Forbes Finance Council Article Talks About Challenges for Borrowers and Savers Regarding Interest Rates, Inflation Woes, and the Benefits of Taking a Long-Term Approach to Retirement Savings with a Self-Directed IRA

ROSELAND, NJ, July 28, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Jaime Raskulinecz, founder and CEO of Next Generation Services, LLC, has published an article in the Forbes Finance Council column titled, “How Alternatives Help Investors Avoid the Interest-Rate Roller Coaster.” In it, she shared the challenges of recent interest rate fluctuations on both sides of financial transactions, concerns about inflation, and how investments in alternative assets help account owners adopt a long-term investing strategy through a self-directed IRA.

Raskulinecz—an official member of the Forbes Finance Council—noted the downsides of chasing attractive short-term interest rates and dealing with an unpredictable stock market.

“Alternative assets do not correlate directly with the stock market, so their value tends not to fluctuate with every market disruption the way stocks do. Including them in a self-directed individual retirement account enables investors to create a hedge against ongoing market volatility, diversify their portfolios, and take advantage of investing opportunities that arise or align with the account owner’s values or interests.”
