Orthodox traditional schemes like pension, social security supplements, and retirement benefits are very less profitable. Today these things are replaced by the IRA investment account. You have a great list of IRA’s to make a choice from. Choose the best one that is in accordance with your plans. The IRA types can be categorized mainly in to 3 varieties. Education IRA, Roth IRA and Traditional IRA are the traditional IRA’s. If you want to choose something which has great prospect for investments then choose the non-traditional type of Quest IRA i.e. Self-Directed IRA. These accounts give you the unorthodox option of investing the deposited money of your account. If you are sure on where to invest money then you can do it easily with the Self Directed IRA’s.

Real estate field is another area where you can have more profits in less time if you are just good enough to decide when and where to invest money. You can purchase a piece of land or a new home, where you would think the prices would go sky high in the near future.

Share trading is another fast way of creating wealth. You can choose to make a short term investment if you want quick money. If you are planning for your retirement then the long term option would be more viable to you.
