Self Directed Brokerage Account
The Self-Directed Brokerage Account (SDBA)
The SDBA or a "brokerage window" is a choice on eligible employer sponsored retirement plans that offers investment choices such as mutual funds, stocks, bonds, and access to fiduciary investment advice through a registered investment advisor.
Plans that offer the SDBA option provide the opportunity for employees to take full control of a portion of their current retirement account by linking it to the existing core account. In doing so, participants expand the range of investment choices beyond the Core investments and will have access to the same management style as High Net worth Investors, Institutions and Foundations.
SDBAs are currently the most underutilized investment options in 401(k), 403(b), and 457 accounts. However, this option should be used by investors who are working with a professional Investment Advisor.
At Alpine Financial Partners, through Cetera Advisors, LLC., we partner with a Third Party Money Manager to help you take control of your retirement through your SDBA. The Pacific Financial Group takes a unique approach to investing through their SEC registered, actively managed portfolios. Their goal is to do their best to achieve risk appropriate returns for you the client.
