-directed Roth or traditional IRA allows you to invest in alternative investments such as real estate using the tax-protected and asset-protected money in your retirement accounts.
RocketDollar provides both self-directed 401(k)s and IRAs. You can invest in anything the IRS allows just by writing a check. Fees are $360 to set-up and then $15/month ($180/year).
My401 provides self-directed 401(k)s. You can invest in anything the IRS allows just by writing a check. Fees are $499 to set-up and then $99-349/year depending on level of service needed.
If you do not need the self-directed feature, you can open an individual 401(k) at the typical low cost brokerages such as Vanguard, Fidelity, Schwab, or eTrade. More details at this post.
Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are my favorite investing account due to their triple-tax-free nature.
Lively is a high-quality, low-cost HSA provider. You can open an account directly with Lively or you can roll money over once a year from your employer’s chosen HSA provider. You can invest the money for the long-term in low-cost, index mutual funds.
