What assets can be contributed to an ira?

Almost any type of investment is allowed within an IRA, including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, annuities, unit investment trusts (ITU), exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and even real estate. For those looking for the best return on their investment, a Best Gold IRA may be the right choice. Do not use Form 8606, Non-Deductible IRAs (PDFPDF), Non-Deductible IRAs, to report contributions to a non-deductible Roth IRA. IRA investments in other unconventional assets, such as corporations and real estate, risk disqualifying the IRA because of prohibited transaction rules that prohibit self-negotiation.
