How is one account being managed versus the other? Is one hand washing the other?

Through our platform, you can easily start saving for retirement by making contributions from your checking account. Per the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), you can contribute $5,500 to your account per year (or $6,500 if you are older than 50). The funds that you put into the account are tax-deductible; so, the IRS will grant a credit to you, making your IRA contributions effectively before-tax. Your account will grow tax-deferred--that is, you will not pay taxes on any earnings. Once you make a retirement withdrawal after age 591/2, they are taxed as ordinary income without penalty.Rollover IRADo you have 401(k)'s scattered across previous employers? Rollover IRA's allow you to combine 401(k)'s that you may have had at previous employers into one account. By doing this, it allows you to maintain the tax-deferred status from your 401(k), without a penalty. In addition, as your continue to save for retirement and your account size grows, you can take advantage of our fee breakpoints. From an account management and logistics standpoint, the Rollover IRA is essentially the same thing as a Traditional IRA.ROTH IRAMany Hedgeable clients take advantage of a Roth IRA, in addition to a Traditional IRA. Unlike a Traditional IRA, contributions to ROTH IRA's go in after-tax, and are withdrawn tax-free (as long as they are a qualified retirement distributions after age 591/2). This tax-free growth can be compelling for younger clients that want to take advantage of longer time horizons for their retirement. In addition, many clients utilize ROTH conversions, a strategy that recognizes taxes in a Traditional IRA immediately and moves the proceeds to a ROTH IRA. Please consult your tax advisor to determine if ROTH conversions are appropriate for you.Solo 401(k)Did you know that you don’t have to work for a large company to have a 401(k) plan? It is true. Called a Solo or Individual 401(k), this account type allows you and a spouse to take advantage of the same 401(k) rules that employees of large organizations can. In fact, it is one of the most popular Hedgeable account types, and Hedgeable remains the only major digital wealth manager that offers these account types. There are only about 750,000 401(k) plans in America, yet there are over 25 Million sole proprietorships and single member LLCs in America. You can be a young doctor, dentist, lawyer, accountant, painter, landscaper, consultant, recruiter, and dozens of other occupations and get a Solo 401(k) setup. Regardless of professional title, if you are a "1099 employee" or if you own your own business, you may be eligible to open up a personal 401(k). Unlike SEP IRA's, Solo 401(k)'s can be set up to allow loans from the plan.For these plans, contributions are made by the employee and the employer (even though you are effectively both, since you own your own business). Just like Traditional 401(k)'s, employee contributions are limited to $18,000 (or $24,000 if you are older than 50). Employer's can make non-elective contributions up to 25% or compensation, or as defined by your plan. Please consult your tax advisor to determine what is most suitable when setting up a plan, and how much you can contribute each tax year.ROTH Solo 401(k)Hedgeable allows its clients to participate in a ROTH Solo 401(k) for qualifying small business owners or "1099 employees"! These follow the same contribution rules and procedures, the contributions are after-tax instead of pre-tax, akin to ROTH IRA's compared to Traditional IRA's.SEP IRASEP IRA's are a useful type of account for self-employed or "1099" individuals and provides a higher contribution limit than Traditional IRA's. For 2023. contributions cannot exceed the lesser of 25% of compensation, or $53,000, whichever is smaller.Since there are no employee contributions, it is most useful for a small business owner with no employees. Also, unlike a Solo 401(k), you cannot take advantage of the ROTH option. Historically, SEP IRA's have been a useful tools for self-employed individuals looking for higher contribution plans to save for retirement. Please consult your tax advisor to determine how much you can contribute to your plan each year.SIMPLE IRAA SIMPLE IRA has been used as a low-cost alternative to 401(k)'s for small businesses. This option allows employees to make contributions, while usually requiring employers to pitch in with employer contributions. Unlike a traditional company 401(k), SIMPLE IRA's do not require the complexity of third-party-administrators or annual safe-harbor testing. For 2023. employees can contribute up to $12,500 (or $15,500 if they are older than 50). It is common for employer's to contribute 3% of employees salary with immediate vesting, but this depends on how the plan is set up. SIMPLE IRA's can not be set up for more than 100 employees at any time during the preceding year. Please note, at this time, the IRS does not allow for a SIMPLE IRA to be a ROTH IRA.Custodial Account (UGMA/UTMA)Custodial accounts are a great way to gift cash or securities to minors. In most states, minors are not allowed to own stocks outright or open an investment account for themselves. Under the Uniform Gift of Minors Act (UGMA) or the Uniform Transfer of Minors Act (UTMA) minors can receive cash or securities while an appointed person (who cannot be a minor) manages the account until the minor reaches the age of majority. You can contribute as much as you want to this account, as long as it complies with the requirements of the gifting limits imposed by the IRS ($14,000, or $28,000 for married couples).Personal & Business Trust AccountsHedgeable accepts personal trust accounts, that can be set up in a variety of forms. Regardless of if the plan is revocable, irrevocable, or a "dynasty trust", we can accept the account and begin to invest for the trust beneficiary's goals and objectives. Trust accounts can be opened for a variety of reasons: planned giving strategies to charities, to give part of an inheritance to someone while abiding by certain rules and stipulations, to care for a mentally challenged or disabled person, among other reasons. Please consult with a trust and estate attorney for future guidance on which trust is most appropriate for you.Businesses can open trust accounts as well, to hold money on behalf of clients, the company, or to met certain regulation requirements. In some cases, it may be appropriate to invest the cash instead of letting it sit in a bank account earning next to nothing in interest.What We Do Not AcceptPlease see my answer on trusts that are available to wealthy Americans.You were born poor, but now you are rich. How do you ensure your family will still be wealthy beyond three generations? We do not offer many of these trust types.Although our clients have multiple accounts with us at Hedgeable, this may not capture their full financial picture. Homes, credit card debt, and mortgages are all examples of assets/liabilities that can not be held at our custodian. To get around this issue, we provide account aggregation services on our platform.Disclaimer: This is not a solicitation to buy or sell securities or an offer of personal financial advice.
