What is a Self-Directed Brokerage Account?
An SDBA, or Self-Directed Brokerage Account, is a window inside a company-sponsored retirement account (401(k), 403(b), 457, etc.) that gives participants the freedom and ﬂexibility to step outside of their traditional core investment choices.
Why Use the SDBA Option?
In addition to other investments like stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), you can benefit from a professionally managed retirement account. Your 401(k) or 403(b) account can potentially increase your chances to protect you in down markets and maximize your earnings during good years.
