Most firms that offer IRA accounts provide a range of options including stocks, bonds and mutual funds.

Some financial institutions will allow alternative investments including rental real estate, mortgages, precious metals and limited partnerships.  These institutions call it a “self-directed IRA.”  These IRA accounts can have higher fees and the custodian will restrict the type of investments offered.
