Tran had acquired a shopping center with 2 other investors using his own self-directed IRA fund as down payment. “It’s straightforward to purchase a property without a loan using money from self-directed IRA account,” David said, “It’s more difficult to obtain a new loan at 6.18% interest to purchase when the borrowing entity is a self-directed IRA account.” The CIA wanted to demonstrate he could assist self-directed IRA investors to maximize leverage at a low interest rate by doing it first with his own self-directed IRA money.
