How to Invest Retirement Funds Today

Investing for retirement is a gargantuan opportunity for all of us to align our financial futures with the planet’s. After all, what is money without a viable habitat to live in? In fact, American’s hold approximately 14 trillion dollars of investable capital[1] to shape the world’s future with IRA accounts alone! As we need over $5 trillion of investment into climate solutions to stave off the worst consequences of climate change, investing with your retirement funds provides a channel to create meaningful impact and diversify your portfolio (Lih Yi, 2021) . If you don’t yet have a retirement plan, consider investing in climate solutions and alternative assets. 
While traditional, Roth, SEP, and other IRAs can all be “self-directed” (meaning you choose what to invest in), most brokerages and custodians don’t allow investments in unregistered securities, frequently referred to as “alternative assets.” So, a class of companies has sprung up specifically designed to allow you to have an IRA that can invest and hold alternative assets, also commonly referred to as a Self-Directed IRA (SDIRA).
Raise Green is committed to providing just about anyone with a platform to invest in climate solution company private securities, historically often only available to institutional and high-net worth investors. As a result, we’re proud to announce that we are now offering a streamlined digital process to deploy retirement monies by partnering with Alto IRA. Alto IRA specializes in alternative assets, leveraging the power and ease of technology rather than the myriad of paperwork and time to operationally execute transactions in this space. If you don’t have a Self-Directed IRA provider or are interested in exploring a new provider, they might just be the best next step for you!
