Self Directed Brokerage Account

A self-directed brokerage account (SDBA) is an option available within some company-sponsored 401(k), 403(b), and 457 accounts. An SDBA allows a participant to invest in more than the pre-selected company choices, providing access to thousands of mutual funds from many well-known fund families. Through an alliance with Howard Capital Management (HCM) SDBA, my clients can gain access to a window of additional options including professional money management, downside risk mitigation, and possible upside growth opportunities.
