The Self-Directed Brokerage Account (SDBA)

Self Directed Brokerage Account (SDBA) management is ideal for participants of 401(k), 403(b), or 457 accounts. The relationship established by the The Pacific Financial Group give advisors access to nearly every retirement platform in the country. We accept full fiduciary responsibility and provide a legal safe harbor as defined by the applicable sections of the ERISA federal retirement law and the Internal Revenue Service Code.

We offer a combination of three unique investment management strategies. All options use diversified asset allocation strategies to control risk without inhibiting investment flexibility. Your representative, along with our portfolio management team, determines which of the various options should be offered based on the goals, objectives, risk tolerance, needs, and time frame of the participants.

Our retirement account management is ideal for a wide range of clients. Designed for both a participant who is just beginning to save for retirement as well as a participant with an established account who is preparing to retire.

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 the broker/dealer Cetera Advisors, LLC., we are able to partner with this Institutional Third Party Money Manager to help you take control of your retirement in your 401(k) with a SDBA.  The Pacific Financial Group takes a three strategy approach that includes Market Movement, Dynamic and Active Alternative Strategies. It is through the combination of three unique investment management strategies/styles that they can achieve greater diversification, execute more effective risk management and potentially enhance investor returns.
