Broker Check

Self-Directed Brokerage Accounts

What is SDBA?

For many years, the investment options offered in company-sponsored retirement plans were limited to a pre-selected list of mutual funds and annuity contracts. However, now thousands of employers have enhanced their retirement plans to include a brokerage window for plan participants wanting to work with their financial advisor on their in-plan assets.

This option, known as the Self-Directed Brokerage Account (SDBA), exists in numerous 401(k), 403(b), or 457 plans where participants have access to additional choices.

Opportunity is Everywhere for In-Plan Advice

Not only do Self-Directed Brokerage Accounts (SDBA) allow plan participants to expand their range of investment choices beyond their employer's group plan investment choices, but they can have professional management and customized advice on those important assets.

According to Alight, nearly 50% of group retirement plans in the U.S. now offer SDBAs!
